iPhone 4 Screen Issues

Today the iPhone 4 was launched in many countries however a few big problems have arisen. The first one being the retina display which on 1000’s of users iPhone 4 is showing a yellow tint in parts of the screen.

However there has been a follow up on this issue someone posting on the AppleInsider forums seems to know why:

Apple is using a bonding agent called Organofunctional Silane Z-6011 to bond the layers of glass. Apparently, Apple (or more likely Foxconn) is shipping these products so quickly that the evaporation process is not complete. However, after one or two days of use, especially with the screen on, will complete the evaporation process and the yellow “blotches” will disappear. How do I know? I was involved in pitching Z-6011 to Apple.
So if this is true then we might see this problem clear within a few days as if not Apple is going to have a huge problem, seeing as in a recent Engadget poll 55% of users said there screen had the yellow colouring issue, which out of a sample of 27,640 people is quite shocking to say the least. This isn’t the only issue of the day that is affecting users but the new revolutionary antenna system seems to be causing big issues with reception and dropped calls, although Apple says it doesn’t it’s just to do with how the signal is displayed.

Apple Tablet Pictures Leaked?

Engadget have received some pictures, which they cannot confirm as being real but they do look real, of the upcoming Apple Tablet. It’s only just over an hour now until the event begins so it won’t be long until we find out.

Here’s what Engadget posted:

we just got two very interesting images of what certainly looks like a prototype Apple tablet, or what could be the tablet bolted down to a table. It’s big — really big — and it’s running what clearly looks like an iPhone app, although we’ve never seen an iPhone app with that interface or at that resolution before. We also see a WiFi icon and a cell service indicator, although tragically there’s no carrier listed.

So the few picture leaked do look a lot like people thought which is a large iPhone but Steve Troughton-Smith had some interesting ideas about the images.

So from what we have seen we’re guessing the resolution might be around 640×1024, that the picture shows a non-OLED device, however this doesn’t rule one out. And that Apple are still using Google Maps for the device.

The images show an interesting case around the side, this could be for security or just to disguise the device, as some people over at iPhone Alley spotted a device running a modified version of Mac OS X on a device which was thought to be the new tablet.
