Updated February 21, 2017

You have the option to change the dial pad to a high contrast look referred to as white on black. This reverses the colours. The dial pad then appears white, with black numbers and a purple call button.

Press the "Home" button on the bottom-front of the iPhone.

Tap "Settings."

Tap "General."

Tap "Accessibility."

Tap slider to the "On" position next to "White on Black."

Tap the "General" button to save your changes.
