At one time,I remember having a solution for this, but my brain is forgetting.....in IOS 14.4.1. the text in the top right search bar, where we look for tunes...the text is dark, the box is dark, and I can't read the text I'm, searching for.

IF I put the machine into dark mode, it's fine, though. Not the classiest of solutions.....

Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks

Happens on iPad Air2 and iPad Pro....I may have messed with the accessibility settings but think they're back to normal, and the error still happens.....

a mystery......

From my tests when you initially go to the search screen the text is dark black on a dark gray background however if you go to any other tab and return the text is white on a black background and remains that way until you completely exit the app and return.

Thanks, Phil.......that's why it seemed inconsistent to me while trying to figure it out.....I failed to see the pattern. Nice detective work, Phil.
