After the successful start of iPhone X shipments, Apple has released a support page to detail all the major visual changes of its OLED screen technology that it calls Super Retina.
Including some information about common OLED concerns like burn-in and the color shift at some viewing angles.
The Cupertino giant has released a ‘guided tour’ video to explain all the new features of the current iPhone model, something that can help iPhone users make sense of all the new gestures on Home Button-less smartphone.
The support page, that has been created amid some problems emerged on the Pixel 2 XL, shows that Apple’s exclusive Super Retina technology conquers the existing challenges of typical OLED displays by enabling high brightness and wide color support together with an enhanced color accuracy. However, the screen panel still tends to get burn-in.
A long-term use of the OLED screen is also acknowledged to point out some minor visual changes. “With extended long-term use, OLED displays can also show slight visual changes.
This is also expected behavior and can include ‘image persistent’ or ‘burn-in,’ where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen,” the company describes on the support page.
The changes are claimed to happen in more extreme cases such as when the same high contrast image is constantly displayed for long durations.
“We’ve engineered the Super Retina display to be the best in the industry in reducing the effects of OLED ‘burn-in’,” the company adds. Finally, the company also notes that users of the iPhone X may notice slight shifts in color or hue when viewing the OLED screen “off-angle”.
To minimise the effects of long-term use and help users with an extended viewing life of their iPhone X units, Apple has recommended users to update their devices and use auto-brightness settings promptly.
The screen is also recommended to be turned off when not in use, users are also recommended to avoid displaying static images at maximum brightness for an extended period of time.
Besides the support page, Apple has brought an in-depth video preview. The video details all the major features of the iPhone X, highlighting its competitive features.
“iPhone X has a ton of amazing new features like Face ID, Animoji, and Portrait Lighting and new gestures you can use to get around,”
the company narrates in the tour video.
The over four-minute-long video lists the new gestures that are on the iPhone X to fill in the lack of a Home Button. It shows how quickly Face ID uses the TrueDepth camera system on the new iPhone to unlock the screen – without requiring Touch ID.
If gestures or Face ID aren’t something you’d like to learn, the tour video tells you how to allow Siri with the side button on the iPhone X.
It also showcases the best you can get from Animojis. Furthermore, the video will be your guide if you want to learn the upgraded Portrait mode on the latest iPhone model.
You will find new settings to change Portrait Lighting to improve your shots.
Apple’s attempt at describing more about the iPhone X is not just appeared to help its users understand the best of their new investment but also to conquer the occurrence of any mass-level complaints.
Companies like Google and Samsung have often been surfaced with such issues.
