    Hi guys,

    I just received a new iPhone 6S 64GB Silver. Now compared to my iPhone 6, the whites on the 6s are tinged with yellow quite noticeably. I have got a replacement for it and it's exactly the same.

    I phoned apple and they said this shouldn't be, the colour should be exactly the same as my iPhone 6.

    They told me to call provider and get another swap, i'm wondering if this is normal or if anyone else has noticed this?

    Would like some advice on this please.

    Seems that way! My iPhone 6 display looks beautiful in comparison. Making me consider whether I should upgrade or just keep the 6!

    I wonder if the advent of screen blue/yellow dimming with iOS 9.3 if these complaints will simmer down? I'm looking forward to the feature myself as I prefer the ability to change screen temperature whenever I please. For those wondering what I'm talking about, look up iOS 9.3 "Night Shift"

    Seems like while it will allow things to get more "yellow" compared to normal for night/dark environment purposes, there's no capacity to make things more "blue" compared to normal.

    I really wished people could show me how to tell if my screen has a yellow tint etc

    Or should I just call this a case "ignorance is bliss"?

    Or just a case of not having any issues with that.

    No, it's NOT normal.

    Actually it is normal. There is quite a large range of LCD color temps, spanning from cool to warm. Now there are outsiders that are not normal. I had an iPhone 4s that was so yellow, that green text bubbles were illegible. That is clearly not normal. But a slight yellow or blue tint falls within the spectrum. My 6s is more yellow than my iPhone 6, but my iPad Air 2 is more blue than my iPad 2.

    i posted before a comparison of both colour temperatures and the yellow is a better representation of real life.

    either way, your eyes adjust and you don't notice unless holding side by side.

    My 6s is whiter than my previous 6 when I compared them side by side. But I already saw some 6s with very warm screens. My main concern would be to get an uneven screen rather than a warm screen.
