If you need to display images a bit longer, reduce the brightness of the screen. Simply, swipe down from the top right corner of the screen to access Control Center and then use the slider to adjust the brightness.

Use Attention Aware Features

The TrueDepth camera automatically dims the display when you are not looking at your screen. It can play a vital role in not just helping the battery to last a bit longer but also prevent this issue from taking place. Open Settings → Face ID & Passcode → turn on the switch next to Attention Aware Features.

Turn On True Tone Display

With the use of advanced multichannel sensors, True Tone display adjusts the color and intensity of your display to match the ambient light. As a result, images appear more natural on your device. To know more about this feature, jump over here.

Every good thing needs more care, and the same applies to the OLED display. With a bit of care, you can help it remain in top gear and continue to rev up your viewing experience.

Apple claims that its Super Retina display is by far the best in the industry in reducing the OLED burn-in. Having used the iPhone X series for long, I can second the company’s claim to a great degree.
