Not sure which
mobile to buy?

Earlier, many iPhone 14 Pro users took to Reddit and Apple's community forums to complain about the strange bug that is creating green and yellow lines that are flashing across their screens.

“I just got the iPhone 14 Pro Max this past Friday(12/9/22). I noticed that when the phone wakes up, horizontal lines flash on the screen. It does that randomly, not every time the phone wakes up. Sometimes it's just 1 line, sometimes it's multiple,” one of the Reddit users shared on the platform.

While another user writes, “The most funny thing about this all is I've started using AOD (always on display) to avoid that flickering issue when waking phone up and my AOD is not working... Every single time display goes full black after 5-10 minutes :D ... Well I am not even angry at this point. There are so many issues I can't count them.”

A couple of users also claimed that the problem appeared after installing the latest iOS 16. 2 updates on the iPhones, while others say that the issue was there even on the older version of iOS 16.
