This was a common occurrence between the iPad 2 and The New iPad. I think it's a trend we are seeing from Apple. It's really not a huge deal IMHO.

Isn't this due to glue? And it goes away after a few days of use?

Just the thread name alone ... Yellow Screen "Gate" should invalidate anything the OP says. ... this crap is just out of control on launch day.

It's what people say every year, and it goes away. Hence why the threads about it only last from launch to ~6-8 weeks after.

Wait it out or exhange it.

Also, stop saying gate.

I normally get awful yellow screens, but I got lucky this time. iPhone 5 screen is the best one I've had yet.

This happened with the iPhone 4/4S. It didn't happen with my 4 though.

Wow. I figured it'd be at least 72 hours before the OCD folks crawled out of their parents' basements to complain about the mysterious screen quality anomalies

I had the reverse problem: my white iPhone 4S had a yellow screen and my black iPhone 5 has a good cool blue screen.

I recommend returning your iPhone 5 and buying another one. The yellow screen won't go away. Mine didn't. I asked to swap my white iPhone 4S for another one and the replacement had a yellow screen also.

See my thread I started two weeks ago. Called it, of course.

THis happens every year. Every year people say its supposed to be warmer. Every year people say its glue.

Its neither. Get your phone replaced.

I have a beautiful cool blue iPohne 5 sitting next to me. First time I've gotten a perfect screen on a launch phone.

Wait on the jailbreak. Before I rooted my Gnex the screen was very yellow, but now it's rooted and I was able to change the settings. It's very white now and the blues look blue. We are able to change the colors, but not unless you jailbreak. But if it bothers you that much, exchange it - but you may get another one just like that.

I have a noticeably yellow screen. First thing I noticed when opening up safari. However, it seems a bit easier on the eyes than the blueish tint.

Had the same problem - Too yellowish

Called Apple support. Some genius there picked up and offered me to return it at a store and wait whenever they have another piece available.
(That would be after all the current rush is gone!)

In the past I got replacements for the same issue - but had to do it 2/3 times before I got the piece with the white tinge that I liked.
I will do the same again. It just requires you to take the Applecare and they also put a hold for the cost of the Iphone being replaced.
Just a pain.

I noticed this right away on my iPhone 5. It's very yellow. I'm pretty disappointed. I was expecting the richer colors, but my iPhone 4 has richer colors than this.

Hi. New here. My iPhone 4 had a really cool, bluish tint. Looked great for certain things, but made photos look overly cool. I'm loving the warmer look of my iPhone 5 so far. Thanks.

I'm assuming it's because of the full sRGB color profile.

I just don't understand what happened to Apple's QA.
