While the chance of it happening is rare, following these suggestions will hopefully help users from having issues with iPhone X burn-in.

With the iPhone X newly upon us, and just after numerous Pixel 2 XL issues have surfaced, Apple is warning users that they may see possible iPhone X burn-in. On top of that, there’s the chance that you may see a slight shifting in both color and hue. This has something to do with the fact that Apple’s new flagship’s Super Retina display is an OLED display as opposed to the LCD display the iPhone 8/8Plus use.

As Apple puts it:

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.”

To combat the chance of this happening, Apple suggests you use Auto-Brightness. On top of that, the Cupertino company suggests using a short auto-unlock period and minimizing having static, high-brightness images on your screen. A final suggestion from Apple is to keep your phone’s software updated.

While the chance of it happening is rare, following these suggestions will hopefully help users from having issues with iPhone X burn-in. Hopefully, it’ll lead to a long and healthy life for the phone’s 5.8-inch screen.
