Apple warns of screen burn-in on iPhone X

Apple has warned that the iPhone X’s OLED display may experience “slight visual changes” with extended long-term use.

This may include image burn-in, where the display shows a faint remnant of an image 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,” said Apple.

Mashable noted that Google Pixel 2 XL owners have reported similar issues with their devices.

Apple also highlighted that if you look at an OLED display from an off-angle, you might notice slight shifts in colour and hue.

“This is a characteristic of OLED and is normal behaviour,” said Apple.

“We’ve engineered the Super Retina display to be the best in the industry in reducing the effects of OLED burn-in.”
