When you encounter issues with your iPhone, there is a tendency that you run a few tests by restarting the device, among other things. When the problem persists, you often feel frustrated, particularly when your iPhone’s touch screen ceases to work.
Here are a few things that you need to do when your iPhone’s touch screen will cease to respond when swiping your fingers across it. But first, you have to figure out why it has stopped working in the first place.
You should know that this part of the device stops working when the digitizer stops working correctly. This can also happen when the software stops communicating to the hardware. Basically, the problem can be related to hardware or the software or both.
Turn the iPhone off and on again when you repeatedly encounter this problem. But this should be difficult to do when you can’t have your touch screen to respond. Therefore, you need to do a hard reset.
- Hold the Home and Power buttons down simultaneously. After a few seconds, you can see the Apple logo that would appear on the screen. That is the time you need to let go of the buttons you held earlier.
- iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, and 8 Plus models migth require you to hold down the Power and the Volume down buttons simultaneously for several seconds.
- When the Apple logo shows itself on the screen, release the buttons right away.
Remember that the hard reset can stop the processes in the background. This can also cause software issues. Therefore, you have to do a hard reset only when you need to. You can also choose to restore your iPhone to the original settings. But make sure that you have a backup of your information and settings using the iCloud or iTunes.
