    I always change the screen temperature myself as I prefer a cool/blue white.
    Look in Accessibility, Screen Accommodations and fiddle about to taste.

    The people who cycle through like 12 iphones on launch weekends because of yellow tint are my favorite. This is going on like 10 years now. Great tradition.

    Maybe being the yellow “tint” your describing is natural and the blue tint is what’s not normal?

    Is there any point at which it's not really a problem with a device but with the user's perception of the device?

    "BUT BUT BUT BUT ITS YELLOW. I sat with 4 Apple Geniuses and we compared all 12 unboxed Max's and they agreed."

    What store was this?

    Silence.

    This reminds me of when I had my OLED TV professionally calibrated, I couldn't stand it. I thought he had made the whites a yellow tint and the colours fade. However, it was my eyes that were the problem, not the TV.

    I have a problem with the iPhone XS Max display. I have turned off TrueTone but white is yellow on my screen.

    When I look 45 degrees onto zhe display I have perfect colors. White is pur white. When I move it slightly a few millimeters the colors are changing.

    But when I hold it normally I have a yellowish screen. Is it normal for OLED screens or is my screen defective?

    That’s OLED. Back when people were complaining about the LCD display tints and demanding OLED displays to solve the problem I told them OLED was going to create more issues that way than it solved because there’s an even higher variance among different samples of OLED displays than there is among the very refined LCD displays Apple was using in the 7’s and 8’s.

    I found that out the hard way going to Android phones.

    Yes. That’s a trait of all OLED phone displays I’ve seen so far. Some display it more severely than others.

    I'd give it some time, but I have never had this problem.

    That’s just super. It will match the new clear but yellowed case I received.

    Every year, people bring this up and guess what it goes away the longer you use your phone. Have had iphone and ipad every year and never an issue!

    I think you need to swap your Max 4 times as well. 4th time’s a charm lol

    You will get used to it.

    You're used to looking at inaccurate whites which seem cooler and so your eyes think that it's normal for whites to have a cooler/blue tint to them. It's not.

    The colors are changing from white to yellow and from yellow to white when you move it a few millimeters.

    And upper screen white is white and on the lower screen (keyboard keys) are yellow. When you move the screen the keys are getting white.

    I think I will return the device. I think its not an issue of the screen. I think its an OLED issue.
