The status bar icons have turned black ONLY on the home screen. How can I make them white again?
1
The icons are black only on the Home screen. They are white on the recent apps screen, when any app is open, and are even white as they animate into place but turn black when they settle.
I have rebooted the phone, tried the UI Tuning in Settings, changed the desktop background, but nothing has worked. I don't have any apps installed which can alter themes and such.
This occurred this morning (May 12) after a series of updates through Google Play. The desktop would always "hang" for a few seconds after updates but then recover and everything would be as normal, but not this time.

Are you using a custom launcher on your Android device?
 
Example: Nova Launcher
See the steps under "Icon"  sub heading on

Hi James, thanks for answering.
I'm not using Nova or any custom launcher. I don't even have any apps which could alter appearances or themes at all.

Mine did too.  Black only on the home screen.  They are white when i first unlock the phone, then flip to black.  Once in an app, they are white again.  No alternative launcher.

I noticed it after rebooting the phone this morning, but it does coincide with the other post about it happening today (May 12)

I have this problem today morning, 20th June 2020, 4am. I googled and found this forum. I tried some of your suggestions but didn't work. Just a restart worked for me. The phone is Moto E4 plus.
