How To Fix the iPhone White Blotch/Blur In Top Left Or Right Corner

Are you getting a white blur when you unlock your iPhone or open and close some apps? I personally started to get this problem recently but it wasn’t difficult to find a fix. And it’s easy!

First here’s what it looks like:

That annoying white blur kept on appearing whenever I unlocked my iPhone and closed certain apps like the calculator app.

The Fix:

In my case all I had to do was move the Google Maps app from the second row of the home screen to the third row. And voila! The problem was gone.

I remembered that I had recently moved the Apple Maps app to my “Junk” folder (I don’t like Apple Maps yet) and I had placed the Google Maps app where the Apple one used to be: on the second row. Turns out the iPhone doesn’t like the Google Maps app being there for some reason.

When I moved the Google Maps app to the third row and second column on my iPhone the white blur stopped happening.

Why does this happen? I have no idea. But I’m glad that the fix is that simple.

Note: if you don’t have Google Maps then it may be another app/folder causing the problem. Move the apps you have on your second row somewhere else one by one. One of these should be the culprit.
