I always change the screen temperature myself as I prefer a cool/blue white.
Look in Accessibility, Screen Accommodations and fiddle about to taste.
it always changes contrast tho doesn't help we need a temp slider

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.

Off-axis color shift still there?
Yes. That’s a trait of all OLED phone displays I’ve seen so far. Some display it more severely than others.

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.
