Hello! I filmed footage on my new iPhone 12 today. Airdropped it to my mac from my iPhone - the color looks the same as it did on my phone in QuickTime. I import the footage into Premiere Pro and all of a sudden it's super washed out. How can I stop premiere from doing this? or how can I color correct in premiere so it looks at least kind of like the footage originally did?

The screenshot on the left is the original footage and the screenshot on the right is the footage in Premiere Pro.

try exporting it as the same format as it was originally from premiere and see how it looks on your mac.  If it looks the way it did originally, you've got what you started with.   Premiere didn't ruin anything, it just displayed it differently.    The way different devices and programs display color is a very complicated subject...  There are professional broadcast standards which are constantly evolving and apple may or may not be choosing to obey them.

I've same issue. But it's not helped me what you explained here. When I play my video on quick time it looks natural but when import it on premire timeline then diffent luminanc. Even when export from premire the same (different color/luminance). I've tested both video to upload to youtube and play diffrent devices. Youtube keeps my original video color/luminance but premire changed it without using any effects. 
So, I belive there is any option which applying automatically to each of my video while imporitng in to timeline. I may have to change someting in my preferences. Please help

Computers are dumb, but it probably has to do with how Premiere is handling the Color Management.

 

Try this:

- Find the clip in the project tab and right click on it -> Modify -> Interpret Footage

- At the bottom under Color Management click "Color Space Override" and select Rec. 709

 

Hopefully that fixes it.

 

I've attached screengrabs that fixed that same problem on my computer.

 

I think new phones are shooting with a wider color space, probably Rec. 2100 HLG, which is just too many colors for Premiere's little brain to handle.  Rec 709 is the tried and true color space that has been around for a long time and is still compatible with almost everything.
