Some iPhone X displays have 'nasty green line' problems

The iPhone X has been Apple's best iPhone till date (and its most expensive one too), but it's not without shortcomings.

"I love everything about the iPhone X".

Apple issued the iOS 11.0.2 update in October that fixed cracking sounds in the iPhone 8 duo, but now the iPhone X has seemingly developed a similar issue.

However, according to Kuo, Apple is also planning to roll out edge-to-edge displays beyond the iPhone X next year. Because KGI Securities is already looking ahead to next year's lineup.

The one thing this report doesn't mention though is what Apple plans to do with the iPhone SE.

Apple's iPhone X was the first phone to break the £1,000 barrier - and so customers (rightly) have high expectations. "The iPhone X has a 5.8" screen, and the iPhone 8 has a 4.7" screen.

A second device will have a smaller 5.8-inch OLED while the third device has a 6.1-inch LCD. Leaving the 6.1 TFT-LCD as the "budget" version for the low/mid-range markets. Let us know below. Do you purchase now?

LAPD opens investigation after Terry Crews files police report alleging sexual assault

So there. Has this info made your smartphone buying decisions for this year easier, or are you going to hold out and see if these predictions come true?

According to several owners their shiny new devices are exhibiting a green vertical line on the right side of the display according to social media messages. And that drop sets new records for fix costs as well.

The well-connected Kuo, who has a better track record than most in these cases, reckons the phone will have a big 6.5-inch display with a pixel density of up to 500ppi (via TechCrunch). For example, the PPI will be considerably lower. Regardless of this, it remains unlikely that Apple will achieve supply-demand balance until 2018.

Luckily, it seems that Apple are replacing all faulty devices free of charge.

"We are aware of instances where the iPhone X screen will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment".

The line appears from nowhere on devices that had previously been working normally.
