Learn what the iPhone 6 touch disease really is

Have you ever wondered why your iPhone 6 touch screen won’t respond to your touch? Is there a flickering bar at the top of display? It’s the touch disease.

What is the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Touch disease?

The “touch disease” is a nickname for a condition when your iPhone 6 touch screen is not responding to touch inputs. You can’t tap. You can’t pinch. You can’t swipe. However, the home button works and the rest of the physical buttons around the smartphone. You’ll know it’s a touch disease when you can’t use your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Also take note that the top of the screen might produce a flickering bar whenever you endlessly try to make your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus work.

What is the cause of this iPhone 6 hardware issue?

It’s caused by the touchscreen controller in the logic board failing to make contact to a soft patch of tape. That is why when you squeeze the part of your iPhone 6 where this failed controller chip sits, you can temporarily fix the problem.

Should I squeeze my iPhone 6 then?

Please don’t do that. You can either break the iPhone 6 screen or bend the aluminum chassis at the back. So don’t do this when you can.

What should I do when my iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus have this issue?

If you are still under warranty, then no worries you can just bring it to the Apple Store and get a new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus replacement unit. It’s that simple.

If you’re out of warranty you can just do the operation yourself to fix this touch disease or you can take it to expert repair shops where they can fix it for you. Please take note that if you don’t have the skills and qualifications to do it yourself, don’t do it.

We recommend you call Sydney CBD Repair Centre to fix that touch disease for you.
