iPhone 4 screen issue might evaporate by itself

iPhone 4 Screen Discoloration

The new iPhone 4 was the biggest release last week, however for some users this release has turned into a nightmare, it didn’t take long before users began to report issues with screen discoloration.

The first set of iPhones which have reached users have been found to have screens which are tinted yellow. Some users have reported that there are blotches of yellow screen discolorations in the bottom part of the screen.

According to reports, the discoloration might be due to the binding agent used to glue the screen onto the device, that didn’t have time to dry before shipping the product. Apparently, Apple (or more likely Foxconn) is shipping these products so quickly that the evaporation process is not complete, and therefore users are now experiencing these yellow blotches.

According to Apple, after a few days of use the evaporation process will be completed and the yellow ‘blotches’ will disappear. In other words, if you’ve been experiencing this issue, sit tight, perhaps it will evaporate itself.

Apple sells 1.5 Million iPhones during the first day!


A while ago we reported that Apple sold 600,000 pre-order iPhones, however now rumors are stating the actual number of sold iPhones during the first 24 hours could be as high as 1.5 million.

According to Oppenheimer analyst Yair Reiner you can calculate roughly how many iPhones Apple actually might have sold in the first day.

Here is how Reiner arrived at his estimate:

  • Apple said it received 600,000 U.S. pre-orders.
  • 100,000 iPhone 4s were at Apple Stores that hadn’t been reserved.
  • Best Buy had 50,000 units.
  • Multiply that amount by two to arrivate at international sales.
  • The survey also helped define who Apple’s real competitor is. Despite Research in Motion being the No. 2 smartphone company present on the market, if you ask most iPhone buyers they will tell you that the real competitors are the up-and-coming Android-based handsets from Google.
