How To Fix iPhone 13 Touch Screen Not Working

Apple seems to create a tradition of touch screen issues occurring with their new released iPhone models. Last year, the iPhone 12 mini was released with a day one touch screen problem that was later addressed with the help of a software update.

Some iPhone 12 Pro Max were also affected by touch screen issues!

It looks like Apple will have to pull out the same trick. A iOS 15.0.1 hot-fix update is more needed than ever and the Cupertino-based tech giant could release it as early as today.

In fact, Apple has already started to address some iPhone 13 bugs (Unlock with Apple Watch) in yesterday’s, iOS 15.1 Beta 2 rollout and could easily implement them in a minor unplanned update expected this week. The public release of iOS 15.1, if not rushed, might be only due later on in October.

Temporary Fix: In the meantime the only option is to force restart the iPhone 13 every time the touch screen stops working and becomes unresponsive to repetitive taps!

iOS 15 Touch Screen Issues

It seems that these touch related problems aren’t iPhone 13 exclusive. Other iPhone owners also talk about touchscreen not responding to taps as it should:
Karly, on iPhoneTricks.org mentions this problems along with a fix:

“iPhone 12 pro max here. Phone randomly wouldn’t respond to touch. The only way to fix was press and release Volume Up button then Volume Down button and then hold the Power button down till you see the apple logo then wait for it to reboot.”

Jessie, on Twitter:

I do the IOS 15 update and my touchscreen is struggling… never had that happen.
