Found solution at comments of stackoverflow. If you need just to change text color to yours and assign this subclass you your picker. For whiteColor works as magic.

Only minus i've found that color two lines of selected number is still gray.

class ColoredDatePicker: UIDatePicker {
    var changed = false
    override func addSubview(view: UIView) {
        if !changed {
            changed = true
            self.setValue(UIColor.whiteColor(), forKey: "textColor")
