Widespread Issue among iPhones

The Apple genius bar will declare an iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus with an unresponsive touch screen and flickering gray bar as irreparable. This is actually the most common iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus problem and can be easily repaired by skilled technicians.


The Problem: IC touch disease

The IC touch disease starts at the top of the screen with a flickering gray bar, but over time the problem spreads disabling the touch screen completely. The problem is a widespread issue among iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus phones due to a hardware manufacturing issue. Genius bar representatives are very familiar with the problem and are reluctant to repair them. This is because the problem usually happens when the iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus is not under warranty. The genius bar representatives will recommend purchasing a new phone.


The Solution: Microsoldering

The iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus was designed to be wider but due to its slim structure, the phone tends to bend especially when placed in pants pockets. This causes slight bending and eventually cracking the logic board of the iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus.


Many iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus users and unskilled technicians will diagnose the problem as a simple screen replacement, but the problem is not related to the screen. The issue is due to touch IC chips located on the logic board inside the phone. When the touch IC fails, the phone cannot process touch, even if the screen is replaced.


A micro soldering specialist is needed to fix the IC touch disease in iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus phones, because most genius bar representatives are not authorized or equipped to make such repairs. The cost of the repair is much less than replacing the entire phone, as advised by genius bar employees.
