Excessive heat discolours the back


Some early
adopters of Apple's iPhone 3GS are reporting that the shiny white back of their handsets is changing colour after intensive use.

Users have reported the issue on several sites, including AppleInsider, and posted images of their white iPhones turning brown and pink on the back.
