    Picture says it all. Opened it and it was fine. The next morning it just randomly showed these bars. It's the screen because the bars show on top of icons, apps, etc. Lame.

    The marks appear a few seconds after turning the screen on. But they don't go away while it's on after that. [​IMG]

    Three things:

    1.) YOUR iPhone 6s screen may be defective.

    2.) I've no idea what I'm really looking at.

    3.) Get a new iPhone?

    1) obviously. Never implied it was all screens. Can people not be so quick to try to argue?

    2) the white bars along the bottom.

    3) that's what I'm going to try to do. Just was sharing.

    1.) I believe you'll find your thread title did imply all screens.

    2.) Can you take a better picture? I can't tell if it's part of the background or not, despite what you say.

    3.) Thanks for sharing.

    I hate to say I can not see what your talking about. It may just be the photo you took but I am unable to see anything. But if you think your display might be defective, you should call AppleCare right away.

    Did you figure out how to remove apps or move icons?

    I had this same problem with a iPhone 6plus. Take it back and replace it. It's the screen connectors shadows that are showing up. It's defective and needs to be replaced.

    OP that is the worst picture you could have ever chosen to show us your problem. Had no idea what you were talking about until @Phoenixsong posted a pic.

    Very simple solution: Walk into an Apple store and get your phone replaced within 15 minutes. This falls under Apple's hardware warranty.
