Yellow dots: The problem that dried up
Luckily for Apple, sometimes problems just go away on their own.

One of the first iPhone 4 gripes to surface was sporadic accounts of yellow spots and bars marring iPhone 4 screens. Gizmodo hosted a photo gallery of user-submitted images showing translucent yellow splotches that appeared underneath the iPhone screen's glass.

But as quickly as the bug reports popped up, so did the rebuttals. Some customers said the yellow magically faded away as Launch Day wore on and their new phones got more use. A popular explanation of the phenomenon is that the yellowness was from the glue used to attach the screen to the iPhone's body. Since Apple manufactured and shipped the phones so quickly, some bloggers say, the glue had not dried yet on some phones.

Apple never commented on the reports, and no mainstream media reviews of the iPhone mentioned any yellow dots or bars.

One less problem for Apple to solve!
