1. Some normal iPhone aftermarket screen touch issues


Common iPhone aftermarket screen touch issues are flickering screen, full screen unresponsive or partly screen unresponsive, and ghost touch. The flickering screen is the phenomenon that when we turn on the phone after the new screen replaced, the screen keeps flickering with unstable brightness. Flickering screen not only happens on iPhone X series aftermarket screen but also on other iPhone model screens. We will explain why this happens in the next paragraph. The unresponsive screen or partly unresponsive screen is the screen quality problem. It is unrepairable, technically speaking. Any new replaced iPhone screen with these problems will need a second repair. Ghost touch means the irregular automatic response on the screen without touching. This happens on some newly replaced screen occasionally.

2. Why iPhone aftermarket screens have these touch problems


These touch issues happen a few days after the new screen replacement. Simple new screen flickering problem occurs because of the bad quality screen or systematic reason, and some of which can be solved on Settings. As to the unresponsive touch issue, the reasons are complex. Some of the new replaced screens cannot touch at all. It may be the problem of the improper screen flex cable connection or the broken screen flex cables. We need to tear down the new screen again and check the flex cables, reconnect the cables or fix the broken flex and reassemble the screen so that it would go back to normal. Partly unresponsive screen is the problem of the screen quality, you need to replace another new screen. Ghost touch issues are complex. Exclude the possibility of the reasons for ESD or improper installation, we may assume the reason for the hardware and software problem of the screen. Most aftermarket iPhone screens from China are manufactured in factories of the mainland, while the touch IC, which is the core part of the iPhone screen is supported by leading companies like Samsung or Taiwan Semiconductor. Most of the aftermarket iPhone X screens and replacement parts from China cannot meet the standard of the touch IC. This will lead to the consequence of the screen touch issue. On the other hand, the software on the aftermarket iPhone X screens is insufficient to computing the larger new iPhone drive IC software volume. That will also cause the problem of screen touch failure.
