Troubleshooting why your iPhone screen is black and white
This article will guide you through the possible solutions when your iPhone screen turns black and white.
The cause of an iPhone screen turning black and white
The most common cause of an iPhone screen turning black and white is changing iPhone software settings. iPhone supports several ways to make the screen black and white in its accessibility settings. These are useful for people who have trouble seeing (or can’t see) all or any color or have difficulty with low-contrast images.
This article will help you fix an iPhone screen that turns black and white. This issue is different from the iPhone white screen of death, an issue that will cause the entire screen to turn white.
An iPhone screen may turn black and white due to a hardware issue. A problem with the screen or the connection between the screen and the motherboard can cause this problem. However, it is rare, so the problem most likely lies with the iPhone’s settings.
How to fix iPhone screen turned black and white
The cause of an iPhone screen going black and white is most likely a software glitch, so most solutions involve changing settings in the iPhone’s Settings app. The steps below apply to all iPhone models with a current version of iOS.
Touch your iPhone lock screen button three times in quick succession. If you have an iPhone with a Home button, press it three times instead. This action enables the iPhone accessibility shortcut if you set it up.
You can set this shortcut to switch an iPhone to grayscale mode, which may cause your problem.
Open your iPhone Screen size and text setting to disable the color filter if it is enabled.
Color filters are an accessibility feature of iPhone. The grayscale filter turns the iPhone screen black and white, which is a common cause of this problem.
Open your iPhone zoom setting to disable zoom if enabled.
The iPhone Zoom setting has a grayscale color filter located below zoom filter in the Zoom Settings menu. This filter will change the iPhone screen to black and white when the Zoom feature is enabled.
In this case, Zoom does not refer to the video service called Zoom. Zoom is a feature in the iOS accessibility settings: Settings > Accessibility > zoom.
Reset all settings on your iPhone to restore all settings to their default values.
It will disable any iOS feature on your iPhone that is responsible for turning your iPhone screen black and white.
However, this will also reset all other settings, so it’s a last resort.
Although this resets all the settings on your iPhone, it does not delete its content.
The above steps will fix an iPhone screen that turns black and white due to a software setting issue.
It should be noted that third-party iPhone apps can’t turn an iPhone’s screen black and white, so you don’t have to worry about an app causing the problem. This would only be possible on a jailbroken iPhone.
If the above steps fail, you may have a hardware issue with your display or motherboard. Contact Apple to repair iPhone.
