Apple has launched a new repair program for iPhone 6 Plus owners who are experiencing problems using their Multi-Touch screens. "Touch disease" — a coined term some people use to describe the issue — has been known to cause several issues with iPhone 6 Plus screens including a gray flickering box at the top of the screen, trouble interacting with the screen, or even a complete failure of the touchscreen.
Apple#mn_e's statement on the new Multi-Touch Repair Program for iPhone 6 Plus is as follows:
"Apple has determined that some iPhone 6 Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device. If your iPhone 6 Plus is exhibiting the symptoms noted above, is in working order, and the screen is not cracked or broken, Apple will repair your device for a service price of $149."
If you have an iPhone 6 Plus with AppleCare+, this won't affect you, but customers whose warranties have expired or never had a warranty, will not have to pay the standard repair price of $329. On top of that, if you already paid for a repair for this issue Apple is offering reimbursements.
"The reimbursement amount will equal the difference between the price you paid for the original service to your iPhone 6 Plus and the $149 service price."
This program is only for the iPhone 6 Plus and not any other models as of right now. For more information, including how to go about getting a repair done visit the Multi-Touch Repair Program for iPhone 6 Plus on apple.com.
