Touch disease in devices otger than 6/6+?

I have been fixing iDevices for about 4 years now and I have just now dealt with 2 touch disease phones, a 6 and a 6 plus. I am not learned enough to fix these myself and have asked for quotes for both. It got me thinking though, and I would like to bounce my thought off you.

I have been experiencing a ghosting effect after fixing some iPads. It has happened in all models except the newest. I always test the screen before setting the glue, but the glitch is not always apparent. Sometimes it takes a few days to appear, sometimes it is right away.

I really haven't paid too much attention, I have always thought it was a defect in the new screens, but my screens are from a good source. The two most recent ghosting iPads had bent frames and this journey through 6/6+ touch sickness has me thinking.

**If the weak link in touch screen phones are ic chips and their connection, is it possible that ic chips and connections are the weak link in iPads?**

Nothing is impossible but the Touch Disease issue with iPhone 6/6+ has to do with repeated flexing of the logic board. At least, that is the favoured diagnostic amongst micro-solderers.

Now, if your iPad's were flexed, then it is possible depending on the location of the bend. However, ghost touching in the iPad has more to do with cheap quality digitizers than anything else.
