Does it seem like there is something wrong with the display of your iPhone, even though you haven’t dropped the device, and there doesn’t seem to be any physical damage to the screen or the rest of the phone?
It’s possible that Night Shift mode is currently enabled on your iPhone.
Night Shift mode is meant to automatically switch your display to warmer color temperatures, which might help you to sleep better at night.

It’s easier on the eyes, but you might find that you don’t like it or, if you didn’t enable it in the first place, you may be looking for a way to turn it off.
The steps below will show you where to find the setting so that you can adjust it to suit your preferences.
