iPhone 4 Yellow Screen To Go Away With Use?

 In News

iphone 4 discoloration

As was pointed out in an earlier article, reports from iPhone 4 users are coming in with complaints of discoloration in the bottom corners of the screen. The effected iPhone screen’s corners are reported to have a warm yellowish tint.

Someone claiming to know why users are finding issues with the iPhones Retina Display posted the following on the AppleInsider forum:

Apple is using a bonding agent called Organofunctional Silane Z-6011 to bond the layers of glass. Apparently, Apple (or more likely Foxconn) is shipping these products so quickly that the evaporation process is not complete. However, after one or two days of use, especially with the screen on, will complete the evaporation process and the yellow “blotches” will disappear. How do I know? I was involved in pitching Z-6011 to Apple.

If this user is right, those affected by this issue should see improvement within a day or two of use.

Are you experiencing this issue with your iPhone 4? If you have, have you noticed any improvement? Who’s to be blamed, Foxconn, Apple, or nobody at all? Share your thoughts with us!

    I have a Belkin case so my hands don't actually come into contact with the antenna. No reception issues.

    I recieved my iphone 4 on the 23rd at 11:00 AM and noticed the yellow tint across the bottom of my screen which was quite noticable. After using the device for the last day and a half, the yellow tint has now gone away. Thank goodness!
