Is your iPhone X freezing in cold weather?

13 November 2017

Several iPhone X users took to Twitter to complain about a pesky green line that appears along the right side of the screen and does not go away even after restarting the device.

Curiously, one person encountering the problem had a vertical green line appear on the left side of his iPhone X display instead of the right. Incidentally, the Apple Support twitter account responded to the tweet promptly and we can only assume that the issue is being looked into as we speak. Apple is yet to issue a fix for the issue. Users are reporting various issues with the screen including the fact that it becomes unresponsive in cold conditions. Users claim the so-called "crackling" or "buzzing" sounds from the device's earpiece speaker tend to occur at high or max volumes.

Again it's unclear what is causing the issue, but in numerous cases users booked a Genius Bar appointment and had their iPhone X replaced (which seems like the best option at this point). Another user found the crackling issue at around 50 per cent volume. However, in both cases, the iPhone X users reported that simply locking and unlocking the phone solves the issue.

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

"I've noticed that my iPhone X screen becomes very unresponsive as soon as I step outside".

Apple says it is aware of reports of the screen becoming temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment. After several seconds the screen will become fully responsive again.

This isn't the only controversy Apple has faced with the Samsung supplied iPhone X OLED display. It is also unclear as of now whether the issues faced are OLED-related or whether it is due to some other reason. You can be sure Apple are already looking into this, and coming up with a fix.
