Now that I’ve had a day to use my new iPhone 5, I’ve ran into an oddity. The screen touch sensitivity on the keyboard seems to be less than that on previous iPhones. Specifically around the Q and P key. It’s not terribly insensitive, its just noticeable coming from an older iPhone. What could this be caused by?
Apple is now using in-cell technology in the touch panel, which is the first time it has been used in any phone, so with any new technology, there will be issues and bugs. It’s possible that the in-cell technology is what is causing the decreased screen sensitivity. I am not the only one having this problem, Aaron Baker from PhoneDog is one notable person who is also noticing the decreased sensitivity. He also had one other glitch that a few others have been having.
Is this a software issue or part of the new in-cell technology? Apple has not said anything about the issues, but it is rumored that they have an iOS 6 patch in the works, so maybe we will see these issues dissapear.
To our fans who own the iPhone 5, do you notice any decreased sensitivity or is it just a select few number of phones which are having the problem? Have you seen the static lines on the keyboard? Let us know.
