I've just had the One UI 6l.1 update pushed out top my S21 Ultra and am dismayed to find that the lock screen is now monochrome grey on black. The clock and any notification icons are all just grey. 

Within just a few seconds I am wishing I hadn't installed it, as I can't see anything in settings about this. 

Previously it was very easy to recognise the notifications, eg the green WhatsApp one. Now it's grey. Email notifications all now show the same grey envelope outline instead of the red or blue envelopes that different apps showed before. 

What a mess.

I agree I hate not having the colour on my AOD display all the icons except the Samsung Free app are white. Who decided to remove the colour wants his head looking at. Why should you have to use Goodlock or Lockstar and the likes of NavStar to give it the colours you want. The developers have no brains!

As a developer myself, it's usually not developers who make choices like these, but usually a product team or another arm of the business.

Same. I would think someone upstairs was terrified the new so called AI nonsense would suck battery so they have turned off colour and reduced brightness to save power. Brainless decision when it compromises use of the phone

I actually have colour in my AOD, not sure it's because I use goodlock or not. I'll turn it off and see what happens.

Only colour I have is the clock.

Any solution found yet, apart from installing something I don't want to install.

Yeah support are telling me to install goodlock and Lockstar which I can't find. I tried 2 third party apps but they suck battery like crazy. I have noticed since my post that the Facebook notification is the usual blue f so if that can use colour, why can't the others?

Fixed it on mine by doing Edit Lock Screen. Then choose the time on the edit screen and select it, then change it's colour using the custom colour pallette and picking white, then the lock screen became visible again.
