iPhone users have discovered another problem with the iPhone 15, with many now reporting yet another technical hitch with the latest model.

Despite being trumpeted as Apple's best iPhone to date, it's fair to say that the release of the new iPhone 15 has been a little rocky.

It started with people saying that the build of the phone had caused it to crack under minimal stress.

And then, some customers reported problems with overheating, a problem that became so widespread in the new models that Apple was even forced to release an iOS update to fix the problem.

Now, however, it seems that there is also an issue with the screen itself.

Growing numbers of users are reporting that they are experiencing 'burn-in' on their screen.

This is when an icon or image becomes a permanent fixture on the phone's screen, usually one which is displayed a lot such as the home screen or keyboard.

No matter what it is that you're viewing, you'll always have the shadow of that over the top of it.

In short, it's a big (undeniably first world) problem.

It appears that the model which is most impacted by the issue is the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the largest and most powerful model in the iPhone 15 line.

Some people have put this down to the model's higher temperature causing issues on the screen.

If you have an iPhone 15 Pro Max and start experiencing these issues, you can make an appointment at the Apple store to speak to a technician about the issue.

Following this, if it turns out that the problem is with the hardware itself then you should be well within the one year warranty period that Apple offers to customers in the US.

However, Apple Insider has reported that based on data it has been collecting since 2015, the burn-in issue is not any worse on the new model than it has been on previous new releases.

This doesn't mean it's not happening, but it's not something which is unique to the new model.

Some users who have experienced this issue and raised it with Apple have also said that they had been provided with a new handset after it became clear that their iPhone was faulty.

Even so, it's still a frustrating thing to happen, particularly on a device with a price tag which starts at a whopping $1,199.

UNILAD has reached out to Apple for comment.
