    Most of the area of my iPhone 5 display now has a very faint pink tint. There is a thin white border all around. I did a search and it seems like this is a widespread problem even with replacement devices :-(

    So far the usability of the device is unaffected. My question is: how much more pink does the screen get over time? I can live with this, as long as the screen doesn't become like the T-Mobile logo and pink everything out.

    I had the same issue with my iPhone. Went to the Apple store and they replaced my display ($149), luckily I still had my warranty intact.

    How long ago did you have your display replaced? Did the pink tint ever return?

    A quick email check, I had it repaired back in September. I really haven't noticed if it came back or not.

    Wait, why did it cost you $149 if you were under warranty?

    It didn't cost me anything. I was just saying it would of cost that, if I didn't have the warranty.

    Ok thanks!

    From the other threads it seemed like the tint would show up almost exactly 1 year after purchase, so I kind of wonder if there's a very slow chemical reaction that affects the adhesive formula.

    Anyone with a 5S have this issue?
