How To Fix Color Disappeared from my iPhone

The Color Disappeared on your iPhone and How to Fix It!

The iPhone has so many settings that are great, but sometimes something goes awry and you have no idea how you caused it or how to even fix the problem.  Losing the color on your iPhone when it goes to grayscale screen is actually a really easy fix to get it back.

Solution #1 (Feeling Lucky?): First, try triple-clicking the home button (push it three times very fast).  For some of you, this will fix the issue right away.  This happens because you have “Grayscale chosen as an Accessibility shortcut.

Solution #2: Watch the Video.  Converting your iPhone to Grayscale may improve battery life.

Let us know if this worked in the comments below.

    This didn’t restore color to my iPhone. It went to gray scale after installing the update on iOS10.2.1.

    I’ve no clue what to do to fix it. There wasn’t any problem until after the restart aftet installing iOS10.2.1

    Thanks for the ‘Greyscale’ suggestion! My iPhone 8S is a tad different; Greyscale is found listed under the ZOOM option. Uptick the check mark showing on the Greyscale setting, and immediately colors should be back! (Once you figure out where it’s hiding, you’re in business!)
    Thanks again!😊
