    Oliver, first i am hearing this iphone 6 touch screen issue. But i am sure these method will work. If not kindly say so.

    UPDATED: Technobezz has released an in-depth guide here: iPhone/iPad touch screen not working !

    Solution 1: Restart your iPhone

    Sometimes, your iPhone’s screen becomes unresponsive due to some unclosed applications. Perhaps, you may have opened too many applications and was not able to close it. This causes your screen to freeze and hang no matter how you try to tap it. To solve this problem, restarting your iPhone may help. Most applications close when the phone is switched off. Turn on your phone after 3-5 minutes to completely refresh it. Test if the screen is already working.

    Solution 2: Maximize your iPhone’s RAM

    Low RAM availability can also cause screens to fail from working. Delete unused applications on your iPhone to maximize RAM then restart your phone to refresh it.

    Solution 3: Make a hard reset on your iPhone 6

    If fixing calibration doesn’t help, do a hard reset on your iPhone 6. Hard reset helps in turning your phone back to its good condition. Turn off your iPhone 5 > Press Power together with the Home button until it restarts and opens iTunes > wait until your phone is on Restore Mode. An alternative way to do this is to restore your iPhone on factory settings. You have to install the new version of iTunes on your computer and open it. Connect your iPhone 6 on your computer using a USB connector. As soon as iTunes detects your phone, it will be added on the list of devices. Select your phone from the list of devices and open Summary tab. Click restore button. Follow instructions until done. By doing this, a new operating system has been installed which help fix touchscreen problems in iPhone 5.

    Solution 4: Realign or replace your phone screen display

    If hard reset doesn’t help, physical screen display defects are also the cause of touchscreen problems in iPhone 6. To fix the problem, realigning or replacing the physical screen display could be the solution. This applies effectively especially if you have dropped your phone. Some cables may have loose contacts and you need to attach it well. If the screen is broken, then you have to replace it. For instance you don’t know how to realign or replace your screen, go to an Apple service center and let an expert do the realignment or replacement of the screen.

    Make sure you are using the pad of your finger, not using my finger nail. or even the extreme side of your fingers. I was having a similar problem (not as bad) and began using the pad of my finger and now my screen works beautifully… If that doesn’t work I would take it in, sounds like it might be a problem with your screen.
    I am sure of it. I’ve used it quite a bit with no problems. Problems just randomly started up.

    I am having this problem. I dropped my iphone 5c and now my touch screen will not work at all. I restarted the phone with no luck, I took it to get the screen replaced and they told me that a new screen didnt work either and that they put my screen on a different phone and it worked fine so it may be my software to restore the phone.. i did that and it still does not work and is now stuck on the “slide to set up” screen [​IMG] help!!

    These are some quick tips to fix the issue

    1 Drain the battery of your IPhone 5, then let it charge for 1 hour.Turn it on to see if it’s working

    2 Hold the Power and hold button for 30 seconds, then turn it back on.

    3 Restarting the phone multiply times can help. around 3-5 times

    I dropped my Iphone 5c on the floor this morning and my touch screen has been on the fritz on and off all day. I have restarted it 4 times, I hale literally no apps on it, and nothing is working. But whenever it starts to act up or stopworking alltogether, there is a strip of small white squares along the bottom of the screen. Can someone help me?

    Charlie, this is definitely a problem with the Digitizer. Small White squares along the bottom of the screen can also indicate that the flex cable is not seated correctly. This cable is the first cable that connects the screen to the motherboard. It’s located at the top of the phone with a horizontal orientation.

    1 Remove all the three connectors and reseat them properly

    2 Reseat the ribbon cables to the LCD Screen of your IPhone and your small white squares will be gone

    3 Reseat the Sensor or camera Flex cable . This requires you to separate the glass from the LCD

    Replaced the screen on my iPhone 5c and now when I run it on there is one vertical line cear the middle but to the right side a bit and to the left of it the screen is white and to right of it the screen is black.
    It seems totally unresponsive to touch but I cannot see anything so not completely sure. Did I make a connection wrong or is it something else?

    Dropped my 5c and had lines and unresponsive to touch. Took it to specialist who changed screen with no improvement. They suggested only other option to fix would be to reflow the board. So irritating as I had body glove on phone and I have never dropped it before.

    Hey, i have had a similar issue.

    Dropped my phone once and it got strange squares all over the top of the screen.
    Also the touch is completely unresponsive.

    I am going to make a video when I have it back and try to repair it myself.

    Apple tried charging me $500 to have it repaired so I told them to get f**ked ;D

    Anyone have any tips on this would help alot. <3

    Thankyou.

    The other day I dropped my phone. My phone still works but the touchscreen is acting up. When ever I try to unlock my phone the touchscreen does not respond, but after I lock it (you know when you press the lock button to unlock it but then have to swipe the screen?? Well I can’t swipe my screen until I press the lock button again to lock it then press it again to unlock it) after I press the lock button a second time it works just fine. I don’t want to reset my phone because I have important photos on my phone. Anyone have an idea what I can do??

    Sometimes, the screen is dry or dirty. try taking off your screen protector (if u have one) wash your hands twice and put some tiny drops of water on yur screen and then wipe it with a dry cloth, worked for me…

    This also happened to me I dropped my phone after taking a shower and my touchscreen only works for about a minute but then stops. When it does allow you to use the touchscreen immediately attempt to turn off your phone. Try to do this several times, it worked for me.
