    I thought the yellow thing is over. But mine is yellow! I compared it to my 6 and 6 plus and it is yellow.

    Any of you have the same issues?

    I will return it at T-Mobile

    First thing I checked, and I'm happy to report my screen is just slightly cool, which is what I prefer! Hope you get what you want without too many swaps.

    It's a slight yellow tint on mine... The 6ers are more blueish...

    Always a surprise with new iPhones....

    Same here, holding them side to side white screens are slightly yellower than the iPhone 6.

    Isn't the yellow tint due to the glue not being dry yet? Just give it a couple days, should go away.

    I knew it would only be a few hours before the OCD crowd got out their magnifying glasses and microscopes, and then started shouting from the rooftops.

    I'm happy with the temperature of my 6s+ display as well (slightly cooler than my iPhone 5s).

    I doubt this will go away... I mean it's not that ugly and mostly notable in side by side comparison... But as always... It's hard for me to accept this... I like the blue one better..

    I don't know why they use two different display types

    Phone hot? Let it settle for a few hours
    Battery life bad? Give it a few charge cycles
    Screen yellow? Give it a week or so to cure (apparently this is not true)

    With every new release, update, etc all three of these get posted. What is the common answer.....chill. Have some patience, enjoy your device. These things usually always resolve with a little bit of usage.

    My rear camera seems to be mis-aligned by .025mm. This is unacceptable!!!!!!!!! ;)

    My iPhone 4 display was spot-on, my i5 was yellow and my 6+ was a creamy slightly yellow affair. They're all different unfortunately and some folk are lucky to get a perfect one. I would only swap if the display was uneven, had dead pixels or it was deep yellow.

    My 6S has a slightly warmer white (not yellow) screen when held side to side with my 6. I didn't notice anything until I saw this post and of course had to check. My 6S screen is fine and I'm very happy with it and the phone in general.
    My mini 4 has a warmer white screen than my Air 2 only noticeable side to side making the mini look slightly yellow. When I use the mini for a short time away from the Air 2 the screen looks bright white again.

    Same misinformation, different year. The screens have not used glue since the 3GS.

    My 6S shows the yellow tint. But worse the top left 1/4 of the display is quite a bit darker than the rest, it's really noticeable especially on the initial all-white setup screens. Return.

    OK fair enough. So any yellowish-ness requires an immediate return (if you don't like it)? It will never change?

    Why would it be better in a week when others are blueish from the beginning... makes no sense to me

    My screen is pretty close to perfect. Or at least it is to my eyes. My iPad Air 2 has a blue tint, so my iPhone 6s is a little yellower in comparison, but I can't complain!
