    There is this green tinted border of about 2mm that has appeared on all side of the display. Most obvious when view on a white background, which in iOS 7, is pretty much most default apps. I just went to applied a new glass screen protector for my iPhone 5 and the guy noticed that as well. According to him, he has seen this on a bunch of other iPhones as well, but mostly aren't as obvious as the one on mine.

    Anyway, just curious whether anyone else has the same thing happen to their iPhone's display?

    I've seen it before but never experienced it on my own devices

    Might have to invest in a replacement screen as this can't be fixed

    Good luck

    I am pretty sure that they all have that problem. Every iPhone 5 I've seen that was more than 6 months old is haven this issue, and I am sure it will get worse over time. I am very surprised that so very few people are reporting those issues, but then again... Most people are not detail oriented


    I am wondering if the iPhone 4 have had the same problem or the 5s

    Ha. I just now noticed it on mine after reading this post. Interesting. I'm not too concerned since I'm selling the phone and upgrading soon, anyway. But that does suck for those that got their 5s later or plan on keeping them for a while.

    To be fair it's not a huge deal, and since then I've seen it on a bunch of other older iPhones as well. Some are barely noticeable, and some are super obvious. But on the bright side they don't really affect the function of the display. More a minor annoyance than anything else. :/
