Some people revel in change, others not so much. If you are one of those who feels unsettled when your favorite website updates its home page or your favorite author updates her author photo, you may be comforted to know that you can make the buttons on your iPhone all gray and arrow-shaped again. Just like they were before iOS 7.

Go to Settings>General>Accessibility and toggle Button Shapes on.

Now all your buttons will reassuringly point you in the right direction!
