    Ever since the iOS 10 update my screen flips out when restarting.. anyone know whats going on here, maybe you've experienced it previously? Anything to be concerned by?

    It is reallllly fast for me, but yes, I noticed. I was like, omg, it's exploding.. but then realised its just graphics memory going blah.. I've used the feedback app to report this.

    I have not seen this on my 6S+.

    When you say "restarting" what do you mean, just waking it up?

    home button + sleep button restart, is when i get it. i dont get it like that gif, but i get vertical stripes flash quick on the screen. and as if there's light bleed.. and not fully black, then it goes all black and white apple logo appears.

    Do not see that on mine.Almost sounds like a hardware issue but if it only does it when woken it would have to be software.

    No issues here with a 6S+. I did a clean install not sure if that makes a difference. I get a black screen with the apple logo all the way up to the passcode screen.

    Varied results now.. from something like the lock screen I get a more darker screen with fine lines of colour being dispersed.

    To replicate my gif I have to be on a pretty white ish based app, like Safari or voice mail

    The only time I've seen something similar to that was from water damage getting at the internal chips.

    The only time I have seen it is when using the gm public beta build of iOS 10, so I installed 9 : not there, back to 10, it's there.

    Then it's probably the software. But that glitchy fade is so familiar. Saw something similar on an old MacBook Pro that had a crapped out Nvidia graphics chip, but more different than the water damage one.

    Have also experienced it on my 6s Plus doing the home button/power button restart.

    Had my 6s plus replaced with a June 2016 production date one - hard reset shows half of the display really quickly with distortion with vertical lines. Thought I was the only one.

    Makes me thing something is wrong with the hardware. Can post a video if anyone is interested.

    Not the hardware if many people are having the same issue that never had it before iOS 10.

    iPhone 6S+ here - same weird screen anomaly when I do the home/power restart. Just a software issue.

    I notice something similar. I'm guessing it's software and will be fixed in a patch, but my iPhone 6s is being traded in tomorrow on a jet black iPhone 7, so I won't be able to verify that.

    It's been like this since iOS 10 beta 1. I generally DFU restore then restore a backup for each beta, so I noticed this a couple of days after beta 1 was out. Been there ever since. Not a hardware problem as my iPad Pro does the same also.

    I know it sounds sinister but my 6S has been the worst to easily scratch (it's always in a pocket by itself).. like literally the top of the screen looks like sandpaper has been dragged down it, so I was kinda hoping it was a defective screen that Apple would replace aha.

    Mine does some funky stuff too. I'm not too concerned about it, though.

    I am having the same problem. I have tried reseting settings. I have even reset and erased all content and then restored from a backup. Still having this problem. Has anyone figured out a resolution?

    Just a visual glitch that's there with iOS 10 (so far). Not really a problem or anything that affects anything, and nothing really to figure out short of some future update addressing it in some way.

    You're basically doing the software version of unplugging the battery. What do you think is gonna happen?

    You're forcing it to turn off immediately without letting it do a normal shutdown.
