Have you noticed a strange gray bar at the top of your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus screen.  Has the touch sensitivity on your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus just stopped working all together? We’ve noticed it too.  And so have a lot of other people, including the folks at Apple.

What’s causing this issue?

Remember #bendgate?  Very shortly after the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was released, there were reports and videos galore about the frame of the iPhone frame bending with relative ease.  As a result, after the prolonged use and bending of the iPhones over the course of a year or two, there are two IC chips in charge of regulating the touch that are failing.

So what is Apple doing about these Gray Bars of Death?

You would think that with a problem taking up nearly 30% of all Genius Bar appointments for iPhone 6 Plus, and over 10% for the iPhone 6, Apple would do something about it. Unfortunately, if you take it to the Apple store, while they do in fact acknowledge the problem, and tell you that it’s fairly common, they tell you “sorry you can either buy a new phone, or pay the out of warranty repair.”

So what are we looking at for an out of warranty cost?  On the iPhone 6 Apple charges $299 to replace the device, and on the iPhone 6 Plus they charge $329.  And what about your data?  It’s gone.  But it doesn’t have to be.
