iPhone 4s display has an irregular curved pattern on it, like a faint contour map. This condition happened when the unit was safely tucked away in my brief case, not dropped or exposed to anything. It was preceeded, yesterday, by the iPhone acting really weird, not responding, etc. Then today the phone works fine, but the idsplay screen has this water-y pattern on it.


Any ideas?


Many thanks.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    The screen may have been crushed by pressure of front glass on underlying LCD Display. Reset, hold both home and power buttons for about 10 seconds until the iPhone restarts itself. See if better. If not, then Restore your iPhone with current iTunes on your computer. See if better. If not, make Genius reservation and take to Apple Store for evaluation. The Genius may be able to help.
