    Help guys, my iPhone 5C's warranty is ending in a month.

    When showing a white background, there's green tint at all four sides of the screen. It gets obvious when looking sideways.

    This iPhone has never been dropped. 10/10 condition. No dents too.

    Do you think Apple will replace it under warranty :(

    Thanks a lot guys..

    It really depends on how green. It would be up to the Geek to see if you got a refurb to replace it or not!

    Had this on my 5 and 5s and on both occasions they have been swopped it out in store. I think it's pretty common and to be fair, it shouldn't happen.

    I can't see why it wouldn't be covered :) Don't worry! Just pop into an Apple Store and see what they say.

    Took it to an Apple Store but they ain't gonna do a 1 to 1 exchange. :( they are taking it in and replacing it with a new screen. Meanwhile they loaned me a yellow iPhone 5C while waiting for my iPhone to be fixed ( 5 working days according to them)

    5 working days? I've seen stores do this stuff in an hour. Quite odd.

    Yeah, a friend just had her 5C display fixed in 45 min just last week. They probably didn't have the part in stock and that's why they are quoting you 5 days.
