    The thing has respringed about 8 times in the past couple of minutes. I’m not sure what’s going on but it won’t even stay in long enough for me to do anything. Is anyone else having issues?

    I think it’s dying🤣 It just did another respring, went to static, then the Apple logo turned a few colors.

    Turn it off for an hour and turn it back on. Who knows. That may help.
    If you don’t have patience, try putting it in DFU Mode

    It wouldn’t even let me turn it on or off. I put it in DFU mode & called Apple support. The rep said it’s a defect & they’ll swap it out for me.

    Just for fun..here are all the lovely pics🤣

    I’m glad Apple is replacing it.
    Me too!!! One of the reasons I stick with an iPhone. Nothing like this has ever happened, but I can’t imagine what I would have to go through if I was dealing with another company.

    Maybe it wants to be an Xr?
    That’s possible, but it’s not happening🤣🤣 I will carry no phone that is larger than my X.

    Wasn’t there a recall/problem with early 8/8+ screens that Apple swapped some phones for?

    I don’t remember but there may have been. This, however, is more than a screen problem. While the rep was doing some digging we both noticed my location stopped working at 6:16pm EDT yesterday. Not sure why but it did. It also won’t even restore through iTunes.

    The static initially looked like a ribbon failure (old laptop hinge ribbons failed like that) but with a ribbon failure it should at least still boot up and load the OS just wouldn’t necessarily be responsive to touch or anything.

    Oh wow!!! That's awful, but I'm glad they are replacing it. Are they sending it to you, or are you going to the Apple Store?

    Me too! I work across the street from an Apple Store, so I’m going to take it tomorrow. I worked from home today & just didn’t feel like leaving the house lol.

    Looks like a failure in the graphics hardware. I’ve seen video cards in PCs do weird things like that when they fail.

    Oh, what a wrong place to work to try to save money.
    Halloween will be over soon and the alien will be out.
    Very happy for you that Apple replace your phone. One thing Apple do good (sometimes)
