Idk if the colors are saturated but it did look different after the update. Didn’t know if I was going crazy or not lol. This is interesting.

Nope you're not going crazy.. I can't tell what it is.. but something changed. Not sure if maybe the settings in iOS12 adjust the display differently depending on ambient light vs iOS11? But the colors look.. idk, dull? Then some sharp? It just does not look calibrated correctly.

I remember reading somewhere in the reddit iOS Beta subreddit that the white point was changed, for whatever reason. Probably to better optimize for the OLED screens. Give it a week and you probably won’t even notice the difference.

They changed how they filter the wallpaper, it could be that, they haven't changed colours OS wide or anything.

All of you have default / same as previous setting of white point?

That's what mine looks like - i am using True Tone.. Maybe they adjusted the percentage of True Tone.. or maybe it's more sensitive?

I'm waiting for update to download so I will report for myself sometime later...

Would be great if someone with two Xs could take a photo with both using same wallpaper or showing a photo on screen.

This is the only thing holding back my update... I was eager to try IOS12, but messing up the screen of iPhoneX is not nice. Does anyone has more information?

You’re not crazy. I noticed it too. The colors are super saturated.
Did they shaft all X users and calibrate the screen for OLED and just pushed the update to X users thinking they wouldn’t notice?

I think they altered the nightshift settings. Mine seemed much warmer after the update but after moving the slider a little it seems to be behaving as expected.

Going to restart my phone and see if there is a difference. My fiancé does have an X that is not updated. I’ll try and grab picks under the same light and same True Tone settings and True Tone off and see if there’s a difference. Who knows if you can even capture this on camera.
