iPhone X Yellow / Blue shifted Display issue fix.

<>
Apple had recently launched most powerful iPhone till date –iPhone X. The iPhone contains many new features, design and technology than other iPhone models. One new hardware feature is screen which is OLED made unlike other iPhone models like iPhone 7/8 where LED screens are used. However this OLED screen has been reported with display issues like bluish or yellowish screen. iPhone X display is head on there is an almost yellow or blue tint to it; when turn/tilt it to the side it is obviously much more white.

Apple has released a support document on this issue. Saying it is not a defect, and that it is 'normal' with OLED to experience a colour change when viewing the phone at a slight angle. However for many users  this is bothering and annoying as such costly phone has very basic display issues. Similar issues were reported with Google pixel 2 with bluish screen OLED. Goole too had denied this as issue in the Pixel 2 but declared it as OLED screen thing.
“That's normal for OLED (not the yellow) but the bluer / cooler tint to the screen. When you shift an OLED panel off centre it will display a cooler colour.”

Some expert says that’s related to OLED technology.
All Samsung S8 displays are just like that. It might vary the tint when the display is presented, from white, to blue or green. But facing the display, it has a very characteristic yellow tint.
However if you too are facing the issue and feeling issues with it you should try below listed possible fix or workaround for iPhone X blue screen issue.
Solution 1 : Set - Colour Filters
The best option I have seen is to change the hue to counteract the yellowness of the display, this in turn means the off angle colour shift is less noticeable - although you you look closely you will find that issue is still there!!
Go To-> Settings - General - Accessibility - Display Accomodations - Color Filters
Then select 'Colour Tint' and move the hue 2/3 of the way.

Solution 2: True Tone Settings
Turned True Tone off on your iPhone X. As the screen sometimes fees like Night Shift mixed with True Tone, which adds a noticeable yellow colour. Turning this feature off may give better results.

Makes the OLED of the X pop.
Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations > Color Filters.
Not very sure if Apple is going to look at issue and find an alternative to this as there are no official statements release by Apple for iPhone X screen color issue. As Apple have already produced million of iphone X copies.
However this is for sure that many users are not liking this and may want to return their devices.

I have the yellow tint issue and wasn't sure if it's normal or a defect. If you say this is normal then I'm not sure why people love OLED screens so much. This yellow tint makes the white and gray color dull and yellowish.

Yellow tint isn't normal. There are multiple screen calibrations out in the wild. i consider the yellow version a defect. More people need to rise up against the yellow versions. There is no 1 iPhone X display or calibration. There is a good one and a bad one. Return the phone until you get the good one!

Hi my name is oren and i am from israel and i find amazing solution for the problem of yellow screen in iphone x.
the solution is to make a yellow wash to the screen.
open true tone and night shift and put it on the high warm. put the brightness on high.
leave the iphone like that about half an hour preferably with a white background.
after that close true tone and night shift and look the screen and you love what you see. a nice white screen with no yellow at all.
do it again after a while and the yellowish disappear forever.

I have two iPhone 8 (wife's and mine) one bought two months ago and the other one last week. There's an inconsistency on the screens and that's the problem because the screen of my Space Gray it's way more yellow than the Silver one from my wife's. And even if you try to solve it thru setting you will never get the same screen colour on both.

The nightshit 'fix' worked for me. Keep nightshift turned off but move the warmth slider back and forth and voila! Defo a bug in the settings page. Once I did that - I didn't need to revisit it and my screen is no longer yellow. Thank you orenhazan!!
