iPhone 13 Pink Screen Bug Reported By Users – What Is Apple Doing About It

While the iPhone 13 ranks high on our best phones list, that doesn’t mean Apple’s flagship device isn’t without issues. One of those issues appears to be a wandering pink screen bug, which leaves users with a magenta-colored screen.

This news comes from 9to5Mac, which, based on reports from Apple discussion forums, Reddit and the Chinese social networking site Weibo (via my drivers), claims that some iPhone 13 screens will flash pink. In most cases, a simple phone restart fixes this problem. But for a select few, the pink screen remains permanent. According to 9to5Mac, some customers were able to replace their iPhone 13s.

Often the pink screen is followed by a phone crash. When the iPhone 13 turns back on, it usually continues to work normally.

Interestingly, it seems that this issue is more prevalent for Chinese iPhone 13 buyers. According to My Drivers, Apple made a statement on Weibo saying, “We did not notice any relevant hardware issues on the devices because this situation [pink screen] It occurs when the system is blocked.

It’s not the clearest talk about how to figure things out, but My Drivers said that Apple advises users to back up their data and install the latest firmware update.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple has yet to acknowledge a pink screen fix in iOS 15.3 RC.

Scrolling down to the comments section on the 9to5Mac post, some users have reported pink screen cases, but nothing that has resulted in an Apple replacement. One user wrote: “Happened to my iPhone 13 Pro once when taking a photo the screen turned pink for a second and the iPhone rebooted. I figured it was just a weird software glitch.” Fortunately, it hasn’t happened to that user since.

Another user named Aditya Gupta said that “it happens with Apple Notes on my iPad when I open it from the corner”, but did not provide any further details. If true, this suggests that it is a problem that is not limited to the iPhone 13s.

At the moment, the issue seems too rare for Apple to issue a wide-area fix. But if more of these types of issues arise, further investigation by Apple will be necessary. At the moment, Apple supplies iPhone 13 OLED displays from LG, Samsung, and BOE from China. It will take more research work to find out that this pink screen issue is limited to all OLED manufacturers, or just one.
