    I personally have never seen that on my device or on the iMore forums. May I suggest a device reset, and if that doesn't work, make a appointment with Apple.

    I don't see it as uneven. Do you have Night Shift on?

    Looks fine to me. I don't know what the processor would have to do with the dispay but ok. If you feel like there is something wrong with your screen take it back to Apple and try again with another model. No screen is perfect but Apple uses very good screens. I don't see why you would have a display with uneven lighting unless you got a defective model.

    No I don't. Are you trying to over dissect your phone looking for a problem?

    I see what you're talking about and I've seen it on every apple screen I've owned from the 4 to the 6S. It's not quite "uneven" but not quite "even" either. I've just has to get used to it and forget about it. And trust me, it's a tough one to overlook, but the overall phone experience is worth it.

    If you see it, explain it to the rest of us. I don't see a thing.

    Is a little tough to explain, but I consistently see the top of the screen as darker than the rest of the display. It's something others only notice when I point it out, and even then it's only really noticeable on a white or grey image.

    Apple does make the top part of the screen a bit darker. That's so on the lock screen the time and date stand out more. Or "pop". It makes light colored wallpapers look bad. But I don't even see that in the screenshot provided. The coloring seems to have improved recently. I don't see as much darkening as I used to. The text time/date is supposed to change from white to black when a light colored wallpaper is used. But it hasn't worked all that well until iOS 9. It has improved. But when a light wallpaper was used, rather than it change to black text, it would darken the screen so the white text could be seen better. I just did testing, and didn't see any darkening. They apparently have done a better job with changing the text color with the wallpaper color. The OP may still see this screen darkening.

    That makes a lot of sense and the 6s doesn't show it nearly as much as the iPod Touch did. I've gotten used to it now and have no issues, it's just something new iPhone users coming from android or another platform will see immediately.

    Here's some comparisons I did 2 years ago. I don't see it now.
