It has only been a couple of days since Apple started shipping iPhone 5 to millions of customers around the world. Currently this latest smartphone is available in only a select number of countries. Apple has said it plans to release iPhone 5 in over 100 countries by the end of December. While there is an amazing consumer interest in the latest iPhone, some users are complaining about an iPhone 5 yellow screen issue. If you’ve followed up on previous Apple product launches, you’ll now that such occurrences have actually become quite the norm after Apple begins shipping a new iOS device.
The iPhone 5 comes after months of anxiously waiting for a new Apple smartphone to drop. This time around though the rumor mill gave us quite a clear idea of what to expect. Many iPhone 5 mockups made it online and they did have a striking resemblance to the final version. Moreover we had already received credible information about some of the hardware specifications of iPhone 5. Regardless of all the information leaks, Apple seems to have achieved what it set out to do with iPhone 5, as pre-orders of this smartphone were sold out in record time.
Whenever a new Apple product is released, I for one stay away from the initial production stock. Maybe its just me being overly paranoid but history dictates that the initial stock of iOS devices have often had the yellow tint issue. This issue was present when Apple released iPad 2 as well as when it released iPhone 4S last year. The exact same issue persisted when Apple released iPhone 3G more than three years ago.
If you too are facing iPhone 5 yellow screen issue, there’s actually nothing to be worried about. This issue is quite common in the initial production batch. The reason for this issue is quite simple. The glue which holds the display and the body of iPhone 5 together hasn’t dried properly, and it is due to this very reason why a yellow tint is being given off. Don’t think its a display related issue. Give it a couple of weeks and when the glue has finally dried the way its supposed to, you will no longer face iPhone 5 yellow screen issue.
On the contrary, if the issue does persist, you can take your iPhone 5 to the nearest Apple Store and claim a replacement of your unit under warranty. Apple will happily swap your yellow screen tint giving iPhone 5 for a fresh unit.
