in the Apple support forumin the MacRumor’s forum and also up Reddit Over the past few days, there have been reports of iPhones with unsightly lines on their AMOLED displays. These do not occur during regular use, but mainly when the display is woken up from standby mode after it has automatically dimmed itself to save power, or when the iPhone is switched on.
Apparently, the error mainly affects the iPhone 14 Pro (approx. 1,299 euros on Amazon) and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. This artifact manifests itself as yellow or green lines, with the number and position of the lines varying. When the iPhone is used, these lines disappear after a few seconds, indicating that this is not a hardware problem, but rather a software glitch. This corresponds to the information from Apple, because when asked by concerned users, Apple Support stated that this was not a hardware defect, but a bug in iOS 16.
Apple has assured at least one Reddit user over the phone that the company is already working on a solution to this problem, but so far there are no details on when Apple will release an update that will fix this bug. Until then, there are a few workarounds that seem to only work on some iPhones, including disabling the always-on display and resetting the iPhone to factory settings.
