Unfortunately, UIPopoverController is not customizable like that. You can’t change the border color, navigation bar style/color, or arrow style/color: How to customize / style a UIPopoverController.

iOS 7 onwards, you can change backgroundColor of UIPopoverController which affects the navigation background color as well as arrows of popover.

@property (nonatomic, copy) UIColor *backgroundColor NS_AVAILABLE_IOS(7_0);

Usage example:

    if ([self.popoverVC respondsToSelector:@selector(setBackgroundColor:)]) {   // Check to avoid app crash prior to iOS 7
        self.popoverVC.backgroundColor = [UIColor greenColor];

Note – As of now (iOS 7.0.3), in some cases (like set color using colorWithPatternImage:), the simulator doesn’t honor the color but on device it works fine.

Now in iOS 5, popoverBackgroundViewClass is available.

The navigation bar and tool bar inside a popover are just a standard UINavigationBar and UIToolBar, I’ve had success in changing their appearance just as you would with a normal nav bar or tool bar. The border however is not easily customizable.

here I developed a good solution for this trouble:

change color navigation controller in a popover

good luck!

I try to trick it by customizing the viewcontroller inside the popover and then hiding the popover border using this code

UIView * border = [[insideViewController.view.superview.superview.superview subviews] objectAtIndex:0];  
border.hidden = YES;

The app is actually still in development so I’m hoping other people will comment on this solution.
