    Well.

    One, it's obvious that your screen is cracked. There's been reported issues when the iPhone 5 was launched (it looks like you have the iPhone 5) of purple hazing. It was a screen defect.

    I'd say take it in and have Apple check it but they are probably going to argue that whatever you did to crack the screen is responsible for this and charge you for a replacement.

    that is true, but its been cracked for almost a year, and it just happened in this weird hazing only started happening a week ago. but ill definitely have them check it out! i also just realized today that it goes away and comes back.. super weird.

    Oh, I'm not saying that the crack is the cause of the problem. I just mentioned it because Apple is likely to believe that the crack is the cause of your problem. And if Apple believes that they will probably deny you any in warranty repair/replacement because screen cracks are usually a result of customer mishandling.
