    Experienced this with 2019.4.24f1. All the UI (Image Component with Color or Image PNG) of our game is with different colors when device is in Light Mode, and normal colors when in Dark Mode with iOS 15

    I've found a workaround that doesn't involve editing the plist file — if you are using URP, you can _enable_ HDR in the URP settings to fix the issue. I am sure there's some nonzero performance overhead to this, but so far it hasn't been noticeable.

    I filed a bug for this here:

    I've also reported this issue as case 1381781 ( (now closed as duplicate).
    I'm just throwing a couple of comments in here as being possibly relevant for other affected parties.

    We found that turning the iOS device "Display & Brightness" setting to "Dark Mode" made the rendering issue go away. It could be useful for other affected parties to try this to confirm it also fixes the issue above.

    This obviously isn't a viable fix for consumers, so we also discovered that if we edit the iOS info.plist file for the application and add a "UIUserInterfaceStyle" = "Dark" setting, the issue goes away (although some UI elements such as gamecenter renders as black on a light mode device).
