Increasing the contrast on your iPhone will make the white appear brighter. An iPhone has an auto-adjust sensor that adjusts the screen's contrast according to how much light is in the room. If the room is dark, the screen will show less contrast, and if it is bright, it will show more. However, you may want to change this. Changing the contrast can help conserve battery life, as more contrast takes more battery power. Removing the automatic feature and changing the contrast only requires a few steps on an iPhone.
