White iPhones Overheating, Turning Brown?

If you are the proud owner of a new, white iPhone 3GS, you might want to be a little more careful with how you use it. A report has popped up of white iPhones suffering from a nasty brownish burnt discoloration after significant periods of use.

The picture is linked above, and you can tell something is definitely wrong with the phone. No one can say for sure, but it certainly looks like it overheated and burnt a little. The user stated that it happened when he was using the GPS and the 3G connection at the same time. If that is the case, than Apple has another potentially big problem on their hands. A glitch like that (if it isn't contained to one or two bad phones) could lead to a major recall, or at least a whole lot of refunds.

If your iPhone (white or otherwise) starts to overheat and discolor, please drop us an email and let us know. We'll keep you updated if any more iPhone issues develop.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
