Apple fixes iPhone green tint screen issue with iOS 13.6.1

Apple doesn't go into much detail as to what caused the green tint to occur, but the 13.6.1 release notes describe it as, "Fixes a thermal management issue that caused some displays to exhibit a green tint".

One of the most common problems that Apple users have is the device's auto-delete function.

Additionally, an issue that prevented unneeded system data files from being automatically deleted when storage got low has been addressed, which should be especially useful for owners of older iPhones and iPads with not a lot of storage space available to begin with. Some features however are not available in other regions. It was largely noticed by iPhone 11 users - mostly when using Night Shift or while in a dark room.


An unusual green tint issue is a common problem on smartphones, including iPhones. These are smaller updates focused on fixing bugs, like one thermal management issue that caused some displays to get a green tint.

The software updates Wednesday include iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1, as well as a supplemental update to macOS Catalina 10.15.6.

The iOS 13.6.1 update comes just in a month after Apple released iOS 13.6 with a setting to enable automatic update downloads on a Wi-Fi network.


This update may not be the end of the latest patches that Apple will be releasing before this fall, since the iOS 14 is coming.

You can install iOS 13.6.1 or iPadOS 13.6.1 on your iPhone or iPad by navigating to System Preferences General - Software Update on your compatible iPhone or iPad.
