    Given the "Yellowgate/Brightgate" debate currently ongoing, I did a hard reset.

    Now much less inclined to believe this is a software issue. Display shouldn't do this every time surely...

    Oh dear.

    So it's back to normal now after the hard reset?

    Seems like a software issue of some kind.

    By "back to normal" you mean functional? Yes. Same old display tint/dimness though.

    Why do you think that's a software issue? That display suggests to me hardware fault, but maybe I'm wrong...

    Did you try going to Settings > General > Accesibilty > Display Accomodations > Color Filters then toggle on and adjust to your preference?

    Not exactly the same but looks all screwed up then once it reboots, looks and works fine.

    My 6s and SE both did it..haven't reset the 7 yet but I'm sure it'll do it and I'm not at all worried about it.

    I've noticed it happening too. You shouldn't be alarmed by it

    It seems iOS 10 is still a little buggy. I've been having push mail and general notification issues. They'll work it out.

    I had the same issue when I restarted my 6+ when first updating to iOS 10. It wasn't the exact same pattern as yours but very similar. I haven't been able to replicate since then.

    My wife's 7 froze completely when I was setting it up and I had to do a hard reset. The screen looked similar to your pic for a brief second but went back to normal as soon as the white screen with the Apple logo appeared and has been operating fine since (other than the standard issued 7 not being as bright as the 6S).

    If the 6S are doing this too, it is probably not anything to worry about.

    I guess I can assume it's a software issue because I had a similar display show when I performed a hard reset, since the first iOS 10 beta, as others are reporting.

    I wouldn't worry about it, anyway. If indeed the yellow screen issue is an issue, this seems unrelated to it.

    My 7 plus did that when I hard reset it yesterday however when it came back on it was fine. One of my older iPhones has done that before too on a hard reset. Can't remember which one.

    No, I'm just going to tell you that every issue doesn't need "gate" affixed to the end of it. Watergate was an office complex that had a presidential scandal tied to it due to a break in at said office.... not to be confused with technological bugs, defects, and hardware issues.

    The "gate" label is well deserved.

    Apple goes silent, employs denial which leaves customers high and dry. They've paid Apple's high price but received a poor quality or defective product. Out of frustration it gets labeled "gate" and Apple deserves it.

    Thanks for taking your valuable time on this forum to keep Apple honest. Drama-gate.

    More like software issue with it displaying temporary garbage data in graphics memory.

    Me too. 6s plus & 6s. Was concerned, but it hasn't harmed as far as I can see.
