    I just noticed while playing mini metro that the the screen of my XR is warmer compared to the top half of the screen. It’s slightly more yellowish towards the bottom. It’s not bad - I hadn’t noticed it until I saw it in mini metro and then purposely looked for it - is this worth getting it exchanged over.

    Without an image there is no way we can help.

    It is still under warranty so if it bothers you, take to the Apple store and see what they think.

    It’s not that apparent but I’ll try to get an image

    Yep I can see it.

    Like I said if it bothers you take it to the Apple store.

    I have this to a degree. I'm super anal about this kind of stuff and I've looked at probably twenty Xr's is different stores. Every single one has had it. Some better than others. It drove me crazy for the first month I had the phone but have accepted it and moved on.

    Pretty much every LCD I own has this to some degree. It’s only noticeable when the white balance is warmer.

    iPhone XR
    iPad Air 3
    My old iPad Air 2 (only noticeable on night shift)
    I had a tv that had it really bad thaT I took back because of it
    An iPad Pro again I took back but only because it was really bad
    Even the monitors at my work have it

    In fact the only thing I’ve seen not have it is my current tv.

    However yours looks quite bad so I’d maybe see if it can get replaced.

    Not worth it to have the device replaced with a refurb unit or cracked open to replace the display.

    The backlight for the XR is at the bottom of the display and not surrounding it, so there will be color temp variations.

    Pretty much every iphone in history has experienced this to some extent.

    No. Not unless you find it completely distracting where it is affecting the display or it would continue to worsen. The problem is, if you start playing the ‘exchange game’, it doesn’t mean the next display would have perfect uniformity either.
