Fixing an Unresponsive iPhone 5 Touch Screen

Lots of users are complaining of several issues with the iPhone 5, one of the most common of which is an unresponsive touch screen. At times, the screen would be entirely unresponsive, or would register a touch where the user didn’t even touch the display. Here are a few tips to deal with the problem.
Restart the phone – When a certain application fails to stop completely and puts the phone in a gridlock, it may be necessary to restart the entire phone by pressing the power switch until the red slide bar appears.
Reset the phone – If the phone wouldn’t respond well to a restart (which is pretty rare), resetting the phone will be important. However, unlike the normal shutdown process, resetting involves turning off the phone rapidly by pressing the power switch and the home button simultaneously until the Apple logo shows up and fades away.
Restoring with iTunes – In the absolutely far-off event that none of the aforementioned methods worked, the phone can be connected to a computer with iTunes. Upon opening iTunes, a person can select the “Restore” option from the Summary tab. If the phone isn’t detected by iTunes, forcing the device into recovery is a remaining possibility.
Call a Pro – Truth be told, a professional would be better trained in dealing with an unresponsive touch screen. Aside from eliminating the hassle, taking a faulty screen to a pro can avoid further damage to the phone as a whole.
