    My iPhone now looks like the attached photo. Any idea what might be wrong and/or what I might need to replace?

    Thanks

    Yep, looks like screen needs a replacement.
    Find a local iphone repair place or bring it to Apple.
    If you're under warranty they will do it for free, if not they will charge you a fee according to your iphone model.

    To clarify, Applejuiced means that your LCD needs to be replaced. Based on your model of iPhone, that could include the glass as well.

    Thank you AD.
    Yes, not just 1 piece, usually its 3 pieces fused in together like glass, lcd and digitizer.

    It's a 4 or 4S, so let's say yes.

    Either bring it to a shop or get the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S display assembly and do it yourself.

    Yep.

    OP, what model iPhone do you have? If you're interested in a challenge and huge risk of damage you'll inflict upon your device, I can post links to the part you need.

    OP, it kind looks like that corner was pressed really hard.
