Possible 4s yellow Tint Fix?
This is my second 4s black replacement, the first one had a dead pixel. When I first got the phone it had a slight warm tint to it. I left the phone in full brightness auto sleep off for two days and after that full brightness with autodim on and auto sleep the following 3 days. After 2 weeks my screen is vibrant and blue tint is back! I compared it to my wife's new white iPhone 4 screen and her is slightly warmer than mine. I also compared it to my coworker's old iPhone 4 and my screen quality is better than theirs. Same blue tint but my screen is brighter than theirs Is it possible the the yellowgate is just glue not cured yet? For those having a yellow tint try what I did and see if it goes away in a week or two. If not see a genius. Oh my serial is c37 btw.

I agree, I'm sure there are screens that are really yellow but it's not a big issue. People tend to blow up small things like this when it comes to ios devices! Just give it a few weeks no need to return it multiple times! Most likely you will get a replacement with a warm tint screen. These devices are being shipped so fast that the glue never has a chance to cure.

I don't think it is necessary to do anything in order to clear up the yellow tint that some people have on the screen of their 4S. A woman who I work with had the yellow tinted screen when she first got the 4S. She didn't do anything to it and now her screen is perfect just like mine.

I do not think glue is the culprit. I think it has more to do with the display makers quality. That being said, you won't notice the tint unless you do a side by side comparison with something else.

Warm screen on a small device looks like crap plain and simple. We are not asking for a blue tint screen that destroys colors and whites. Ideally the perfect screen for this size is bright and neutral. I have made some 4s and 4 comparisons and in most cases the 4s is more neutral in color and brighter than 4 slightly bluish tint but dimmer. My 4s started off warm but cleared up and became more neutral and brighter than an iPhone 4. The point here is that if your 4s is still yellow tint after a month, return it! No one said it is guaranteed to correct itself.
The problem with returning for hope of a better screen is that not every phone is the same. Different lcd manufacturers play a major part on this gamble. I bought my wife a new iPhone 4 and her screen is warmer than my 4s. After a few weeks, the screen remained the same. My previous iPhone 4 on the other hand was not warm like her phone but my 4s was warm but now more neutral and vibrant in contrast.

When I initially purchased my iPhone 4S, I was upset about having the yellowish tint so I took it to the Apple Store at the Millennia Mall here in Orlando and exchanged it. The exchanged 4S had a more yellowish tint than my original so I told the genius to disregard the exchange. That was 3 months ago. Now my display is vibrant and a lot cooler, however, it is still not as cool as my brother's iPhone 4.

I have both a iP4 and an iP4s (C39...).
When I compare the two side-by-side, the ip4s definitely has a warmer tint to the screen.
Like the previous poster said, I prefer the warmer tint. The iP4 screen looks so cold now!
I doesn't seem to affect the viewing quality of my photo's etc.

My yellow tint makes the colors washed out.
My tint is yellow. The colors are washed out, as if the white balance is a little off. The vibrancy? Terrible. I compared my 4s with my boyfriend's 4s- he got his in October, I got mine this week- and he took one look at my phone tonight and said, why is your display so dark?
We compared and there is a tremendous difference. Tremendous. His phone is a bluish tint- his whites are so much brighter- his screen resolution is crisper. I want his phone. Since I just got this I think Apple should replace it. It;s clearly not as sharp as it should be. WHere is the quality control here??!
Who do I call? I bought the Apple Care warranty.
