Reportedly, the problem is due to some hardware flaws in the iPhone 5 and that there is nothing wrong in the operating system as such. To prove this, Recombu has also tested out the iPhone 4S running both iOS 6 and iOS 6.1 and no such issues were noticed in that. While the iPhone 5 running both the iOS version 6 and iOS version 6.1 has shown the same signs and display issues.

The software of the devices can certainly not be proved as the culprit for this issue. But it is still not known as the problem persists in a handful of devices or all across the iPhone users.

If the problem is at hardware level, then it’s just a matter of time before its starts showing up on other devices as well or it might not. Apple has not yet officially commented on the situation and a reply or some response in this regard is awaited. But more importantly, will Apple recall the iPhone 5 models already available in the market due to this region?
