    Wondering if anyone can help me. I have a 6+, had it from launch day and I've noticed it's developed a light border around the screen. Particularly noticeable on darker colours. Any ideas/ suggestions?

    If your talking about the darker line around the edge of the display I've seen that on nearly every iphone.

    I find it to be common with alot of phones specifically after they had been subjected to minor bending either in the back pocket or having pushed the screen excessively over a period. Do the colours on the edge shift when you apply pressure or slightly twist the phone? Unless this is a wide spread issue or risky I doubt it'll be fixed or replaced out of warranty without being charged.

    How much is it to replace the entire unit?
    About £300?

    The OP has a 6 Plus, not a iPhone 5. The thread you cited refers to a pink Hue in the center of the screen on the iPhone 5, which specifically plagued the iPhone 5. The OP is referring to light border around the screen base or edges, which is spread out with a larger display. It's the same effect when you push to hard on a LCD display around the corners and the colors eventually dissipates.

    @andrew1995, I can't tell from your posted photo of the displayed border issue. Can you open up a blank white Safari screen and then post the picture of what your referring to. Perhaps it would be easier to see with the brightness up or down.

    Go to the Apple store to get it exchanged.

    The pink hue on the 5 appears to be a similar effect happening with the OP's 6plus, as Sunnsunnysingh was referring. A pic of a blank black screen might also help better for comparison to notice the effect as the OP claimed it is more noticeable in darker colors.

    OP, this seems to be a lamination issue caused in part by the adhesive/glue bonding the cover glass to the LCD.

    The iPhone 5 "Pink screen" was more centered on the screen, which was only prevalent on the 4 inch iPhone. There have been very few reports with that issue on the Plus models. Which is exactly why it could be caused by an action sitting on the iPhone or applying constant pressure where the Display isn't seated properly. I don't believe this is the same issue as the iPhone 5 was experiencing years ago. I saw plenty of those iPhones and the Pink screen was immediately noticeable in the middle of the screen. And by the pictures provided, It would be more helpful if the picture was white with the brightness up, it would definitely highlight the indicated issue.

    Being the display is showing around the border of the screen, not in the center. It's Not uncommon for the laminate or display to be Have pressure applied where the screen is showing the indication of the issue. And with the iPhone 5 pink screen issue, that was a major problem in the beginning when it launched. But since has been corrected over the course of the iPhone 5 and 5S.

    Then again, the darker lines going around the screen is also something that's very prevalent around the display,where the pink hues were much lighter in tone.

    Yes, agreed, there is a border being created around the phone, like with the iPhone 5. We are seeing a similar instance developing over time/ownership of the phone. This is a laminate issue.

    Laminate, yes, Time as you stated is subjective. I have serviced hundreds of these iPhones before (More specifically the iPhone 5). This is not the same issue with the iPhone 5 pink hot spot screens . This is likely from something from the adhesive separating from hot or cold temperatures or pressure related. Either way, it's serviceable and replaceable. And the pictures from the OP doesn't accurately depict the situation without having a more accurate display. It's much easier to see in person than a screen shot. Time doesn't necessarily accurately represent the issue, versus the actual iPhone environment and what it's subjected to by the owner, which seems to be more of the case here overall.

    In this case, the OP's problem developed over time. Yes, the cause is subjective as the laminate material can be affected to those factors. My pink-screen iPhone 5 developed over the time of 3.5 years, as well. The temperature being in a pocket, in the weather, pressure, aging of the laminate material - all subjective.

    We have a lot of subjective causes, indeed.

    I never mentioned the weather, Specifically it's subjected to hot/cold or force. Aside from that, my point is and was from the beginning, the iPhone 5 was plagued and mass effected across the board with the center pink screen, which didn't have to occur over a span of years. It could have occurred with in a weeks use. The display itself was defective out of the box, which either some verified immediately or other cases were minimal.

    The OP's situation is around the border, not so much where it was centered like the iPhone 5 screen. Almost all the iPhone 5's I observed in the past, the pink Hue started directly in the middle of the screen and eventually would spread or disperse . And not everybody who owned an iPhone 5, was able to identify this issue because of specific wallpaper or how they used their iPhone based on recognizing to begin with.

    Point is, these two issues used in comparison from the Pink screen and the OP's are completely two different issues. The iPhone 5 was an issue directly out of the box that likely was there to begin with and the OP's is likely having to do with torsional twisting or bending, which separates the display, causing the screen to construe the light emitted. Hence, the darker or lighter colors. That's the issue.

    And the screen shots need to be of a more bright white and black tone to indicate the issue with brightness turned up and down, showing all different lighting for the purpose of indicating the displays highlighted areas.

    Like with using the Spotter app that shows full screen colors of different varieties. Then adjust brightness. It'll probably show itself more readily that way right?

    That's a good point. I never thought of using a specific app for showing the issue with brightness. Sometimes, it's difficult to see specifically the screen issues off a screen shot unless you see it in person, because the other person viewing it may have their sceen settings varied where they can't fully see the issue properly. Perhaps the OP could try your suggestion to further highlight the affected area.

    I'd say not a chance in hell, but give it a try. Nothing we could say about it here actually means anything, take it to Apple Store.

    So weather can't affect temperatures hot and cold? Humidity? Air pressure...? o_O

    The issues for the iPhone 5 display out of the box may have been expedited some way, in the factory, or in storage (hot warehouse? Very cold shipping freight? - temperatures also attributed to weather and climate).

    A comparison of a shot in complete black background in addition to the white background would be helpful, however, the OP said the border is more noticeable in darker colors, so at least the former condition may be sufficient. Though both shots would be helpful.

    Then again, maybe the center is getting darker, leaving a normal border..... :rolleyes:
