Suddenly the upper left of my iPhone 12 is blurry. It looks like a piece of tape about an inch long is covering half the search bar. Anyone know what and why this is?

Thank you. I ended up calling Apple Support and they told me how to restart my iphone. I hadn't realized that the newer iPhones require pressing both the volume and the right side button to restart.
