The iPhone 4 has officially been launched and the first problems are already been reported. After a lot of Apple fans unboxed their iPhone 4, they noticed some yellow spots on the Retina Display “about the size of shirt buttons”.

In the bottom 10% of the screen there are three blotches about the size of shirt buttons that discolor the screen a brown/yellow color.” You can see a demonstration of that anomaly in the image to the right.

As you can understand the costumers are not happy with this, but there is a fix for this problem. Just keep on using your device and the yellow spots will disappear. Explanation after the break.

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.
