iPhone 11 Users Are Reporting A Strange Green Tint On Their Screens

Owners of the iPhone 11 have reported noticing a strange green tint on their phone screens after downloading the latest version of the iOS operating system.

In the majority of cases, which have occurred after the update to iOS 13.5.1, the screen goes a bizarre shade of green while the phone is entering Dark Mode, Night Shift, or after unlocking the device.

A few folks have said that the screen tint eventually disappears, but that it returns again at seemingly random intervals.

This issue seems to affect the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

There's a good chance that it's just a temporary software problem that will be sorted out when the next update - the iOS 13.5.2 - is available, but still.

If you'd paid the amount of money that these people have paid for a phone, you want no such thing to be happening, wouldn't you?

The issue was first identified by MacRumours after spotting loads of Reddit users, as well as posts on their own website, reporting the green tinting.


One person actually pointed it out last month, writing: "About 25%' of the time when I unlock my launch day iPhone 11 Pro the screen looks all washed out with a green tint.

"After about 3 seconds it flashes back to normal. Anyone ever have this happen or know if this is a problem on iPhone 11s?'

"I should probably do a restore/set up as new but I'm trying to avoid that if possible."

Yeah, restarting and rebooting everything on your device just because the screen sometimes goes a bit weird and green seems a bit like the nuclear option in this case.


Especially if it'll be sorted out soon with a simple software update, anyway.

While this anomaly takes place across a number of phones running on a couple of system updates, there is one unifying factor in all of the cases - they all have OLED screens.

Forbes has suggested that perhaps the issue might not be as simple as just a software bug, and faulty OLED screens could be affected by the change in operating system.

This is far from the first complaint about the new system, either.


People have reported phone batteries draining too quickly - an old problem for Apple phones - and unexpectedly ended calls, lost contacts and deleted emails.

It remains to be seen whether Apple will take steps to resolve the issues.

LADbible has approached Apple for a comment.
