Over the last few weeks my phone has been driving me crazy with an Unresponsive touch screen. Sometimes pressing the home button is enough to get it working again while other times I have to reboot the phone by pressing the power button and the home button at the same time.

Twice now I've had to boot into recovery mode and restore my iPhone as none of the methods above worked and this is getting annoying. Is anyone else experiencing these issues? Do you think it's hardware or software?

In the mean time I've made an appointment with the Genius Bar on Thursday but if anyone has a fix for this or would be much appreciated.

Over the last few weeks my phone has been driving me crazy with an Unresponsive touch screen. Sometimes pressing the home button is enough to get it working again while other times I have to reboot the phone by pressing the power button and the home button at the same time.
This happens to me sometime too with my iPhone 6 plus 128GB. More than any other iPhones I have had in the past. It's always been resolved by holding the power button and home button... sometimes it taken almost 15-20 seconds for it to restart.

The other problem I have even more often is the control center won't open on the lock screen. Notification center will pull down no problem, and I can type in a pass code. But Control center won't swipe up. Sometime re-locking the phone and then hitting the home button will enable it, but sometimes I have to totally unlock the phone. It drives me crazy when I'm just trying to use the flashlight at night quickly. This happens quite often. A few times every week. I haven't jailbroken this phone so I've just assumed it's a iOS bug just like the constant reloading of safari tabs after error message I see all the time.

Took it into the Genius Bar who replaced the screen twice today and still the same problem. They then told me it's a processor problem and replaced the handset.

I'm having no end of trouble with my iPhone 6+ 128Gb model.
Reboot loops.
Locked out of phone, apps suddenly stop working.
Blue screen reboot in middle of a wechat
Wifi drops out, then settings menu goes blank- literally no options in settings menu-just grey all over screen.
I'm off to Apple Store as soon as I can to demand a refund for a 64gb handset instead.

My 128 demonstrates no such issues. It's probably the phone by and large, not the amount of storage on the phone.
