    Hey all,I just bought a 6 month old iPhone 5, and I've noticed this evening that there is some pink tinting in a rectangle of the screen.

    It stops about 5mm from each edge

    Anyone know if this is a common fault? Or what might be wrong?

    Additionally as I bought this second hand anyone know if Apple will
    Cover under warranty?

    Post a picture. Sounds like a hardware issue that they will likely warranty.

    Go here to check warranty ststus:

    You can then call AppleCare or go into your local Apple Store and get the phone replaced if it turns out to be an issue with the hardware.

    I tried to do that and failed as it wouldn't show easily enough and would waste your time!

    It's in warranty so have booked a genius appointment - from my research they have no issue with second hand devices as long as they are in warranty

    Replacement phone. Sorted. Love Apple!

    He did say within a month they would have done an in store screen replacement.
