Are there lines or spots in your iPhone screen? We understand you might think this is quite strange and not how it should be. You are correct and in this blog we will explain you what the stripes and/or spots mean. With that in mind we will take a look at the following issues: 

  • Green lines on the screen of your iPhone X, XS or 11 pro
  • White or gray lines in the screen of your iPhone 
  • Black spots on your screen

Green lines on the screen of your iPhone X, XS, 11 pro

When iPhones that have OLED screens – iPhone X, XS, 11 Pro – are dropped on the floor, the part that makes sure the screen works can get damaged. You can tell this happend when a green vertical line appears on your screen after you dropped the phone. This means your phone is not able to send the data that it’s supposed to show to the screen anymore. And is therefore showing a green line instead. 

White or grey lines in your iPhone screen

Sometimes it happens that white or grey vertical stripes appear on your phone screen. These lines usually go together with your touch screen not working correctly. This defect is caused by a short circuit in the screen. The white lines only appear on iPhones (5s, SE, 6, 6s, 7, 8) that have an LCD screen. LCD is the technique that is used to show the content on your phone’s screen.

Black spots on your screen

When your screen has cracked, it is extremely vulnerable. A result of this vulnerability can be that the OLED, the part that makes the screen whole, also gets damaged. Causing black and/or blue and purple spots to show on the screen. If an individual pixel has been damaged, it will stay turned off and appear black. Once more pixels get damaged the black spots with spread over the screen like an oil stain.
