iPhone 6 touch non-responsive after screen replacement

HI, i was given an iPhone 6 for a screen replacement. i was told the touch was not working correctly and we replaced the screen. after that the touch still did not work but i have noticed a bend on the device. i have included pictures. i am thinking possibly touch IC disease and i know it affected iPhone 6 Plus but maybe there are some iPhone 6's that are affected too. either way the phone is useless and i don't know what else to think of to do.

Ouch...that's not a nice thing to see. There are worse of course but this is still pretty bad.

You are correct, Touch Disease is mainly the iPhone 6Plus but it does happen on the 6 as well, especially phones that were bent. The Cumulus/Meson IC's will need to be reballed and some of the smaller traces will have to be properly checked for integrity. On the 6 Plus, it turned out that the M1 trace was flaky because it was a very short trace, right along the "fault line" of the bend. There are a few traces like that on the 6 but not M1.

well i hope the owner of the phone has it backed up to icloud cause i am going to suggest to him to simply get a new phone. at this point there is not much else that can be done and he simply just needs to get a new phone. if he has icloud backups then he can restore his latest backup of this phone and it would be like he had the same phone. none the less at least this screen change went without a problem due to my new Ifixit Pro Tech Toolkit.


There are lots of micro-solderers who can repair this at a reasonable cost. It's up to the owner to decide but this phone shouldn't just be till has a lot of value.


but is it worth spending lots of money to repair it? he just spent 20$ on the screen and i am getting paid 20$ for the change. 40$ total but still cheaper than the 100$ other repair places would charge.


Only the owner can decide that. If they would rather invest the money in a new phone then that's a valid issue. My point is that the phone still has value on the resale market, a proper fix can make it more valuable.


i will put a note in the bag so when the owner sees it he can decide. This is the first phone that i have seen with the touch IC disease. I really hope he has this phone backed up to icloud other wise he is going to have a hard time getting his contacts and other stuff off.
