Despite the fact that the iPhone 12 has received a new body, a radical update did not work. Not only did Apple continue to use the same design elements such as camera design and notches in the screen, but many of the internal components have been left old.
Although, something surprising and new Apple has “rewarded” to its fans.
Some owners of iPhone 12 complained about the greening of the screens. However, everyone has this effect in different ways. Some people have greenery that fills the whole front panel, while others have fragments of it. Despite the fact that the problem affects mainly the classic version of the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro, most likely, there are no complaints about the iPhone 12 mini and 12 Pro Max because the vast majority of buyers simply did not have time to get them after placing a pre-order.
Why has the iPhone screen turned green?
It’s strange, but almost all the photos that confirm the problem are of very poor quality and seem to be deliberately made to hide some data. So it’s no surprise that someone thought it was a rival gag that tries to persuade potential buyers of the iPhone 12 to give it up. Usually I’m also confused by low-quality photos, but in this case there is no reason not to believe them for several reasons:
- First, to make the defect better visible, the display is usually photographed in darkness, rather than in bright sunlight, which is guaranteed to improve the quality of pictures;
- Secondly, users are likely to take pictures of the screen of the new iPhone on an old phone with a worthless camera (because the iPhone is the subject of the shooting), hence the serious drawdown in quality;
- Well, and, thirdly, I know for sure that the problem of planting the screen on the iPhones is a problem long enough to doubt the truth of the presented photos.
So far, it is difficult to say whether the bug in this case is a consequence of deficiencies in calibration, which is quite possible, given that we are talking about AMOLED technology, or associated with deficiencies in hardware components.
But anyway, this problem is far from being new. It manifested itself on a variety of iPhone models with organic screens. Another thing is that before it happened somehow selectively, and this summer there was the largest case of “greening” AMOLED panels, provoked by the update of iOS 13.5.
What to do if the iPhone screen became green?
Then Apple behaved very strangely. The company did not give any official comments about it either immediately after the release of the new version of the operating system, or after. But after a while, it became known that users affected by this bug had been replaced. It is not known for sure whether only the display or the whole smartphone was changed, but the very fact of recognition of the problem – albeit quite implicitly – showed that it was caused by deficiencies in hardware.
Is it possible to say unequivocally that the greenery of the iPhone 12 screens has the same nature? We do not know. But anyway, if you encounter something similar, we recommend not to wait for an update with a fix, but to contact Apple directly.
