Your iPhone X isn’t the only one with a green line imprinted on the display at all times.
Apple’s latest flagship appears to have a display-related defect for a small-yet-rising number of units. Multiple owners of the iPhone X have shared online that their devices, which they paid more than $1,000 for, are showing a bright green line along the left or right edge of the display.
The company declined to comment on the situation when contacted by MacRumors.
If you have an affected unit, Apple will likely replace it for free. Customers who were greeted by the green line and reached out to the company have shared their experiences. Apple is exchanging affected units for new ones, and they’re also collecting data from every returned iPhone X . So, while not commenting on what’s happening, the company is investigating the cause of the green line.
This problem isn’t anywhere close to what Google’s still experiencing with the Pixel 2 XL, though. It’s just a matter of people getting unlucky receiving a botched unit. The Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, has a display full of hardware-related and software-related issues. While Samsung made the OLED display for the iPhone, LG is behind the Pixel 2 XL’s.
The iPhone X’s green line also isn’t unique to itself. Samsung’s Galaxy S7 from 2016 faced the same problem for a limited number of units.
