    Dropped my iphone 5 last night and vertical white stripes appeared on the screen. The touchscreen is also now unresponsive. Is this an issue where I need to get a new screen or could I take it in to Apple and they could fix it for me?

    Looks like when you dropped it you knocked the ribbon cable loose between the logic board and the screen.

    You can try opening it your self and reseating the cable to make sure it is secure.
