    Sometimes when I'm in the app store, I get a .25 to .5 inch bar of noise in the middle of the screen. It only happens once every ten times or so but I'm concerned it is a defect that can only get worse.

    This happening to others as well? It's weird but happens for about 2 seconds then goes away.

    This is happening to everyone I have seen. It's a software bug I think.

    I hope it's not anything else..

    I've seen it on 2 iPhone 5's. It seems to be software related, because I don't see it in any other app besides the App Store.

    I've seen this on my iPhone 5 while in the App store but interestingly I also saw it today on my iPad 3 when in the Maps app. It only happened briefly and I didn't have time to take a photo.

    My guess is that this is some sort of rendering bug and will hopefully be fixed by iOS 6.0.1 soon. I'd be surprised if it turns out to be hardware related.

    Are you sure you saw it on your iPad 3? Could I please see some screenshots? and did thise occur only in iOS 6.0?

    I've seen the same problem twice, but did not particularly notice if it was in the app store or not. Lasted about 1-2 seconds and went away.

    Has anyone been able to reproduce this?

    I've contacted my retailer for a hardware replacement, but I'd rather not if it were a reproducible software bug.

    I've experienced this. Though as someone has pointed out its only been in the apps store. Nothing to be alarmed at, software fix.

    I noticed this once while typing in the search bar of the app store. Was a little noise going across the top half of the keyboard. I noticed at the end of my typing and hit search. I tried to go back in and replicate it and couldn't.

    Most definitely software. It will be addressed I'm sure.
