Ever since the first batch of iPhone 12 series units arrived, users reported screen flickering and green/gray tint or glow on the displays under certain conditions. Turns out, Apple has already acknowledged the issue albeit internally.
This comes from MacRumors where the folks got a hold of an internal document that Apple shared with its Apple Authorized Service Providers. The document acknowledges the issue on the iPhone 12 family that could be affecting all four of them – iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPhone 12 mini.
The document reads that technicians must acknowledge customer complaints about the issue and notify them that the issue is being investigated. Moreover, Apple has asked its technicians to not do anything to the affected iPhones. Rather, ask customers to keep their iPhones updated with the latest iOS version.
Apparently, Apple is pretty confident that it is a software-related issue and won’t require hardware tinkering. For those who stay updated with tech news, iPhone 11 series had a similar green tint display issue. It was later fixed with iOS 13.6.1.
According to various reports, the problems trigger when the brightness dips below 90 percent or under certain conditions. Screen flickering issue triggers primarily when watching videos or media with black bars on the sides. Apparently, iOS 14.1, iOS 14.2, and iOS 14.3 beta are said to be affected by this issue. Users will have to wait for some time to get closure on the iPhone 12 green tint issue and screen flickering issue.
The Cupertino-based giant has released a new iterative upgrade i.e. iOS 14.2.1 which is limited to iPhone 12 family. It fixes issues regarding MMS messages. The issue causing lock screen to become unresponsive and the sound quality issues with Made for iPhone hearing devices among others.
