    Firstly hi to everybody and secondly sorry for my English, isn't very well
    I have a problem with my iPhone 6,i know that is a problem that is most speaked about, but I don't find the solution. I speak about yellow screen.
    I bought my iPhone 6 the Last week and it came with this yellow screen, I contacted Apple and they said to me that they will replace the iphone. Yesterday came the replacement but the same thing, Yellow screen.
    I contacted Apple again and they said to replace it again.
    You know if there is a solution for this? I don't want to stay replacing and replacing Iphone again and again because is spend time nervous etc,but I don't want to stay with a telephone with poor quality screen.
    I don't have any Apple store near to me and I have only the option to replace by telephone. Any ideas or experience? Thanks for all :)

    Switch to 5s. If you do not need (or you can not use) Apple Pay, it is the same device (a little smaller), but more solid in design aspect.

    Apple does not guarantee a color balanced screen. Some have color temps that are cooler or warmer than others. You could go through many before you find one of your liking.

    Would you be able to post a picture of this? I am not doing a "pix or it didn't happen lol yolo" but would genuinely like to see how this looks as I have never seen it myself. Thanks!

    For some of the iphone launches, some of the new phones had a temporary tint - the chemicals in the screen (for cleaning the glass etc iirc) hadn't evaporated.
    Out of curiousity - what screen brightness level do you use?

    This was only true for the iPhone 4 and it involved circles and stuff in the screen. Not the entire screen.

    It just looks like the backlight LEDs are warmer. All you can do is try again but likely the whole batch had warmer LEDs.

    I speak with Apple again, they see the photo and said that they put in notes to replace with a cool screen.
    I hope they find a cool screen and take away this problem.

    I hope so too. I know the LEDs are color matched to each other most the time but the process is not perfect. I am not a believer in "the glue is not dry yet" theory. It is just different color temp LEDs.

    Hope they make you happy, glad to hear they are going to try.

    Hi, I have news, I speak again with Apple for replace again. They said to me that they have knowledge about this problem and will send iphone 6 with cool screen. I hope will be the last time and I will have a good quality display. Cross fingers...

    I've been through this replacement cycle for issues similar to yours. My advice is to either return it and go with something else or just live with it. You'll make yourself crazy over it. You'll get one with a good screen -- but then something else will be wrong with it. I went from being super-anal and swapping a couple of times to get a PERFECT phone to now not even using a case for my last 2 devices. Handing that perfect phone to your wife and having it stolen within a few months puts it all in perspective nicely. I couldn't be happier and more liberated from my iPhone OCD.

    well, from the pic on p.1 I can see that it's certainly more yellow. I can produce a similar picture of my iPhone 5 next to a 4s. Doesn't matter. Just live with it (I did) and you'll get used to it really quick.

    Does the 6s have a cooler white? Maybe sell it or trade it towards 6s. Sometimes companies use different sources for components like display panels so they're not all the same. I've bought two identical products with one with cooler white panel (good) and the other with warmer white (yellow bad).

    Screen color tint varies quite a bit. One problem is comparing screens to each other. My recently purchased mini 4 looked perfectly white in the Apple store. Compared to the screen on my iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6, the mini's screen looks yellow. If I use it for a short while not looking at the other screens, my eyes adjust and it looks perfectly white again. I've heard the warm white screens are easier on the eyes, but I prefer the cool screens also. After exchanging devices in the past with irregular screens, I'm just happy the mini has an even screen and no other problems. If you are still unhappy with it I would exchange it again, but like someone else said you may be exchanging one problem for another.

    Thanks to everybody, the last solution I will try is with a friend who lives near Apple store. He will try to change it there, I hope there won't be any problem..
