iPhone X, XS, XR Touch Screen Not Working? Fix Now!

In this post, we explain why iPhone X, XS, XR Touchscreen is not working or responding very slowly and how to fix the issue

Are iPhone X, XS, and XR screens not working or responding very slowly? These symptoms usually occur when the phone’s internal memory is shrinking; thus, these symptoms are typically seen on early devices. But new devices aren’t free from showing such flaws as other factors can cause the same symptoms. This includes corrupted files, bad updates, rogue apps, and network connectivity problems like Wi-Fi drops.

When the iPhone X Series (X, XS, XR) launched, we expect to see a few bugs and quirks that cause issues. However, all these factors are software-related, and they can also be remedied at home by some tweaks. This post outlines the most effective workarounds to deal with touchscreen not working or responding.

How to troubleshoot iPhone X Series (X, XS, XR) Touchscreen Problems.

Solution 1: Clear All Background Apps

Sometimes your device’s touchscreen is not responding due to background apps that have gone rogue or corrupted. This is usually when you’ve left multiple apps suspended or running in the background for a long. These apps might have been corrupted and eventually affected other apps and services, thus making the phone perform sluggishly. We suggest you clear all background apps on your iPhone by following the steps below:

  • From the Home screen, swipe your finger up and then pause.
  • Swipe right or left to navigate through the app’s preview.
  • Then swipe up on an app preview to close apps individually until all app previews are cleared.
