Look at it this way, the phone sustained damage to some level enough to cause your screen to go bad. The screen has been fixed, but now it’s got issues it didn’t have happen before the incident, right?

Quick iPhone 6S touch screen fix’s

  1. Hard reset your device: Hold down power and home button simultaneously for 20 seconds. The device will turn off and on – just keep holding.
  2. Restore your device through iTunes. You will need to make sure you have a backup of your data before doing this. This will re-install a fresh and most up to date operating system on your device. After Plugging your device into iTunes click the ‘Backup and Restore button in your iTunes dashboard.
  3. If your device has been dropped in the past its likely either the touch i.C chip on the logic board or the digitizer. If its the digitizer playing up this is a quick fix from you local iPhone repair technician. Otherwise your iPhone 6S will need some micro-soldering.

Time to call your iPhone technician

The best and easiest option right now is to try a new screen. This will either confirm or eliminate the screen as the failure point. If it’s not the screen, I’m sorry to say it will likely be damage to the mainboard or failing touch i.c components on the main board.
