A SMALL number of iPhone X owners have claimed that their shiny new devices are exhibiting a green vertical line on the right side of the display.
Although the problem doesn’t appear to be widespread, complaints about the alleged issued have appeared on Twitter and Apple’s own support forums, the New York Post reports.

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.
The Apple Support twitter account responded to the tweet promptly and we assume that the issue is being looked into as we speak.
One person encountering the problem had a vertical green line appear on the left side of his iPhone X display instead of the right.
You can see some of the affected phones in the tweets below.

So does this mean that it’s time to start talking about Linegate or Greengate?
Let’s hope not.
The issue only appears to be impacting a small group of iPhone X users, which is why threads on the issue on Reddit and Apple support pages are relatively small.

Regardless, the last thing anyone wants to experience after forking out more at least £999 for a new phone is a faulty device that requires a full-on replacement.
