Why is my iPhone 6s screen yellow

What to do if your iPhone screen suddenly turns yellow

Of course, since iOS 9.3, the iPhone has a new screen mode called Night Shift, which immerses the display colors in a more pleasant (warmer) color spectrum after sunset. But this does not necessarily have to be activated if the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus have a yellow screen. You can easily check whether the function is activated or not.

To do this, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up Control Center. If you can read "Night Shift: One to Sunrise" here and the text is white instead of black, then the mode is activated. A tap on it deactivates it.

Alternatively, there is another cause of the "problem". As the new iPhone generation is currently being shipped quickly after production, the adhesive between the display and display glass may not be completely dry and thus cause a slight yellowing However, this is not a cause for concern, so with new devices it is sufficient to allow a few days to pass before the display has its usual color.If this does not bring any improvement, then you can correct the color manually.
