    Not sure what’s going on with my iPhone X iOS 12 screen. Out of the blue it started to stop scrolling in Safari and would freeze. If I held my finger (not touching the screen) above the home screen over an App it would open the folder and random app next to it. On the Reddit App I could hold my finger over links without touching the screen and it would open links. This happened on and off over a few hours.

    I restarted a few times and it worked ok then it would start up again. I’ve reset my modem and phone again and it’s working ok at the moment. Was my iPhone compromised in some way? I’ve never had this problem before. Or is my screen about to go? Any ideas? Thanks!

    I have a 6s Plus and Safari is freezing very often. Home Button doesn’t work too during the freeze.

    It’s a problem with your display registering ghost touches. Take it to an apple store to get the display replaced.

    Thanks Chazzle. That explains it. However, it is intermittent and can sometimes go for hours before it starts this behavior. And then when it starts it can randomly go away. I’m not sure how to get the Apple store to fix the display if it doesn’t display the problem when I schedule an appointment?

    Almost for sure they run diagnostics and can tell if something is off.

    Great, thanks everyone for your help. I’ll take it in, and let them figure it out.
