After Screen Replacement, iPhone location is no longer precise.

I took my iPhone to a repair shop yesterday, due to my LCD being damaged. The entire screen was replaced and now I’m noticing my phone’s location is incorrect and not precise like it was prior to getting it fixed. Does anyone know what could be the issue? Is it something I can fix or do I need to take it back to them?

I would take it back to the shop. they need to inspect and double check their work as they may have accidentally damaged something while doing the repair. Two of the three sensor IC’s are located in close proximity to the screen connectors so it’s not impossible that they could be damaged. They would also need to check the flexes for damage and insure they put the proper screws in their proper locations.

They may have messed with screws. They may put wrong screws into wrong locations.

That may be software glitch. You can try force restart or update your iOS. Thanks
