Why Is My iPhone Screen Black And White?


How do I fix a black and white iPhone screen?
- Asked by Evelyn N. June 8th, 2016


There are two areas to check for disabling a black and white (grayscale) screen on your iOS device. First open the Settings app and go to General > Accessibility. Make sure Grayscale is toggled to the Off position.

Alternatively, the Grayscale Zoom Filter might be enabled on your device. To check, double-tap on the screen using three fingers. That should exit zoom mode and return the color to your screen. You can disable the Grayscale Zoom Filter by going to Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom > Zoom Filter and then select None.
