A new day, a new bug. That’s probably what Apple iPhone users might say after their iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max started showing random green tint on the display when the users unlock their phones. The issue hasn’t affected all iPhone 11 lineups and units but a few affected users took it to Reddit to discuss it when they found out about it.
As mentioned, there’s no clear reason as to why the iPhone 11s that are affected by this issue are behaving as such. The green tiny isn’t permanent and rather vanishes in three seconds after hopping in once the users unlock his/her iPhone. Apparently, it happens 25% of times according to Reddit users whenever he tries to unlock his iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Additionally, engaging Night Shift and Dark Mode appears to be another trigger for the green tiny to swoop in as well. Many users suspected that it could be a hardware issue, however, it appears to be a software issue people have been facing ever since they upgraded to iOS 13.4.1. Apple hasn’t addressed the issue yet so it is probably a few days of waiting until the issue is resolved.
According to Mac Rumors, the bug appears to have affected iPhone 11 series majorly running on iOS 13.4.1, iOS 13.5, and iOS 13.5.1 including a bit of iPhone X users who have complained about the same issues as well.
The Cupertino-based tech juggernaut is already working on iOS 13.5.5 beta so it will be just a matter of time until Apple acknowledges the software bug and patches it up probably as iOS 13.5.2 relieving affected users. Meanwhile restarting the iPhone or keeping it idle for a few seconds after unlocking the phone might work.
