APPLE WILL FIX IPHONE 6 PLUS DEVICES WITH 'TOUCH DISEASE'
The tech company is rolling out a repair program to fix iPhone 6 Plus devices with unresponsive touchscreen features. The term "Touch Disease" refers to the touchscreen issues that surface after the phone undergoes stress, like being dropped on the floor several times. In many cases, iPhone users have complained the touchscreen will entirely stop working for several months. In August, repair site iFixit discovered that the issue stemmed from faulty chips inside the devices. When the phone is dropped or bent, the chips become loose. At the time, iFixit called the issue "Touch Disease" -- and it was quickly adopted by the internet. Now, the company is willing to repair affected devices for $149 -- as long as your screen isn't cracked and the phone is in working order.
