According to some users, iPhone 12s are having some pretty annoying screen issues. All new Apple smartphone models would be affected.
The Oled panels of the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and Pro Max display a green or gray tint in some owners. In others, it is a flicker that is noticeable from time to time. According to them, the problem would occur when the brightness drops below 90%. A rather disturbing quack which concerns iPhone models carrying the last three versions of iOS 14 (14.1, 14.2 and even beta 14.3).
This is not the first year that Apple has faced this kind of problem. Last year it was the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max that showed a greenish tint on the screen. The problem appeared following the iOS 13.4.1 update and was fixed by the California firm with the iOS 13.6.1 update. Everything suggests that this is once again a concern linked to firmware of the smartphone, rather than the design of the phone itself. Apple should undoubtedly fix the problem very quickly.
But for the moment, without really playing the ostrich, Apple is not communicating on this subject. According to an internal document that the MacRumors site managed to obtain, the company would have learned of the problem, but would have instructed its employees not to support iPhones with this screen problem. Instead, Apple Store techs should advise customers to keep their devices as up-to-date as possible – which could effectively portend a fix via an upcoming update.
