iOS Implementing Designs for iPhone Customizing Table View Controllers Styling the Tab Bar

I set the "tintColor" to "whiteColor" in IB but it has no effect on the tab buttons.

I select the tabBar in IB and then set the tintColor in the "View" section to whiteColor like it says in the video, but my buttons stay blue.

If I use:

[[UITabBar appearance] setTintColor: [UIColor whiteColor]];

in my app delegate customizeUserInterface method it works fine.

Is there a different way to do this in IB? I am using iOS8.2, Xcode 6.2.
