    Noticed it when unlocking only. Seems it recognizes touch to unlock but the screen is unresponsive. Starts to work eventually, but it happens at least once a day and sometimes sticks around for minutes.
    Anyone else seeing it or having an idea what's fixing it?

    It might be a hardware issue and not jb related.
    Seems like it's very widespread with iPhone 6 and 6 plus models.

    You have 3 months AppleCare still. You should go get it replaced right away.

    Wow, I had no idea I get 3 months added after an exchange. Thanks! I'll call and make an appointment. Wonder if they can test the chip issue over the phone diagnostics.

    Just to chip in that my iPhone 6 Plus on iOS 9.3.3 JB is fine. :)

    Hope you get sorted.

    When you get anything replaced at Apple you get the rest of your original warranty or 3 months, whichever is greater.

    Thanks. Sounds like it's only newer ones cause they cheaped out or something. :(

    Thank god. Getting an appointment at an Applestore is a week lately.

    Well contacted their support on the touch issue and had to get "condescending" for the tech to actually put down I needed a replacement and make an appointment 45 min away in a week. :mad: Sounds like its common from the tech but their told to try and talk people out of replacements or something???? Kinda reminds me of the iPhone 4 bumper debacle. Bets on how long before they cave? lol

    Weird but it's gotten more frequent today and seems to happen mid app too. Going from annoying to really irritating today. Hoping I don't yell if they don't replace this when I go in. :mad:
