According to the iOS 14.5 release notes, Apple has finally fixed an issue where there may be a faint glow on your iPhone’s display when the brightness is low.
Apple addresses a longstanding issue where the iPhone may have a dimly glowing effect at low brightness levels
IPhone users end up with a display problem that Apple keeps patching. This time, iPhone 12 users specifically have it noticed A faint glowing effect appears on the display when something completely black is displayed at low brightness. It’s visible if you look closely and can’t see it. It becomes more noticeable as you use dark mode more often.
Fortunately, with iOS 14.5, it seems like Apple has finally fixed this problem, and we can use our iPhones like mortals without having to worry about any glow showing up.
iOS & iPadOS 14.5 contains an optimization to reduce the occurrence of weak light that can occur with reduced brightness levels with a black background.
The surprising thing is that iPad users seem to be addressing the issue as well. In our tests, we didn’t come across anything similar on the iPad as we did on the iPhone. However, it’s good to know that this will be a general solution rather than something for a single device.
We expect to release the full and final versions of iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 tomorrow. If you haven’t already done so, your best bet is to prepare for the update now so that everything goes as smoothly as possible on the release date: How to Prepare Your iPhone and iPad for iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 Update
iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 have tons of new features, including one that lets you bypass face recognition easily when you’re wearing a mask and your Apple Watch is on your wrist. Additionally, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X controllers have been added so you can play with the best gaming controllers on your phone and tablet.
Who is looking forward to tomorrow?
