Apple iPhone 14 Pro Rendering: After some iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users experienced display issues last month, a new report has revealed that US-based tech giant Apple is investigating the problem of horizontal lines on the screen of the latest iPhone 14 Pro models.
The brand has confirmed that iPhone 14 Pro Max users may see yellow flashing horizontal lines on their display when the device is turned on. In a new memo, the iPhone maker said an iOS update will be released soon to address the issue, MacRumors reported.
Users of the iPhone 14 Pro model may “report that when they turn on or unlock their phone, they briefly see horizontal lines flashing across the screen,” the memo said. According to the report, iOS 16.3 is currently being tested with developers and members of the public beta program, but that update likely won’t be released for several weeks.
The tech giant is expected to release iOS 16.2.1, following the release of iOS 16.2 last month, to address the issue and other bugs experienced by users, the report said.
In related news, the US-based tech giant plans to become less dependent on third-party vendors like Samsung and LG for displays. Instead, the company plans to implement custom, in-house panels for its products such as the iPhone and the Apple Watch.
According to reports, Apple’s first step in this direction would be to use microLED on the Apple Watch Ultra by the end of 2024, but Apple is all set to expand the use of microLED displays beyond just the Apple Watch.
The company will integrate these advanced screens into the iPhone and other devices. While these displays may have been manufactured by a third-party supplier, they will be designed and developed by Apple in the coming days to meet their specific requirements.
