iPhone 15 Pro major problems: "Green screen" error suddenly returns, Apple said that discoloration on the titan border is "normal"
It was thought that Apple had fixed this screen error and users could safely buy the new iPhone 15 Pro. The green screen error suddenly appeared just a few days after the iPhone 15 Pro reached consumers around the world.
The green screen error was reported on X by a user in India named Chisel Bhatia. He said he was using the newly purchased iPhone 15 Pro normally when the screen started to gradually turn green. He, however, shared on a video of it on Twitter, this is the process of iPhone 15 Pro gradually turning to green screen:
Luckily, because he just bought it, Apple will of course return it to Chisel Bhatia for free. This guy said he brought his iPhone 15 Pro to the Apple Store and they gave him a completely new one instead of repairing the screen.
It remains to be seen when Apple will fix these issues, but it will most likely be on the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max models currently on sale, but we don't know how large or small the error rate is.
Apple: discoloration of the Titan border on the iPhone 15 Pro is "normal", just wipe it off
In a newly updated support document, Apple says fingerprints can "temporarily change the color" of the titanium frame on iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Luckily, Apple says this is not a permanent condition as the fingerprint can simply be removed to restore a clean appearance.
Specifically, Apple said that for iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, oil from the user's hand skin can temporarily change the exterior color. Wiping iPhone with a soft, lightly dampened lint-free cloth will restore its original appearance.
Images of iPhone 15 Pro/Pro Max models with clear fingerprints on the titanium frame have been circulating on social media since the devices were announced last week. Looking at the image, many people worry that the color of the chassis being changed like that could have long-term effects.
The fact that Apple notes that the condition is only temporary and can be cleaned can also help those planning to buy iPhone 15 Pro/Pro Max feel secure.
Breaking is breaking, iPhone 15 Pro Max "failed miserably" in JerryRigEverything's durability test
Specifically, the iPhone 15 Pro Max's screen is highly scratch-resistant, showing only visible marks at Mohs level 7. But moving on to the bending test. Often considered trivial because most high-end smartphone models pass this test. But Phone 15 Pro Max brought a huge disappointment.
Despite withstanding the bending force from JerryRigEverything's hands without bending, the rear glass cracked almost immediately. It is difficult to determine exactly why the back glass is so fragile, it may be due to the modular design of easily replacing the new back glass that makes the iPhone 15 Pro Max so easily broken. However, when trying to bend the iPhone 15 Pro, the back glass did not break like the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Anyone familiar with alloys knows that Titanium Grade 5 is not cheap. It is actually one of the more expensive variants of the Titan and for good reasons because of its applications, so Apple's claim to use Titan Grade 5 is a bold statement. Titanium, when heated, will turn a characteristic blue color due to a chemical reaction.
YouTuber JerryRigEverything tried "burning" the Titan border on the iPhone 15 Pro Max to see if it was real Titan or not. The results show that the Titan border on the iPhone 15 Pro Max changes to the characteristic blue color of Titan. It seems that Apple did not deceive us.
