The iOS app of the popular open-source TV-tuning software Kodi has a red tint when running in an iPhone 4 or later version of iOS.
When I try to launch the app, a green tint appears.
The iPad’s default setting is to turn off the red color.
Kodi isn’t the only one affected.
Other iOS devices running iOS 7 or later appear to have a green color when running Kodi on an iPad.
This was a problem I ran into while watching a film called “The Mummy Returns.”
I noticed a noticeable difference in the iPad’s color when I turned on the film’s red tone.
In the scene in the film, a mummy crawls through a tomb.
When the mummy crawlers are close to the audience, they are shown in a red glow.
The scene also has a yellow-orange hue.
When a mummy reaches the audience’s feet, it appears blue-green, and the mummy’s head is a blue-white color.
After I discovered this, I tried a few different apps and found nothing.
So how did I get this problem?
A little trick.
If you’re on an older iPad, you can switch to the “default” mode for Kodi.
When you launch Kodi, you’ll see a menu with a green button to “Enable red tone.”
You can turn this setting off at any time.
The default setting isn’t as bright as it looks in the movie, but it’s still a great color.
