Weird Display Problem For iPhone 14 Users Reported Widely; Apple Admits This Issue, Terms It Software Problem

Horizontal Lines Flashed Across iPhone Display

MacRumors report said “On one thread on Reddit, dozens of iPhone 14 Pro users are reporting that one or more green and yellow lines may flash across the screen before disappearing a few seconds later when the device is being turned on. According to those same users, Apple Support has informed them the issue is not a result of a hardware defect but is a bug in iOS 16”.

iOS 16 Updates

The report added that as per the users on Reddit, the Apple Support forums (1,2,3), and the MacRumors forum, the issue seems to have started following the iOS 16.2 update. Notably, there are some users that have reported that the problem is even occurring on older versions of iOS 16.

Though the exact details are not known yet, one user on Reddit claims an Apple engineer informed them over the phone that Apple is working on a software patch for the issue.

Currently, iOS 16.3 is being tested with developers and public beta testers, however the update is not expected to launch until early next year.

The latest version, iOS 16.2 includes several new features, including Apple Music Sing, Apple’s new Freeform app, and more.

As per the Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will cancel or postpone mass production for the planned 2024 iPhone SE 4.

Kuo said that he believes Apple will delay or scrap the device due to consistent lower than expected shipments of middle tier and lower-end smartphones like the iPhone SE 3.

Update: Apple Executives have informed that a software update is coming up, to resolve this issue. More details here.
