Apple warns of possible screen burn-in on new iPhone X

Apple says iPhone X display may see some burn-in

With the former, Apple explains that its OLED display is among the best in the industry, however a common characteristic of the technology is that color and hue shifting can be noticed when viewing the screen from side angles.

Digging into the code of iOS 11 Golden Mater version, released last month, revealed that the company has tried to implement software measures to mitigate iPhone X screen burn-in issues.

Here, we are talking about the screen burn-in problem. After spending $1000 on an iPhone X, people would expect it to be flawless and superior to every other device. Apple is trying to let your expectations down a bit by laying out a whole support page on its website about the panel - if you want it in full, it's linked below the story. Hence, you may not be able to get the phone replaced in a warranty center claiming you have received a faulty product.

The most important things mentioned in the document are changes in color and hue when the screen is viewed from certain angles, and some burn-in over time.

Prior to iPhone X, Apple has only used OLED on Apple Watch and Touch Bar on MacBook Pro but the 5.8-inch Super Retina display on iPhone X is a very different use.

Apple's quick to point out that this is a characteristic of OLED and normal behavior. Apple says it's worked hard to minimize burn-in, but that it might still appear after "extended long-term use" of the iPhone X. This is also expected behavior and can include "image persistence" or "burn-in", where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen.

Apple notes that users can reduce the likelihood of burn-in by using the Auto-Brightness setting and reducing the duration of the Auto-Lock timer. Hopefully, it'll lead to a long and healthy life for the phone's 5.8-inch screen. It typically occurs when the same high contrast image as been active for a long time.

We will update you guys as soon as we hear more details on the matter.
