Is iOS 11 causing Touch failures on aftermarket iPhone 6S replacement screens?

Update 2017/10/11 - Apple just released iOS version 11.0.3 and it claims to address the Touch Failure on aftermarket screens. For those of you that have been waiting for an official fix, it appears to be here. Make sure to comment below if this update solves your problem.

Is your iPhone 6S touch not working? It’s only been a few days since iOS 11 was released yet already there are more and more reports that upgrading your iPhone 6S can cause your screen to lose Touch functionality. This mainly appears to be affecting the iPhone 6S but there are a few reports of iPhone 7 series screens with the issue. The problem affects users that had their screens replaced with aftermarket (or “copy”) quality screens.

Touch Disease – Systemic failure on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

(Updated March 1st, 2017 - Update on the M1 pad jumper and the possibility that we have a true fix!)

In Apple's ongoing quest to make their devices ever thinner, an unexpected problem crept into the design. The repair community started seeing cases of iPhones that, intermittently, were losing touch functionality. At first, the phone will typically develop intermittent touch control failure. For some phones, a gray/white bar starts appearing at the top of the screen. Twisting and applying pressure in certain spots sometimes allows touch control to work for a short period of time, but eventually, the touch interface ceases to function entirely. Today, it is colloquially known as Touch Disease.

La maladie du toucher – Défaillance systémique sur l'iPhone 6 et 6 Plus

En septembre 2014, Apple a mis sur le marché le nouvel iPhone 6 et 6 Plus se méritant des critiques élogieuses. Dans leur quête continue de rendre leur appareil de plus en plus mince, un problème inattendu s’est faufilé dans la conception. La communauté de réparation a commencé à voir des cas d’iPhone qui, de façon intermittente, perdaient leur fonction tactile. Premièrement, le téléphone développera généralement une perte intermittente des commandes tactiles. Pour certains téléphones, une barre grise/blanche commencera à apparaître au haut de l’écran. Le fait de tordre ou d’appuyer sur certains endroits permet parfois de retrouver la fonction tactile pendant une courte période de temps, mais éventuellement l’écran tactile cessera de fonctionner complètement. Aujourd’hui, ce phénomène est communément appelé « la maladie du toucher » ou « maladie tactile ».
