Changing the status bar text color in splash screen iOS 7

I know that are already some stackoverflow questions that say how to change the status bar for all view controllers. I am currently changing the color of status bar this way:

[[UIApplication sharedApplication] setStatusBarStyle:UIStatusBarStyleLightContent];

In the

Additionally, I have changed the value of
in the plist to NO. However, in the splashscreen it stills shows the status bar text with the black color.

Is it possible to change the color of the status bar text in the splash screen?


In the project plist file add the "Status Bar Style" property (key is UIStatusBarStyle). Then ignore all the possible values listed in the drop down for this property and type UIStatusBarStyleLightContent instead.

And you don't have to set UIViewControllerBasedStatusBarAppearanceto NOin your plist, you can set the preferredStatusBarStyle you want to your view controllers.
