IPhone X screen can become unresponsive in cold weather

A vertical green line is reported to have appeared along the right side of the screen a few minutes after the device is turned on.

After user complaints that the iPhone X's screen becomes unresponsive in very cold weather, Apple has announced it's working on a software update to address the issue.

Apple has not officially commented on the issue, and any customers affected are encouraged to return their $999-plus device to the point of sale to have it replaced. It also looks like the issue is more persistent than the green line problem as one who got his faulty iPhone X unit replaced found the same issue in the new unit.

The iPhone 8 suffered from an earpiece crackling problem, but this seems to be different in that it relates to high volume sounds only. Luckily, Apple do offer great support, and if you are experiencing the green line issue, or the sound issues, you can more than likely head on over to an Apple store and get a replacement free-of-charge. Apple has acknowledged the issue and is working on a fix for it.

The service itself later shared the picture , saying: "Thanks for all the comments you've been sending through about this case". It has been shared thousands of times with people expressing their dismay at the person who left the note.


Just days after the launch of the iPhone X, problems are starting to emerge with Apple's latest handset.

According to one Twitter user, who first experienced the issue earlier this week, the green line is ever-present and does not go away even when the device is restarted. It's unclear at the moment whether or not this can be fixed with a firmware update, or if Apple will have to make some hardware changes on the iPhone X to prevent this happening with future devices.

Meanwhile, Apple is still dealing with the screen freezing issue that some users reported last week.

Several iPhone X users took to Twitter to vent their frustration. In a statement, Apple says they are aware of the issue and are now preparing a software update.
