    hi all, my iphone 5s is acting up, i dont have to touch the screen only hover over something and the phone opens apps. or if im using the keyboard it acts like i have pressed keys, to me it seams like a static interference. i changed the screen but the same issues are present, any ideas? i have no issues opening / soldering / reworking the fone.,

    Sounds like it could be moisture-related, but you don't see that very often. How does it react to a stylus?

    update

    so I re flowed the chip and the issue is still the same,

    its definitely static build up, once grounded the issue disappears

    any ideas how to resolve ?

    Quite a few people are reporting that resetting all settings helps:

    Settings => General => Reset => Reset All Settings

    Presumably it forces recalibration of the digitiser. Others are reporting that they need to perform a full restore of the device, without restoring from backup. Others still are working around the issue by placing a screen protector over it, reducing its sensitivity.
