    So I noticed this morning, my iPhone 6 plus as thin lines, evenly spaced running down my screen, but only on the right hand side...

    Here's a picture:


    You can only see them when it's a dark screen...
    They look like this: || || || || || || ||
    (see between arrows on image).

    Is my digitiser broken? or about to die?
    If so, do you trust the ones of eBay? or best to go to Apple?

    Go to Apple. Honestly these third-party ones are more trouble than they're worth. Without exception, every single person I know who has fitted one has one problem or another after fitting that wasn't previously there. Home button, Wi-Fi, battery, display, touch-input, multitouch, digitiser, camera ... you name it, all issues after fitting a third-party one. Even if the part itself is fine, the phones are just much too fiddly these days to service, far too easy to damage something.

    I will second the vote for taking it to Apple. It will cost more to fix but you know it was done right. Avoid the mall kiosks !
