Why Is My Phone Glitching?

My iPhone 5c keeps glitching, as if the keyboard has a mind of its own. I can't use any apps properly and it takes me ages to type a three letter word. It takes me onto apps that I dont even want to use. Sometimes it wont even let me put my passcode in.

I recently got my phone repaired and a couple months later it starts to play up doing all the things above...

I would try a new screen as Jason suggests but keep in mind that the iPhone 5C is known for suffering from logic board failures, usually micro-fractures, due to flexing. The plastic case is relatively weak, compared to the 4 and 5 series aluminum phones. These fractures are hard to see and they typically occur in the area of the board that has the backlight and Touch circuits.

So if the screen replacement doesn't work, that is probably the issue.

It's called ghost touching. You would ideally need to replace the assembly on the device to eliminate the issue.

Make sure to go to a repair shop where the quality of the screens are A quality. Alot of repair shops like to skimp on quality to turn a profit so do your research first!
