Some owners of Apple’s new iPhone 12 flagships are encountering a serious problem with their phone’s display.
Reports of iPhone 12 models suffering from a green or gray glow or a flickering on their display have been popping up in recent weeks. There are complaints of the issue on Apple’s own support forums as well as the MacRumors forums, with those affected saying that they’re seeing the issue when their display brightness is set at 90% or lower.
This issue is affecting the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
According to internal documents from Apple that have been viewed by MacRumors, Apple is aware of this issue and currently investigating it. The company is currently telling its technicians not to service affected iPhone 12 models for now and instead tell owners of those devices to keep their iPhone up-to-date with the latest version of iOS. This suggests Apple thinks that it can fix this green tint issue with a future software update.
This is actually the second green tint display issue that’s affected the iPhone this year. Back in June, some owners of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max said that their display exhibited a green tint, but Apple fixed the problem with with the update to iOS 13.6.1 that was released two months later. Apple called it a “thermal management issue”.
