iFixit Believes Apple Is Accidentally Disabling Touchscreen Functionality on iPhones Repaired by Third-Party Shops
A recent report indicated that the iOS 11.3 update disabled the touchscreen functionality on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X with an aftermarket display. In other cases, the ambient sensor stopped working even when a genuine Apple replacement display was used. It was believed that this was a deliberate move from Apple to sabotage third-party repairs on its latest iPhones. However, iFixit believes that they just might be bugs that Apple will eventually get around to fixing.
