    Hi all, just upgraded to an iPhone 5 on 6.0.1 out of the box. Have since upgraded to 6.0.2. Occasionally I get this line across the screen about two fifths from the bottom, similar to the keyboard glitches that were around before, but a solid line all the way across. It can happen in any app or home screen, keyboard or no keyboard. The image below the line sometimes shakes at a very high rate producing a blur. It doesn't appear in home+sleep screen shots.

    Wondering if anyone has experienced this and if its likely to be a software issue like the keyboard glitch, or is this a faulty iPhone 5?

    Yeah factory reset doesn't do anything. What do you mean where is the image ? Anyway I found another thread, sorry. Searched a while and only found threads about the keyboard until after I posted this. Just bumped it if anyone interested.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. Have you managed to take an image of the problem?
