Just yesterday, we reported that many tipsters were coming to us with proof that the Retina displays on their new iPhone 4s were exhibiting strange, discolored "blotching" issues. Since then, many more people have come forward, noticing the same issue on their own phones.
According to an AppleInsider forum post that claims to be from a person closely connected to the company that sold Apple and/or Foxconn the glass bonding adhesive for the iPhone, this is to be expected. Well, it's to be expected for a device shipped very quickly from the factory, where the bonding material (known as Organofunctional Silane Z-6011) hasn't had time to dry.
Apparently, all you need to do is wait a few more days & use the screen normally to allow the adhesive to dry, and your iPhone should be cured from its case of the measles ... or whatever the heck you want to call it.
The fix for your iPhone 4 display blotching problem: Wait
