iPhone 4S owners complaining of yellow screens
A number of iPhone 4S buyers have complained that the screens on their new phones don't look right. They say the displays appear washed out and have a yellowish tint.

Based on posts from Apple's official support forum, the problem appears to be most common on black iPhones, although some people also report seeing it on white models as well.



Last year, many early iPhone 4 buyers had issues with yellow patches on the display, which Apple explained was because they had been put together very recently and the glue needed time to finish drying.

The problem this time around appears to be different, as it affects the entire screen, not just small areas.

While some people are suggesting this is an intentional calibration change on Apple's part, that wouldn't explain why some iPhones don't seem to have the problem at all and others appear to have either a blue or green tint, rather than yellow.

Others have speculated it's a result of Apple getting displays from multiple manufacturers. It may be that the screens are the component which was causing the rumored production shortages last month.

    people who made the screens probably pee on it to add some flavor to it, mainly China, despite people kill themselves making crapple products.

This happens with every new apple phone release...they sell these things in huge batches so there are always some issues with the screens...even if the issues don't go away, apple users don't care...they will continue to champion the great quality of their new phones with tiny little off-color screens until apple releases a new phone model with a new tiny little off-color screen.

    Well... only Apple knows what it should look like, but the 4 has a purple background and 4S has an almost grey one.

    How many users? A small handful? Not that im defending them but it always seems to be the case with a new apple product. I compared my ATT iphone to a Verizon iphone and the verizon one had a yellowish tint to it.

    My VZ one looks normal, no yellowish to it. I am thinking it is multi-source issue, poor QC.
