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

"We are aware of instances where the iPhone X screen will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment". Some users have complained that their iPhone X's display becomes unresponsive in cold temperatures, while another subset of users are complaining that their iPhone X display starts to show a green on the display after a period of use. Following that, new reports have emerged where some users are seeing a green line vertically across the display, while others are facing a crackling or buzzing sound from the phone's earpiece speaker.

A so-called "green line of death" has been appearing on the screens of several iPhone X devices, owners of the eye-wateringly expensive new Apple device are reporting.

Apple has responded in a statement to The Loop.

Some social media users complained that the iPhone X's screen would become unresponsive or inaccurate in the cold unless they locked and unlocked the phone.

The line, which does not go away once it manifests itself, even after a full reboot, has been reported as appearing close to the edges of the screen. One user says the issue is so bad for him that the cracking occurs even around 50 percent volume. The latest issue, according to reports on Twitter, Reddit, and 9to5Mac's comment section, appears to be related to crackling and buzzing coming from the earpiece speaker...

The weather in the New York City area where I live hasn't gotten cold enough yet for me to notice the problem on my X but with temperatures expected to drop this weekend I'll see if I too experience any issues. "This will be addressed in an upcoming software update", said Apple.

Several iPhone X users took to Twitter to vent their frustration. Let us know if you have experienced the issue with your phone.
