Description John Miller [MSFT] 2015-11-19 19:28:13 UTC

   Entry placeholder text color is black instead of the default gray. 

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   new Entry { Placeholder = "Test" };

**Actual Results:**

   Placeholder text color is black. 

**Expected Results:**

    Placeholder text color should default to gray like previous versions. 

**Build Date & Platform:**

   XF 2.0
   iOS 9

**Additional Information:**

   PlaceholderColor can be used to workaround this, but it should default to Gray so you don't have to modify a bunch of stuff after this update.
