Hey guys!

I would like to ask you if your iPhone (3/3GS/4S/5) has turned yellow or lost it's colour and how long do you have it. Thanks!

4/4S/5 will not, it's white panels are covered by glass.

I have heard of the 3G and 3GS turning yellow as the rear is plastic. Like menel said on 4 and 4S the rear is glass and on the 5 it is aluminium and glass which will not change colour over time.

The 4, 4S and 5 don't change color because the panels are glass, as said. I can't vouch for the other phones because I've only had black.

My white 3GS neve turned white I had it for little over 18 months, nor did my white 4 I had that for just over 2 years I never bothered with the 4S, I now have the white 5 and have no colour problems either yet had it since August 2012.

I didn't have any problems with discoloration on my white iphone 3g or 3gs (although they did get dirty due to being plastic). I opted for black in both my iphone 4 and 4s but I've never heard of that issue and my iphone 5 which is white hasn't changed in color at all either although it did appear to because I was using a zagg hd invisible shield which started to yellow, causing my phone to look like it was as well.
