Tips to Prevent iPhone X Burn-in Issue

Wish to avoid burn-in issues of OLED screen on your iPhone X? Check out these five essential tips.

iPhone X Super Retina display is powered by organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology. Super Retina has packed in some more advancements that make it a cut above traditional OLED displays; resulting in the great viewing experience. As they say, “Everything has two sides: positive and negative.” OLED technology has some downsides as well. And one of them is the burn-in issue. But with little care, you can prevent burn-in issues on your iPhone X.

If you look at an OLED display off-angle, you will find minor shifts in color and hue. When used extensively, OLED display tends to show minor visual changes that include burn-in or image persistence. When it is burn-in, you will see a faint remnant of an image even after a new photo appears on the screen. It happens when you display a high contrast photo for a long period.
