Lightroom Mobile: iPhone on/off setting hard to recognize

The on/off settings in the iPhone settings screen are hard for someone who's not a UI developer to scrutinize:

Does left mean "off" or "on"?  I'm left-handed, which may have influenced my unconscious reading of these buttons as "on". As a consequence, I just wasted 30 minutes trying to understand why LR Mobile wasn't syncing. 

Apple's convention is much easier to recognize:

Of course, that use of color conflicts with the visual scheme of LR.  But blue is used to indicate "Backed Up"...

Wow, never heard of anyone having this issue before, pretty sure we aren’t all designers etc.
Now you know what they do what’s the problem?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC for mobile: Add color to the off/on slide switches..

Suggestion to add color to the off/on slide switches. The current states are lighter and darker gray and I have trouble knowing what is off or on. How about making “on” green, and “off” red? Or some variation of that. Thanks.
