Screen has bright patches from water


My XR got water in it lest summer and it’s had these bright patches remain even thought the phone works perfectly.

I’m wondering if it’s a screen replacement or if I can take it apart and clean to restore it.

Is this a good question?

A proper screen replacement will be able to fix your issue. Most shops won’t warranty the repair as it had water damage previously. There is no way to “clean” the water out of the screen, only a replacement will work.

I thought so. Apple support said they wouldn’t touch it if there was water damage evidence. It would be a device replacement.

I’ll get it booked in for a screen replacement. Thanks
