Touch IC is happening on the iPhone 6 / 6+, it does not affect 6S/6S+ (Looking on the Discussion Board, some started experiencing it as easry as late Oct, mid Nov 2014...but most likely those phones were replaced under the warranty)

I have the 2014 far I haven't had problems. Some said it goes back to the original "bending" problem. (So..avoid putting phone in back pocket, get a *sturdy case, "just avoid bending or any stress on it," etc.) But I've seen articles stating after age, just normal "wear and tear" this issue can pop up. Not a cheap or easy fix either.

I'm facing a similar problem like touch disease on my iPhone 6 ,But i don't have any screen flicking on the top. A restart solves the issue for a few hours.. how do i confirm its touch disease or something else?

Apple is in denial mode. They knew the problem exist but refuse to service its customer.

The very fact that Apple changed the way Touch IC soldiered on the logic board means Apple knows the problem.

Same **** as MacBook Pro graphic card problem. Once enough people pays for repairs and Apple made enough money out of these poor customers, they will offer free repairs.

iphone 6 was just not very well made.
it made great profits though.
from bendgate to the shifting facetime camera to this touch issue (which is brought about by bend gate, and not shielding the chips)

I'm not even convinced I love this phone. The best iPhone ever made was the iphone 4s in my opinion. i LOVED that phone.
