How to avoid losing the True Tone feature when replacing the display on an iPhone? This simple solution will help

Replacing the display on an iPhone is one of the most common service interventions. But did you know that when you replace the original display with a new one, you may lose some valuable features? For example, True Tone. Fortunately, there's a relatively easy way to avoid this problem.

Modern smartphone displays use smart controls that automatically adjust colours, contrasts, brightness or other features to suit the current conditions. These include advanced algorithms developed to suit the device.
If the display on your iPhone is broken, you may decide to replace it with a non-original one. This often has the same quality as the original, but you can buy it for a significantly lower price. However, once it's fitted, you may notice that the displays colours are a little different than the original display. In addition, in some cases, you may also lose some functionality. For example, automatically changing the brightness or turning off the screen when you're on the phone, when you bring the smartphone close to your ear.

Why do you lose some features when you replace the display?

The reason is simple - the new display simply doesn't have all the algorithms programmed into the driver. At first glance it will work normally, but when you compare it with the original, you can see the difference in colour. This is not due to the hardware, but to the software.

Remember: On iPhone smartphones, the reason the display is worse is because the new display doesn't have True Tone programmed from the factory. This performs a rather important role.

True Tone and High Quality Imaging

How well we see individual colours is largely influenced by the lighting conditions outside. In particular, shades of white are essential. If your phone's display has only one universal colour, contrast and brightness setting, it won't work that well in all conditions. That's why Apple has developed the unique True Tone feature, which is available on smartphones such as iPhone.
True Tone uses data from multiple sensors that sense the lighting conditions you're in. It then adjusts a number of parameters - display brightness, contrast and white balance - based on the data received. To put it simple, it adapts the display to the current lighting conditions to make it as natural as possible for the eyes. So you can see the colours accurately at all times. It doesn't matter whether you're in direct sunlight or in a dark room.

True Tone function is preserved thanks to DLZ WIN programmers

In order to preserve the True Tone feature when you replace the display on your iPhone, you need to move the original data from the original screen to the new one. How to do this? A handy device from the manufacturer DLZ WIN will help you.

How do DLZ WIN programmers work? 

In our e-shop you will find two types of programmers. DLZ WIN - DL R100 is designed for different iPhone model series, from 8g to 12 Pro Max. The more advanced version, the DLZ WIN - DL R100P allows programming of the True Tone function also for original displays and for the iPhone 13 series. 
The advantage of these programmers is their ease of use. You don't have to download any apps or search for complicated procedures. Simply connect the programmer to the display and the configuration itself is quick and smooth. In addition to setting up True Tone, you can also use the DLZ WIN programmers for other purposes. For example, reading and modifying data regarding the battery. These are thus multifunctional devices that are worth having in your equipment. Especially if you are servicing Apple
