The iPhone 5 'static lines' keyboard glitch is a software issue, to be patched with the next iOS 6 update

Apparently the problem is software-related, nothing to do with the in-cell touch display, as it mostly appears in certain situation where Apple now separates the keyboard pop-up window from the app it is running in, like during the above-mentioned Apple ID input. It has, however, also been appearing in app icons and individual letters.
…Apple is aware of the issue & that they’re working on it. It will be patched in an upcoming iOS update. It’s confirmed to be a software issue. Why it only happens on some devices, she didn’t have details. The bottom line is that they’re working on it now & we will have a solution.”There has allegedly already been a customer complaint reply from Apple's service, saying that the issue will be fixed with the next update: “

I camped out for Halo 3. I camp out for black fridays every year. Only enthusiasts will do that but if you dont have friends and cofee its no fun at all. Luckily I ddnt have to camp for my iphone. Apple stores usually have plenty to go around. Regarding the fuzzy lines. Ive seen it couple times. Its pretty cool. Tried to take a screenshot but it disappears after.

Apple spokesman: "Yes, we are aware of that. Yes. Wait, here's Mr. Cook - he says that.. Oh. Right. Wait, what issue? I'm sorry, this is one of our 200 new magical and revolutionary innovative features in iOS6 - iLine. Now, when you are in a password screen - the keyboard will become flooded with static lines - so that people won't see which keys you press to enter your password. And yes, we patented it!"
