Apple has explained how to avoid screen burn-in iPhone X

Apple iPhone X comes with a 5.8-inch OLED screen which is called as Super Retina display by Apple.

Apple clearly doesn't think burn-in is or will be an issue on the iPhone X. Users probably won't be able to claim warranty on the phenomenon as a result, but we'll have to wait and see whether it's a problem at all. This is the first time an iPhone is equipped with an OLED panel.

More details in the full support document linked below... For example, Apple notes that if you look at an OLED display off-angle, you might notice shifts in color and hue.

In a new support document, Apple says "you might notice slight shifts in color and hue", which is "normal behavior" for an OLED screen.

Seeing as how the iPhone X is the first iPhone to ever feature an OLED display, some of the nuances of OLED technology might be new to longtime iPhone owners.

This OLED screen was earlier used by Apple on Apple Watch and also on the touch bar on MacBook Pro but I must say that the display used in iPhone X is very awesome to use and gives an all new screen interface. Given below is a major disclaimer about Apple's iPhone X OLED screen. This is of course normal for an OLED display, and according to reports nowhere near as bad as with the Pixel 2 displays, which have been criticized heavily. We've engineered the Super Retina display to be the best in the industry in reducing the effects of OLED "burn-in". While it shows a different hue in new angles, the phone may also display an image even after a new image appears which is the sign of a burn-in problem.

Apple then lists ways to prolong the life of the display like updating iOS regularly, relying on auto-brightness, leaving the display off when it isn't in use and not letting static images dwell on the screen at maximum brightness for a long time. The company doesn't use OLED displays because it was owned by Samsung but the issue continued even on their retina display in older iPhone models.

The developers suggest that users can avoid leaving the same image on their iPhone X smartphones for long hours of time with high contrast setting.
