According to a MacRumors report, the green line problem did not go away even after the users tried to reboot the device. Frustrating iPhone X owners took to Twitter, Apple Support Communities, Facebook and Reddit to share photos of the issue. The flaw has even been dubbed the “green line of death”. “Apple also appears to be collecting data from the incidents so that its engineers can investigate the matter, as it routinely does with any potential hardware or software issues,” the publication notes.

Well, from what Apple’s support page suggests, 35 users claimed that they were experiencing the green line issue. According to TechCrunch, the issue might be caused by an electrical flaw that messes with the way the phone displays pixels. The report further compared the issue to last year’s Samsung Galaxy S7 that reportedly faced a similar pink line damage on the screen. DON’T MISS: Apple iPhone X first impressions: When you have to control your emotions
