According to Apple, some iPhone 11 units will stop responding to touches due to problems with the display module. These devices were manufactured between November 2019 and May 2020. If you notice that your screen touch response is faulty, there is some hope. First of all, use the serial number query tool to check whether your device meets the conditions of this program. If the conditions are met, Apple or Apple-authorized service providers will provide free maintenance services.

According to reports, this is a global repair plan thus you may want to check if your device qualifies. If you experience an issue with the screen touch and your device qualifies for free repairs, do the following

  • Find an Apple-authorized service provider.
  • Make an appointment at an Apple retail store.
  • Contact Apple Support to arrange mailing service through the Apple Repair Center.

Furthermore, if your device has more than just touch-screen issues, you may have to pay a fee. The fee will be for other issues (if any) that have no connection with the touch screen. Furthermore, it will be easier to get this free service at the place of purchase. This may actually be a problem for many users. In addition, if this issue affected your phone and you have paid for repairs, you can contact Apple for a refund.
