iPhone 5 flaws have been reported in the past. Now, users are reporting another flaw. A green glow on the handset’s display has been sighted on some units.
People were quite excited when Apple unveiled the iPhone 5. Apple sold out its pre-order stock on the first day the new iPhone went live. On the day it went on sale, Apple fans camp outside stores and queued for hours just to get their hands on the new kit. Unfortunately, their excitement soon turned into disappointment once the phone’s flaws started piling up.
First of all, the new Apple Maps, which replaced Google Maps, turned out to be a complete mess. Landmarks did not show up where they were supposed to be and places were misnamed. I you’ve gotten your hands on a black version of the iPhone 5, you must have noticed that it is more susceptible to bumps and scratches. When too much bright light enters the lens of the camera, a purple haze affects photos. Now, Pocketnow reports owners are complaining about a green glow on the display.
According to reports, the issue only happens after the handset wakes up from sleep, wherein a green mist emanates from the sides of the screen. Although it seems to be a minor problem, Apple quickly replaced the phones of customers who complained about the issue.
Here’s a video of the green glow.
The problem only seems to come out of the bottom of the iPhone 5’s display. It also disappears in seconds. However, this is a problem nonetheless and might cause bigger problems if ignored. Furthermore, people have spent a lot of money on these new phones, so we understand why a small problem such as this annoys them.
Although Apple has replaced the affected units, they have yet to explain what is causing the problem.
