    Hey guys,

    This is my first post. I just purchased a new iPhone 7 plus this week. Upon activation I noticed the display screen had a warm yellow tint to it when compared to my crisp white 6. I noticed within 24 hours the screen was corrected displaying sharp colors. Common?

    What would cause that to self-correct? Do LCD's warm up after the first usage when new or something?

    Thanks!

    I don't know about the iPhone 7 self correcting itself. But I do know that the iPhone 7 has a warmer tone versus the stark blueish tone compared to the iPhone 6s. So perhaps, you just adjusted to the overall tone of the iPhone 7 display after some initial usage.

    Was "Night Shift" turned on initially, then turned off "...within 24 hours..."?

    I heard that color can change as the screen's adhesive cures.

    Might have heard this glue drying thing long ago but it does not apply today.

    No, night effect was off. It had a yellow tinted display and it seemed to sort itself out in a day or two. Strange but I read that it could be from the glue as well. Its working great now.

    The glue drying argument is, to my knowledge and experience, a myth. If your display has a warmer tint when you get it then it's not going to get better or fix itself. You've likely just gotten used to it. This happens every generation and there's a lot of variation between individual iPhones, though I believe they must be within Apple's level of tolerance. I've had iPhones with both warm and cool tints to varying degrees. I don't use my iPhone constantly with another iPhone at the same time so it personally doesn't bother me anymore.
