Accidental Touch

What if it's the accidental touch feature activating when you touch the edges as you scroll up and down/diagonally?

Who the F ever scrolls like that anyhow?

I suppose this could be an issue in some games where you have to swipe really fast but even still. If it works properly on the 4, but not the 5 though they should definitely fix this up for the '5s'.

Defective models? I've replicated his test on my iPhone 5, but had no issues at all.

Is this really a problem? I've never done this with any of my iPhones?

Wonder if the iPad mini has this issue.

Soooooo... When do you ever actually need to do this?

If Apple comes back and says 'you're scrolling it wrong', I'd actually support them on that.

I don't think Apple has anyone whose wrists can swipe at mach 3 like the dude in the clip.

Just wildly diagonally scrolled on my email - had no issue. It wildly followed my finger back and forth.

It's probably a bug in the driver for the new InCell screen. Hardware issue seems unlikely. Is the screen building up static charges that need time to drain?

Not an engineer, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night. Seems like a hardware issue. Since it takes several fast swipes to reproduce, it probably is a buffer input output problem due to the speed of the swipes.
Anyone have a more technical background that sheds light into touch screen input/output processing and buffering delays?

Very astute. I noticed it stopped responding the first time I tried, but every subsequent time it was able to follow my ridiculous swiping. I think I may have swiped too far (off the screen) and triggered the accidental touch - hadn't thought of that until you said it, but it makes perfect sense.

Maybe not so silly for a game that relies on this kind of input. If you're a developer you basically have to not develop that game.

Wow, you really are new to the Apple world, aren't you? QC issues have been present before Jobs' death. Things seemed to really start sliding with the move to Intel. Not that Intel itself is to blame, but it started around that time. So no, it is not "typical, post Jobs" at all.

Non-issue.

This is actually the new palm detection that everyone has been talking about for the iPad mini, but it's also in these devices as well. Since the screen is bigger, reaching the far edges with your thumb is difficult to do without your palm touching the screen.

The reason scrolling diagonally triggers it is because occassionally his finger gets close to the edge where palm touches will be ignored.

I can't say I've noticed, even after trying the technique in the video. If anything, the iPhone 5 touchscreen seems more sensitive to me.
