If you’re lucky, your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus won’t have any problems at all. However, there are some owners who are seeing a yellowish hue on the handset’s display. Additionally, some are reporting dimmer screens than those on previous handsets. Apparently, these issues are caused by the latest models having a much warmer color spectrum than most are used to. Read on for a fix…
Let it dry
Before I walk you through the tutorial, you should know that during the iPhone manufacturing process, an adhesive is used on its display, so it’s possible that it has not completely dried yet. If this is the case, it will cast a slight yellow hue onto the display. This glue is used between the iPhone 7’s LCD and its glass surface. It would certainly be strange if it’s not dry already, and it could be an indication of manufacturing problems.
Some iPhone 7 users have taken their handsets back to Apple and have received replacements because of this issue. Unfortunately for some, the problem returned after a couple of days with their second device.
The remedy for this would be to wait for a few days before trying anything else. But if you’ve been patient already, it’s time to move on and read the following tutorial.
How to remove the iPhone 7 yellow display hue
The following tutorial assumes you are using an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus with the latest version of iOS 10. However, if you’re using the latest version on an older handset, it’s still good to know how to manipulate the settings.
Step 1: To start with, go to the Settings App; tap to open it.
Step 2: When inside of Settings, go to –> General and then Accessibility.
Step 3: Next, tap on Display Accommodations and then choose Color Filters.
Step 4: Now that you’re inside the color filter settings, switch the Toggle to ON and then select the Color Tint option at the bottom.
Step 5: It’s now in this next part that you can correct the iPhone 7 yellow display color problem. To make the changes, go to the Hue Slider and move it until your handset’s screen color is more acceptable.
Step 6: If the last step didn’t get you exactly what you need, go to the Intensity Slider above and move it around until you do.
And that’s it; you should not be able to see the yellowish hue that bugged you a few minutes ago. Instead, you should have the standard bright white hue most people are happy with. However, it’s your iPhone 7, so why not play around with it and find something different? After all, you don’t have to have a handset that looks exactly like everyone else’s.
On the other hand, if you’ve followed the instructions above, and you still have the yellow hue, it may be time to take it to either your carrier’s store or directly to Apple, as either may be able to correct the problem in-store or offer you a replacement handset.
