It seems light-coloured iPhones have a white startup background colour with black Apple logo. As you can’t control the brightness on startup - this screen is offensively bright at night - searing your darkness-adjusted eyes and waking any nearby creature who happens to be peacefully sleeping.

Can you invert it like on dark-coloured iPhones? Black background, white Apple logo?

Unless you jailbreak the phone, no...can't be done.

The startup screen even ignores the accessibility settings.

    Please file a RADAR. Maybe they’ll fix it in future hardware versions. – Wilfred Smith May 8 at 23:21

    Thank you. I've whined about this problem often, but thought I was the only one who found it painful to have a flashlight shining at me during startup. Here's hoping that Apple makes the startup screen more subtle. – Wilfred Smith May 11 at 2:14
