    Well it is happening again guys.

    The white point on my iPhone 5S is yellow, and really noticeable when i pick it up to use it at night after using my MacBook Air which is a cool white.

    I'll try and get a picture comparing it to my old iPhone 5.

    How new is it? Yellowing often fades after a few days of use.

    Yellowing never fades. End of story.

    The phones on display have cool screens. Take it back and demand what's being promised by the display phones.

    If the yellowing remains after 4 or 5 days, contact Apple to arrange a replacement.

    In the past, the yellowing on the screen has been the bonding, which has not fully cured, if this is the case with yours, it should disappear after a few days once the bonding has fully cured.

    Sure it does. My 5s had a noticeable yellow cast out of the box, but is now the same white as my MacBook Pro, which has a colour calibrated screen.

    This issue is so disappointing. It happened to me with my iPhone 5. The Geniuses are stubborn POSs who refuse to even acknowledge the issue, saying there is nothing wrong with the phone and that not all of them are made the same way. Then why don't the ones on display have this issue?

    The iPhone 5S definitely has a different display than the 5 though... at least when I compared my wife's iPhone 5 with a perfect screen and my 5S / the ones at the Apple store.

    The 5s has a warmer color temperature as compared to the 5 and previous iPhones. It was mentioned in the Keynote introduction of the 5s .

    Return it and get another new 5s.

    BTW, what does your serial number start off with?

    I thought mine was yellowish at first, but seems to have sorted itself out now. Had my phone 8 days :)
