Some iPhone X users report a mysterious green line appearing on their screens


A ‘green line of death’ has been reported by more than 25 iPhone X users who have owned their device for just a matter of days.

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

So far Apple hasn’t commented on the fault but some of those ‘in the know’ claim that it is down to an electrical fault, causing the green sub-pixels in the phones’ new diamond subpixel pattern to illuminate, according to TechCrunch.

According to MacRumors, the number of people affected seems to be increasing and those reporting the problem say that the phone has not been dropped or otherwise damaged.

‘So I was playing with my new phone and all of a sudden, this happened,’ said MacRumors forum member tmiles81.

‘It’s a really bright line going down the entire right side of the phone.’

A user on Twitter wrote: ‘Green line of death’, with a skull emoji.

It seems that the issue isn’t limited to just one version of the iPhone X. Both the 64GB and 256GB versions have been affected and this is the same for both Silver and Space Grey devices.

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

Although the iPhone X has been generally well received, this isn’t the only problem that the device has experienced since its launch.

We recently reported the rumour that the device was unresponsive in cold temperatures. This seemed to be a particular issue when the device was taken from a warm environment into a cold one.

The iPhone X will go on sale in Thailand on November 24th with prices starting from Bt 40,500.
