Groen scherm op een iPhone oplossen

When your iPhone screen displays a green hue, it signals an issue with the display. The Green Screen problem is frequently observed on iPhone X, 12, and 13 models. This issue can arise from a temporary software glitch, hardware malfunction, or physical/water damage.

Here are some solutions that will resolve the Green Screen problem in most cases:


1. Restart the iPhone

One of the most common troubleshooting steps for various iPhone issues is to restart the device. Here are the steps to do so:

  • Open the iPhone Settings app.
  • Scroll down and tap on General.
  • Within the General settings menu, navigate to the bottom.
  • Tap on the Shut Down button located just below the Transfer or Reset iPhone option.


2. Force Restart the iPhone

When encountering issues with your iPhone, one of the initial and simplest measures to take is to turn off the device. Many common iOS bugs and glitches, such as sudden WiFi disconnections or delayed texting, can often be resolved by powering off your iPhone for a brief period.

For iPhone models up to 8:

  • Press and hold the Sleep/Wake or Side button for several seconds. Depending on the iPhone model, this button is located either on the top or the right side of your device.
  • Release the button when a power icon appears, prompting you to slide to power off the device.
  • Wait for approximately a minute while the progress wheel rotates, indicating that your iPhone is shutting down automatically.

For iPhone X and later models:

  • Press and release the Volume Up button, then the Volume Down button.
  • Press and hold the Side/Power button for a few seconds.
  • When the power off slider appears on the screen, slide it to the right to shut down the device.

After powering off your iPhone, allow it to cool down completely for at least 30 minutes before powering it back on.


3. Connect it to a charger or a computer

If force restarting doesn’t resolve the issue, try connecting your phone to either a charger or a Mac/PC. Leave it connected and unattended for 30 minutes or more.


4. Remove Recently Installed Apps

If you’ve recently installed an app and then encountered the iPhone green screen problem, it’s possible the app is causing the issue. In such cases, it’s recommended to delete the app. Here’s how to do it:

  • Swipe the screen from the right edge towards the middle.
  • This action will open the iOS App Library.
  • Locate the app you installed within any of the segments in the App Library.
  • Find the app icon.
  • Long press on the app icon.
  • Tap on “Delete App.”


5. Remove Recently Installed iOS Updates

If you’ve noticed the green screen problem immediately after updating your iPhone, you may want to remove the update and restart your device. Here’s how:

  • Start de Instellingen-app.
  • Navigate to General > iPhone Storage.
  • Find and tap on the installed iOS update, such as iOS 17.X.
  • Select the “Delete Update” option.


6. Adjust Display Settings

Customizing display options on your iPhone is a common practice to tailor it to your preferences. However, if you encounter the green screen issue, you may need to revert some of these customizations and make new adjustments. Here’s how:

  • Open iOS Settings and navigate to Display & Brightness.
  • Follow these steps:
    • Switch to Light mode if the device is currently in Dark mode, or vice versa.
    • Use the Brightness slider to adjust the brightness level.
    • Toggle off True Tone if it’s currently activated, or vice versa.
    • Disable the Night Shift setting as well.
  • After making these changes, restart the device and monitor it for a few hours to observe if the green lines, flickering, or solid green screen reappears.


7. Close Background Apps

Sometimes, app pages might become unresponsive on your iPhone display due to performance issues. If an app displays a solid green screen and becomes stuck on the display, it may appear as if your iPhone has a green screen issue.

To address this, close all open apps by following these steps:

  • Swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
  • Release your finger in the middle of the screen.
  • You should see a carousel of apps.
  • Swipe the app cards upwards to stop the apps from running in the background.


8. Update the iPhone

If you’re experiencing issues such as green tints, flickering, or solid green screens, it’s possible that you’ve been using an outdated version of iOS for an extended period. To address this, you should install the latest compatible iOS edition for your device. Here’s how:

  • Open de app Instellingen.
  • If you haven’t updated your phone for a while, you should see the “Software Update Available” option.
  • Tap on it.
  • Then, tap the “Update Now” button.


9. Reset All iPhone Settings

Resetting all iPhone settings can be an effective way to revert various iOS features to their factory defaults without losing your data. Here’s how to do it:

  • Open the iOS Settings app and navigate to General settings.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the General settings menu to find the “Transfer or Reset iPhone” option.
  • Tap on it.
  • Next, select the “Reset” option.
  • On the Reset screen, tap on “Reset All Settings.”
  • You’ll be prompted to enter your iPhone passcode to authorize the action.


10. Restore it using recovery mode

If the previous suggestions don’t work, you can place your iPhone in recovery mode and then update its software. Updating using this method will preserve all your data.

If updating through recovery mode still doesn’t resolve the problem, you can perform a restore on your iPhone. This action will delete all data on it and reinstall iOS. This can resolve the issue if it was caused by software bugs or glitches.
