iPhone X OLED Display Can Show ‘Slight Visual Changes’ Over Time, Says Apple
The new 5.8 inch OLED screen and Apple call it Super Retina display. The first time an iPhone is equipped with the OLED panel. However, there are specific disclaimers that you should take note of. Apple wants Apple X customers to know the hue is shifting in the display when viewing it at off-angles.
The early reviews of iPhone X are coined as the same notion. The company’s Super Retina Display the iPhone X is best OLED display on the market.
Even though this is the first time Apple has used an OLED panel in its iPhone, the company did equip the display in its other products. For instance, the Apple Watch features an OLED screen along with the TouchBar on the new MacBooks. However, the biggest screen on an iPhone to date is the 5.8-inch OLED display which is very different. Here’s how Apple explains the matter:
If you look at an OLED display off-angle, you might notice slight shifts in color and hue. This is a characteristic of OLED and is normal behavior. With extended long-term use, OLED displays can also show slight visual changes. This is also expected behavior and can include “image persistence” or “burn-in,” where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen. This can occur in more extreme cases such as when the same high contrast image is continuously displayed for prolonged periods of time. We’ve engineered the Super Retina display to be the best in the industry in reducing the effects of OLED “burn-in.”
The company suggests that you should use Auto Brightness, running the latest software and apply a shorter Auto-Lock period to stretch the life of display and avoid any screen related issues.
