    Well it has a True Tone display now, so it’s color temperature will match whatever lighting is around the phone.

    I'm guessing it will retain the warmer white balance when true tone is off, much like the 7. This was done for preference by apple (idk why), not just because. That does mean that with true tone on ofc, it will still get quite yellow, which is the feature.

    You can only change the color temperature (aside from adjusting night shift - which only makes it more orange, not less) by jailbreaking.

    My iPhone 8 is being delivered tomorrow though, so I will let you know how it compares.

    Tru-Tone is a feature that can be toggled on or of, not the overall color Tone of the display. But Apple has shifted the color tone of the dislay the last two years as the OP mentioned.

    That’s assuming that Apples algorithm is perfect. I’m not even sure I can say it is good at this point, as I personally see it overcompensating and making displays too yellow.

    To address OP, no one is going to know until they see an X in person. But if it is anything like Samsung’s other OLED displays, it will run cool. Perhaps even too blue.

    So hopefully the two will balance out, although I personally prefer more blues than yellows.

    Got my 8 today. Screen is quite a bit warmer than the 5S display, with True tone and night shift turned off for both.

    Not unbalanced in any way, just less blue looking. Still kind of like the blue look, seems more sharp. Super easy to get used to though, and I actually plan to use True Tone either way, on any of my future iPhones.
