iPhone 14 Pro Users are Facing Flashing Horizontal Lines Issue
iOS 16 is notorious for bugs, and there has recently been an influx of reports that describe display problems with several iPhones after software updates. It’s unclear whether the updates cause problems or whether the display panel is from a batch with poor quality control. This time, the iPhone 14 Pro seems to be affected.
There’s a strong possibility that these problems are a combination of software and hardware. If developers push updates without adequate testing, the updates are bound to be buggy.
Updates might alter some voltage values and change the display’s colour calibration. If the panel isn’t a good quality one, it’s getting affected by several problems post-OTA updates.
Either that or the OLED panels are beginning to reveal their flaws. There are various display problems, but common ones include green lines, green and grey tint, off-axis rainbowing, flash and flicker at low brightness, etc. In rare cases, the entire screen only displays one colour.
Some iPhone 14 Pro units have an annoying display issue
Some iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max users on Reddit, Twitter, and Apple Support forums have been reporting problems with flashing horizontal lines on their phones after a restart, with no good reason as to why it happened. There seems to be no easy way to fix this either.
