    Does Your iPhone 5 Screen Seem Yellow? Donít Worry Overmuch

    iPhone 4 on the left; iPhone 5 on the right



    There have been quite a few worries out there on the web today, with new owners of the iPhone 5 comparing the screen to the older iPhone 4 and 4S. I was one of these early adopters, and I also set the phones next to each other to see the differences. When I turned them both on to look at the difference in screen ratio, I noticed that the new iPhone 5 screen had a markedly yellow tint.

    I did what anyone might do upon seeing a possible defect in a brand new gadget device: I panicked.

    Then I spent a little time on some other sites on the internet, and found out that I might have overreacted.

    The yellowish tint has appeared on many new iOS devices, usually the ones within the first few days of release. The iPad, the iPhone 4S, and of course the iPhone 5 have all been photographed and videoed next to their older brethren to show the differences. MacRumors even started an ďofficialĒ yellow tint thread last week as a nod to the typical new screen issue.

    However, the cause of this yellow tint may be simple. Apparently, thereís an adhesive for the digitizer that takes a little while to fully cure. While itís still drying, it gives a new screen a yellowish tint. According to many sources, this tint will go away in the next few days, or in a week or so. Itís nothing to worry about. A similar answer was proposed in an official Apple discussion thread, so thatís at least two separate sources saying essentially the same thing. Iím comforted.

    Now, if your iPhone 5 continues to stay yellow, or develops any of the other issues being reported, it may be time to take it in for a replacement.
