Apple Watch display defect shows its stripes

The issue is mostly noticeable when the display is turned off, as pictured in the image above from Apple's internal materials describing the problem.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has sent an internal memo confirming that some Global Positioning System models of the Watch Series 3 are showing "edge stripes" on the display.

Apple has informed its retail fix staff, as well as authorized third-party sellers, about the problem, according to 9to5Mac.

MacRumors claims to have viewed the memo, in which Apple says only Global Positioning System models are affected, not cellular models. The difference could be the result of LTE models having a different display assembly with an integrated antenna.

In order to verify that the issue exists on a particular Apple Watch, Genius Bar and Apple Authorized Service Provider employees will ask the customers to rub their finger on the display to allow smearing to appear.

A few 9to5Mac writers with the GPS Apple Watch Series 3 aren't experiencing the issue, and from reports online it doesn't yet seem to be a widespread problem among early adopters of the new device. If the edge strips don't show up, Apple's says they should clean the display and then have a user breathe on it to create humidity.
