    First of all, yes I'm an *****. Second, I left my iPhone on an eye on my stove. I turned on said eye by accident and overheated my phone. It seems my otterbox took the brunt of it and my phone still works after cooling it down in the fridge. However, my screen looks wavy and orange from being heated. Can this be fixed with a replacement screen? Or am I in for it if I take it apart?

    Oh no!
    I'd recommend bringing it to the Apple Store. I'm sure they'll offer you a replacement for a certain price

    Yeah take it in. There's no telling what other damage has been done. Could be at risk even keeping it charging if unknown damage to the battery was done.

    Thanks, guys. That was my concern as well. Everything appears to be fine but I probably should go to Apple for this one.

    If there's enough heat to cause the screen to get wavy, there could be battery damage. Take it in and let Apple take a look at it.
