    Lately (as in the past week or so), my phone hasn't been working very well when I tap on apps or on the camera. I thought it was because my screen was dirty, but this isn't the case. I've cleaned it several times and while it works just after it's cleaned, it becomes non-reactive shortly after. It's getting a little annoying and I don't really want to get a new phone now as my contract expires this fall (when the 7/7Plus comes out). Has this happened to anyone else? My husband, who has the same phone, does NOT have this problem.

    No I can't say that I've experienced that. Just for grins, have you tried rebooting your phone?

    I have the same problem on one of mine. It is a 16 gig with very little available space and has a replacement screen so I have attributed the non responsiveness at times to one of those characteristics.

    It works after rebooting, but after a bit, sensor issues sometimes come up again. Maybe it's a 9.2.1 thing like another poster said. If it's indeed a screen issue, then the problem shouldn't come and go.

    Ah then have you contacted Apple Support? They might be able to assist.

    Same exact issue on my iPhone 6 Plus. I have to shut off the screen and turn it back on and then sometimes it works, other times I have to keep doing that. Then it'll work for days before having the same issue, i'm on 9.3 PB7 and it's persisted since before the betas.

    I took it to the Apple store, and surprise, it worked just fine, but since i'm out of the standard warranty I'd have to pay to replace it. Figure I can suffer it out until the 7 releases... But it is insanely annoying.
