One issue that has been making headlines with respect to iPhone is the “Touch disease”. Every month more and more iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus is taken to mobile repair shops for fixing “Touch disease”, which basically represent an unresponsive touch screen with presence of gray bar at the top of the display.
According to the experts at Cellfixx, the touch disease problem with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus goes deeper than mere display and doesn’t really go away by replacing the touch screen panel. In fact in cases where screen has been replaced for fixing touch disease, the ill-reputed gray flickering screen has returned after some time. The real problem lies behind the screen in fact. It’s the Touch IC chips or more commonly known logic board inside the casing that’s causing the problem. In iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus, the ICs are connected to logic board through solder balls. Any twisting or flexing of cell phone cause loss of connection between ICs and board. The problem starts with random unresponsive screen which self-restored with time. However, with time the crack deepens and the problem starts to worsen and in worst scenario you’ll be left with a totally scrape and unresponsive touch screen.
The logic board or Touch IC chips are primarily responsible in transforming your fingers’ mashing into phone readable information. Once there’s a problem with these chips, you can press your screen as hard as you can but it won’t be able to process your commands – unless these chips are repaired or replaced obviously.
Unfortunately, APPLE isn’t anywhere near admitting the problem and there in-house iPhone repair technicians aren’t equipped for Touch disease fix, so iPhone users are left with little choice than to opt for third party cell phone repair technicians. These third party repair shops (most of which aren’t authorized by APPLE) have skilled micro-soldering experts who actually can fix the issue. The best part is they can do it a lot cheaper as compared to the upfront cost of new logic board.
