iPhone 6 Touch Disease Threatens Consumer Trust In Apple Quality
Apple is known for its premium products and where the word premium is used you expect nothing short of the best quality on the market. While Apple is one of those companies, it seems that the iPhone 6 touch disease could threaten consumer confidence in Apple being a premium device maker. What is this iPhone 6 touch disease you ask? Let’s talk about that.
If you find a flickering grey bar on the top of your iPhone 6 screen then you are in tough luck. Your screen will become unresponsive and it seems that even Apple support is unable to fix this issue. This is called the iPhone 6 touch disease. If you have this problem then you have no other option but to get another phone.
iFixit claims that the iPhone 6 touch disease is a widespread problem and that it is only a matter of time before other people using the device face the same problem. Besides that, other third party repair specialists have also reported this issue and the fact that it is rendering devices useless.
Jason Villmer, owner of STS Telecom says:
“This issue is widespread enough that I feel like almost every iPhone 6/6+ has a touch of it (no pun intended) and are like ticking bombs just waiting to act up.”
Jason Villmer claims that he sees several devices with the iPhone 6 touch disease every day. This is a very unfortunate time for such an issue to come up as the upcoming Apple iPhone is due to launch next month. This report will no doubt have an effect on consumer perspective regarding Apple and whether or not the company is capable of making a phone that works.
With the launch of the upcoming iPhone just around the corner, I am sure this report will dent the sales and reputation of the company. Having an issue like this can be upsetting especially if there is no solution to the problem at hand.
