Do you have an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus and you’re experiencing some touch problems with your phone? If you are, you’re not alone. It seems that according to several recent reports, there is a growing number of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners who are reporting that their phone’s touchscreen is no longer responsive to touch.
Touchscreens failing isn’t exactly rare, but what’s rare is that these problems seem to be cropping up more frequently as of late, and they seem to be only affecting iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners. According to the reports, users are reporting that they are seeing a grey flickering bar at the top of their phone’s screen that indicates that there is a problem.
Unfortunately according to iFixit, they claim that there is really nothing that can be done about this, save for changing the logic board on your iPhone, replacing the Touch ICs on the logic board, or buy a new phone entirely. If your iPhone is still under warranty, you’ll want to have it replaced immediately.
As it stands, Apple appears to be aware of the issue, but aren’t doing anything about it as they claim that they do not “recognize” it. iFixit recommends that users send their phones to a third-party repair shop if they really want it fixed and if they don’t want to buy a new phone. They have also attributed the problem to a design flaw in which the touchscreen controller chips have been soldered to the logic board of the iPhone.
