[Update: fixed] See for yourself how iOS 11.3 killed touch feature on some iPhone 8/iPhone X units

Update (April 25):

Apple releases iOS 11.3.1 fixing the touch-related issues with aftermarket displays on iPhone 8/X.

Original story:

Apple’s iOS 11.3 was a major release that brought along a lot of bug fixes. However, sadly, it failed to break the trend of software updates introducing new serious problems. To get a feel of how buggy the iOS 11.3 update is, take a look at our collection of iOS 11.3 problems.

One of the severe problems that the update introduced is related to the touch functionality. A lot of users with iPhone 8 or iPhone X units featuring after market displays have been reporting that the update has killed the touch functionality of the display, rendering their devices useless.

And now, folks working at an iPhone repair shop have come up with a full fledged video demonstrating how the update has not only killed the display touch of iPhones with aftermarket displays, but have also introduced multiple other major issues, including those related to the brightness sensor and FaceID.
