hi. I don't know if it's an hardware or software issue. On my iPhone X running 12.1.4 the swipe down gesture from the top right corner to access control center suddenly went missing. All I can access is notifications. The issues is the same for lock screen and unlocked operation.

Any ideas what is going on?

Yes

It seems to be a hardware issue. Control center works in landscape mode using a different "corner"

I’m having this same issue. Swipe down for Notification Center doesn’t work. Swipe from the right corner for Control Center doesn’t work. Tap the top when browsing a webpage to go to the top doesn’t work. When the time is highlighted in red, blue, or green for things like going back to a phone call doesn’t work either.

It seems that the top part of the screen just isn’t registering touches at all. This started last night and I had time today to reset all my content and settings hoping for a fix to no avail. Let me know if you figure anything out. If nothing happens soon I’ll probably head to the Apple Store in a week or so when I get a chance. Coincidentally my phone recently installed 12.1.4. I’m using an iPhone XS.

Mine works, but I get the odd no response from that corner when waking (not unlocking) the device. I could have 4-5 failed swipe downs, but then it works & continues to for days until it happens again. o_O

I just got my phone back last week. There was some display malfunction. I had to go into the Apple Store and they sent my phone in for repair and gave me a loaner iPhone 8. It took about 5 days. They replaced the screen, the front camera/face ID part, a connector, and the battery. All covered under Apple Care. It works great now.

Mine is an iPhone XS, not an X like the original post was asking about.

It should be covered by the 1year warranty not apple care
