iphoneBack in August, it seems that there was an increase in reports of iPhone 6 Plus units experiencing some kind of touch issue with their phone’s display. Dubbed the “Touch Disease”, Apple’s inaction led to a class-action lawsuit, but the good news is that it looks like Apple might have the answer to your problem.

The company has announced that they will be launching a multi-touch repair program aimed at the iPhone 6 Plus in which they will fix the flickering and touch issues plaguing the phone. This won’t be a free repair since presumably by now warranties for the iPhone 6 Plus have already run the clock, but we guess it is cheaper than buying a new device.

According to the company, “Apple has determined that some iPhone 6 Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device. If your iPhone 6 Plus is exhibiting the symptoms noted above, is in working order, and the screen is not cracked or broken, Apple will repair your device for a service price of $149.”

As for those who paid to have their phones repaired by Apple prior to this announcement, Apple said that they will be getting in contact with these customers and will be refunding them the difference.
