iPhone screen is not working, Here is the Fix.
It’s natural to feel frustrated when your iPhone touch screen is not working. There are a lot of reasons why your iPhone touch screen might stop working. Thankfully, there are also a lot of ways to fix those problems. In this article, In this article, we've listed some of the reasons why screens don't work and how to fix them.
Why is My iPhone Touch Screen Not Responding?
The first thing we need to do is figure out why your iPhone touch screen. Usually, the problem is caused when the physical part of your iPhone’s display that processes touch (called the digitizer) stops working correctly or when your iPhone’s software stops “talking” to the hardware the way it should.
If your screen appears unresponsive and fixes, we suggest that you run through these steps to try and fix the problem with your unresponsive screen.
Tips for solving screen unresponsiveness
1、Is the screen not working all the time, or only when using one specific app? If it's the latter, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.
2、Are your fingers wet? Dry off any moisture. Check they're clean, too - anything that could be stopping the touchscreen making a good connection.
3、Just to check, you're not wearing gloves, are you? Some gloves are designed to work with touchscreens, but most don't.
4、Try removing the screen protector, if you use one.
5、Give the screen a wipe with a soft cloth.
6、Assuming your device has this feature, check the 3D Touch sensitivity settings. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > 3D Touch and adjust the sensitivity slider.
7、If the screen problem is related to rotation (ie refusing to rotate when you want it to, or rotating when you don't), check Orientation Lock. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up Control Centre, and tap the 'rotating padlock' icon. And try fiddling with the side switch on your device, if it has one. (This only applies to the iPad Air 1 and earlier. iPhones have never had rotation switches.)
8、Hold down the circular Home button and the On/Off (Sleep/Wake) button at the same time for around 10 seconds. This will restart the device and should restore the screen to full working order.
9、Make sure that there isn't a software update to install - Apple has fixed a few issues that were causing screens to become unresponsive in subsequent updates to iOS.
10、Has the screen become unresponsive since you had it repaired by a company other than Apple? There have been reports that some third-party replacement screens don't work as well with the iPhone as others, so we suggest you return to the shop and tell them about the issue you are having.
11、A more extreme option is to reset the device to factory settings.
If none of these techniques work. It could be a hardware or a software problem, the following paragraphs will address these issues for you.
Software Problems and Your iPhone Touch Screen
A problem with the software that tells your phone how to act can cause your iPhone touch screen to stop working. It may help to reset troublesome software if your iPhone touch screen is not working.
Does your touch screen stop responding when you use a certain app? That app may be to blame. Try uninstalling and reinstalling it. To uninstall an app:
1、Find the app on your iPhone’s Home screen. The Home screen is what you see below in the screenshot below.
2、Press and hold on the app icon until a menu appears.
3、Tap Delete App.
If your iPhone touch screen is not working after you’ve reinstalled the app, send a message to the app developer. They may have a fix for the problem or be working on a solution already.
How Do I Send a Message to the App Developer?
1、Tap to open the App Store.
2、Tap Search at the bottom of the screen and search for the app.
3、Tap the app icon to open details about the app.
4、Scroll to the bottom and tap Developer Website. The developer’s website will load.
5、Look for a contact form or email address on the developer’s website. It shouldn’t be hard to find it the developer is worth their salt. Remember that good developers appreciate it when you let them know about problems with their apps!
Update Your iPhone
It’s rare, but occasionally iPhone software updates can cause touch screen issues. The most recent documented case of this happening was Apple’s iOS 11.3 update. The problem was quickly fixed by a subsequent Apple update.
Open Settings and tap General -> Software Update. Tap Download and Install if an iOS update is available on your iPhone.
When Your iPhone Doesn’t Respond To Touch At All
Touch screen problems that happen in multiple applications or when you don’t have an app open may be caused by problems with the iPhone’s software. A good first troubleshooting step is to power your iPhone off and back on again, but it’s hard to do that when your touch screen doesn’t work! Instead, we’ll need to do a hard reset. Here’s how:
If your iPhone won’t turn off in the normal way — or if turning your iPhone off and back on again doesn’t solve the problem — try doing a hard reset. To do this, hold the Power and Home Buttons down at the same time. Wait several seconds, until the Apple logo appears on the screen, and then let go.
On an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, a hard reset is performed by pressing and holding the power button and volume down button together for several seconds until the you see the Apple logo appear on the display.
To hard reset an iPhone 8 or newer model, press and release the volume up button, press and release the volume down button, then press and hold the side button until the screen goes black and the Apple logo appears on the center of the display.
A hard reset abruptly stops all of the background processes on your iPhone and can cause software issues. It usually doesn’t, but it’s a good idea to only do a hard reset when you need to.
My iPhone Touch Screen Still Isn’t Working!
Is your iPhone touch screen still giving you problems? It might be time to try restoring your iPhone to its original settings. Before you do this, be sure to backup your iPhone. You can do this by plugging your iPhone into a computer and running iTunes (PCs and Macs running Mojave 10.14), Finder (Macs running Catalina 10.15), or using iCloud.
I recommend performing a DFU (Default Firmware Update) restore. This type of restore is a bit more thorough than a traditional iPhone restore. To do this, you’ll need your iPhone, a cable to plug it into the computer, and the most recent version of iTunes.
When Your Touch Screen Hardware Is To Blame
If you’ve dropped your iPhone recently, you may have damaged the screen. A cracked display is one of the most obvious signs of a damaged screen and can cause all sorts of issues with the touch screen.
A drop can also loosen or damage the delicate under-layers of your iPhone touch screen. What you see and put your hands on is just one part of the touch screen. Underneath, there’s an LCD screen that creates the images you see. There’s also something called a digitizer. The digitizer is the part of the iPhone that senses your touch.
The LCD screen and digitizer both connect to your iPhone’s logic board — that’s the computer that makes your iPhone work. Dropping your iPhone can loosen the cords that connect the LCD screen and digitizer to the logic board. That loose connection can make your iPhone touch screen stop working.
The MacGyver Solution
When iPhones get dropped, the tiny cables that connect to your iPhone’s logic board can become dislodged just enough for the touch screen to stop working, even if there’s no physical damage. It’s a longshot, but you may be able to fix your iPhone’s touch screen by pressing down on the part of the display where the cables connect to the logic board.
Warning: Be careful! If you press down too hard, you could crack the display — but this may be one of those “nothing left to lose” situations.
The iPhone touch screen is a complex and interesting technology.
