At the moment the causes of this problem are not known, but it seems that it was born later updating devices to iOS 13.4.1 and also continued with iOS 13.5 and iOS 13.5.1. In addition, the bug is affecting devices with different screens (iPhone 11 has an LCD display, while the other models have an OLED panel), indicating that the problem is not in terms of components. Being a bug that strikes at random and in the most disparate situations, it is difficult to intervene promptly to resolve it, but in-depth analysis is necessary, especially by Apple.
iPhone 11, the screen turns green: what happens
L’iPhone 11 it is not the first smartphone that in recent years has this type of problem with screens. Similar reports have also arrived for the Galaxy S20 Ultra and for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. In both cases, the manufacturer’s software intervention was necessary to fix the problem.
In the case ofiPhone 11 the causes are not yet known, but by analyzing user reports it is possible to outline the field of intervention, that is, the reasons that lead most to the presence of this phenomenon. Reading the comments you can find three main causes:
- Dark active theme.
- Night Shift active (function that automatically adjusts the display colors to the hottest graduations to reduce eye fatigue).
- Very low brightness.
The combination of these three characteristics would lead to Apple smartphone to show the green screen for a few seconds and then return to normal. Users also tried to switch the device off and on again, hoping that the situation would improve, but nothing has changed.
As mentioned above, the problem is started emerging with the release of iOS 13.4.1 and the bug could be right at the software level. What to do if you have the same problem with the iPhone screen? Nothing, just wait for news from the Cupertino company, which is working on a new version of iOS (13.5.5) in which there may be a solution to the problem.
