  • Glitch With iPhone 5 Touch Screen May Pose As Problem for App Developers and Users


    Everyone with an iPhone 5 probably enjoying their four-inch display right about now. Unfortunately, some developers arenít having too much fun with it. According to CMA Megacorp, an app developer in the UK, the iPhone 5 has a touch screen glitch that affects swiping in a diagonal motion very quickly.

    Above is a video from Recombu that demonstrates the iPhone 5 versus the iPhone 4S in terms of this glitch. To try and make the the test as fair as possible, there are two of each iPhone Ė one running iOS 6.0 and one running iOS 6.0.1.

    The iPhone 4S, both on iOS 6.0 and iOS 6.0.1, performs just fine in scrolling up and down in the Mail view. As soon as the spotlight gets put on the iPhone 5, both on iOS 6.0 and iOS 6.0.1, you can see how the display doesnít even register some of the swipes and just goes about its own business in some cases.

    As of this writing, it is not known if the issue is software-based or hardware-based. If it is indeed a software problem, then Apple could easily address it in a future software update. If it were a hardware problem, then Apple would have to ship fixed units from this point forward, which would continue to leave current iPhone 5 customers at a loss.

    Most applications arenít going to require any vigorous swiping like this, but some games do. In games like the Infinity Blade series, where you are swiping diagonally to attack monsters, you may be vigorously swiping to try and inflict as much damage as you can in the shortest amount of time possible. This glitch could make it difficult to win these types of games. In other situations, you may just notice the glitch through normal use, but it will occur very rarely and intermittently.

    Have you noticed Apple's new four-inch display ignoring your swipes lately?

      Looks like my predictions are coming true. Apple are shooting themselves in the foot and its showing. If they keep at it the way they are going in 5 years there will be no iPhones as they would go broke with all their crap they are doing to themselves.
      I am currently working in India. I have to put up with many irritations, such as the weather, dodgy food and mosquitoes. I would gladly suffer all these if you were to get hit by a bus tomorrow(or today preferably) you sad little excuse of an existence!

      Why won't you go away. I can't believe mods have not banned you yet. All you do is troll every news post.

      My Iphone 5's screen completely locks up when either headphones or power cable are plugged in. The screen stops working altogether until a factory hard reset is done.

      That is 100% a problem. I would get that iPhone replaced.
