On launch, the placeholder text & graphics of "Carrier", WiFi, time, and battery are left on the background images (such as "default-os7-4inch-retina.png"), and look pretty bad when overlapped with your actual carrier, wifi, time, and battery level.

Is that just during launch, or do they persist even after the UI proper has loaded? Would simply blanking out the status bar area of the default images fix this? I unfortunately don't have a real iOS7 device to test on.

@BitingChaos

It's during launch.

It looks like on launch: http://i.imgur.com/4w2O3NA.png

It does disappear after the program loads. I think the same thing
happened in older versions, but iOS 7 doesn't mask background stuff like
that in the way iOS 6 and lower did. So you end up with text over text
overlap.

I had the same issue when I ported another open-source app to iOS 7 (a GBA
emulator). It loaded a placeholder image that had its own text.
You just need to blank the top part of the image. I think I opened the
background with something like Paint.NET on Windows, copied the background
color with the dropper (it's an "off-white" / light gray color), and drew a
rectangle over the top, covering the Carrier, WiFi, time, and battery
display.

Thanks,
