One user tweeted, “If you’re thinking about an iPhone 12 Pro Max, go check out the display models first. Everyone I’ve seen has a ridiculous yellow tint. Then research the flickering below max brightness. Returned mine today. @Apple’s quality control must have taken this year off.” Another said, “I have compared my iPhone 12 mini to my iPhone X, both with max brightness and True Tone off, and the mini does seem yellow.”
