For a while now, some iPhone 13 users have been experiencing issues of their screen turning pink. According to reports, this is being caused by a bug which Apple still hasn’t fixed yet. The bug causes apps to freeze, slow perform and eventually shut down. The problem seems to be happening, only to the iPhone 13 series and not other Apple devices.
The issue has cropped up on the Apple Communities Forum board where many have shared their experience. One person reported that their GPS was inaccurate and the phone’s display turned pink. Another said the battery was acting weird and the phone kept freezing and then proceeded to pink screen. While a good number of users have complained about the issue, Apple hasn’t really rolled out a fix yet.
As at the time of writing this report, Apple isn’t sure what exactly is causing the bug. While we await an official fix from the phone manufacturer, here is what you can do to fix to the problem.
