    Hello! My iPhone 5 was dirty and so I used a slightly wet wipe to give it a clean. I did it before and nothing ever happened.

    Now something really strange did! In the top left corner of the display, there is a brighter triangle, with the 90 degrees angle in the corner, and the upper late across the signal bars. It's a lot noticeable if I change viewing angle or rotate the phone a bit.

    Perpendicularly you don't notice it if you don't see that exact spot. I tried to turn off and on my device and it didn't disappear. I think it is an hardware problem.

    But it's really strange! My iPhone didn't even have problems when I forgot it under the rain!!!

    Do I need apple support to fix it? How much will they make me pay? Not in warranty anymore!!!

    Thanks a lot guys

    Strange indeed. And you say this happened right after cleaning it.

    Your main problem is that you phone is out of warranty. You could take it to the Apple store and be very polite and they might replace or fix your phone. Just depends on how lucky you are as they are not obligated. If not you can find out how much it would cost to fix it.

    Sorry.

    I understand... I have an information that may be useful. My standby button is broken. And apple will fix it for free, since they recognized this problem on some iPhones 5. Would they replace the phone entirely in this process or only the button?

    They will test everything on your phone. If it passes the test they will ship it to repair center to fix the button and give you loaner. Keep the loaner if you like it .problem solved

    Give it a few days to dry out. It may fix itself.

    Maybe you are right, today seems a little bit better. But still there. I hope it will fix itself. Will I have to change the LCD display if not?
