There’s a black “ink”spot in the bottom right corner of my screen?

My screen has no cracks on it, I’ve dropped it twice.

The first time it landed backside down and I noticed that a small black spot that sort of resembles ink appeared. I dropped it again today, it landed the same way, and the spot got bigger.

I can still control my screen directly on where the black spot is im just not sure what it is or how it could be repaired

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If you could post a picture, we could say for certain but it sounds to me like the actual OLED has been damaged. If that’s the case, then you will need to replace the screen.

If you want a high quality screen replacement, then Apple is still your best bet. However if your housing is damaged, they may refuse to replace the screen, in which case an independent repair shop will be able to replace the screen. Just ask about the quality level of the replacement screen because there are some inexpensive (relatively speaking) aftermarket LCD’s and now aftermarket and premium level OLED.

Black splotches inside LCD display are caused by dropping the phone.

To get that fixed you would need to get the hole display replaced. Most expensive phone to get it replaced.

Does the warranty cover this type of damage?

Does it grow with time on iphoneX?

by

It can get worse over time as it bleeds like ink in a display that expands. This would not be covered under normal warranty as it is considered physical damage.

I don’t know how I got it but, after school I noticed this almost ink like stuff that is in or under screen on my iPhone 6 that appeared in the top right corner of my screen. I took of my screen protector to see if it was under that but it looks like what i said it could be inside or underneath the screen. I didn’t think or hoped it would not spread but, over the course of a week it has gotten bigger and spread. I hope it does not spread more because I might have to sell it for a few bucks and get a new phone.

Liquid has seeped into the screen to be particular the backlight of the display.

A screen replacement should fix the problem. If getting the screen replaced make sure to get the internals checked for any liquid that may have gotten inside the phone.

XR uses LCD instead of OLED which is why the discolouration looks different. With oleds liquid can't really get in between the screen.
