Some users of the new iPhone X have been encountering what could be a hardware-related glitch with the OLED.

A number of users haver reported green lines along the left or right side of the OLED display, according to various accounts on social media.

The lines appear to be developing after use, in at least one case just the space of a day. Complaints have arisen on Reddit, Twitter, Apple’s support forums and elsewhere.


The issue seems to persist even after restarting or restoring the handset and seems to be independent of the iPhone X’s configuration or the region where it was bought.

Apple is reportedly replacing affected units for free and it’s thought that the company is collecting data for engineers with the hope of diagnosing the issue.

A similar glitch had been reported for Samsung’s Galaxy S7 handset. Samsung is thought to be the lone OLED supplier for the iPhone X, as it’s presently the only company with enough manufacturing capacity to meet Apple demands.

If you’ve seen this issue on your end or have any thoughts on the matter, please let us know what you think in the comments.
