Some new iPhone 13 users have experienced issues with the phone’s touchscreen.

Several users have reported on Twitter, Reddit, and Apple Support forums that their iPhones have touch sensitivity issues – and these issues have presented themselves in many different forms.

Some users report that their iPhones don’t register their input when they tap to wake the Lock Screen.

Other users reported that their iPhones barely register any touch input at all.

Is This an iPhone 13 or an iOS 15 Problem?

Fortunately for iPhone 13 owners, they aren’t the only ones experiencing these problems.

Many other users have reported that they also had this issue right after updating their iPhones to iOS 15.

If that’s the case, Apple can solve this issue with an upcoming software update. However, as of right now, there doesn’t seem to be a clear solution.

This isn’t the only issue that iOS 15 has had. Ever since it was released to the public, various people have pointed out issues regarding the iPhone’s storage, problems with the Apple Watch, and even security issues.

What Can You Do If You Have This Problem?

As mentioned before, there isn’t an actual fix for this issue (yet). But you can try to fix the problem by restarting your iPhone, albeit this might be more of a temporary solution.

Another thing that’s worked for other users is just consistently tapping your iPhone until it responds. It may not be the most elegant solution available, but it’s really the only other thing users can do until Apple fixes this issue.

For now, all we can do is wait patiently for Apple to address this problem in a future software update.
