Your iPhone sports a very handy feature that allows you to invert colors. You can enable this option to make the text easier to read by increasing the contrast between text, images, and the background. But your iPhone may sometimes invert colors on its own when you turn it on. Or the lock screen inverts the colors for a few seconds, but then quickly snaps back to normal. If you’re experiencing similar issues, follow the troubleshooting steps below.
How Do I Stop My iPhone From Inverting Colors?
Check Your Accessibility Settings
Navigate to Settings → General → Accessibility → Vision → Display Accommodations → Invert Colors. Turn off the option.
Then, go to Settings → Accessibility → Display & Text Size. Check if the Smart Invert option is on. If this is the case, turn it off, and restart your device.
Update Your Apps and OS
Outdated iOS versions could also cause this unusual glitch. The same is valid for outdated apps. Launch the App Store, tap your profile icon, and scroll to pending updates. Hit the Update All button to update all of your apps.
Make sure to check for updates and install the latest iOS version on your terminal. Go to Settings, tap General, and select Software Update.
Use a Case
While this workaround may seem a bit strange, some users confirmed that using a case fixed the issue. It doesn’t matter what kind of case you’re using. Turn off your iPhone, put on the case, turn the device back on and check the results.
Reset Network Settings
Navigate to Settings, select General, tap Network, and hit the Reset option. This action will reset your iPhone network settings to original defaults. In other words, all your network and VPN settings will be deleted. Your Wi-Fi connection is turned off and then back on, which means you’ll get disconnected from the Internet. Manually re-connect to your network, and check if your iPhone continues to invert colors.
If your iPhone randomly inverts colors when you turn it on, go to Accessibility Settings, disable Invert Colors and Smart Invert, and then restart your device. If the issue persists, install the latest app and iOS updates, and reset your network settings. Did you manage to fix this issue? Share your feedback in the comments below.
