An apparent software issue is causing some iPhone 13’s to display a pink overlay on their screens and crash. The issue has been reported numerous times on Apple’s Discussions Forums and Reddit.
Seemingly the only common thing between the issues is that it’s happening to the iPhone 13 series and not other Apple devices. One person reported that their GPS was inaccurate and the phone’s display turned pink. Another said the battery was acting weird and the phone kept freezing and then proceeded to pink screen.
A couple of users have reportedly had their phones replaced, while others were turned down by Apple with the response that there’s no hardware issue.

It seems the issue is most frequent in China, which is why Apple went on Weibo to advise its customers to do a backup and then update to the latest version of iOS.
Apple hasn’t issued any pink screen-related fixes, per its iOS 15.3 release candidate beta’s log.
