    According to the company, some iPhone X displays are experiencing issues with responsiveness due to a display module component. Affected units have a display which is not responding to the touch, in some cases, the display is reacting automatically without being touched at all.

    Apple is ensuring that no need to worry about this problem, customers facing this issue can get a replacement display module from the Apple retail store or authorised service centres. Do not that this is a free replacement program and you are not supposed to play anything to the service providers.

    Right now, the company is unable to check the serial number or the time period which shows when the affected devices were sold. This means display component failure can impact any of your iPhone X. So it's better to replace it with the retail store or get it checked with the store if you are facing any issues with the touch.
