iPhone 8 Touchscreen Suddenly Stop Working? Your Aftermarket Screen is to Blame

iphone 8 touchscreen not working

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8s are some of the most popular Apple products on the market today. That is why it’s no surprise that so many people have to replace their screens when they shatter, crack or break. People have flocked to kiosks across the country promising iPhone 8 screen repair at a fraction of the cost of other companies.

Forever Wireless specializes in iPhone 8 screen repair!

Why the Difference in Price?

When it comes to replacing the screen on your iPhone 8, you have two choices. First, you can go with a high-quality product that is guaranteed to be compatible with your iPhone 8. These replacement screens are ordinarily more expensive but will perform the same as the screen did when you first bought it from an Apple retailer.

The second option is to have an aftermarket, or copy screen put on your phone. These screens are designed to mimic Apple replacement products but are much lower quality. Most mall kiosks that promise low-cost iPhone screen replacements use aftermarket or copy screens without giving you the option of going with a higher quality screen.

The Problem

When the iOS update 11.3 came out, many iPhone 8 users with these aftermarket/copy screens discovered that their touchscreens were no longer working. Frustrated, they returned to the mall kiosks where their screens were repaired only to be told that the problem was in their phone (the motherboard). Since then, articles have been popping up everywhere from Mashable to Newsweek claiming that if you have your iPhone 8’s screen repaired by any third party, 11.3 will turn it into a brick.

Not true.

The Forever Wireless Difference

At Forever Wireless, we always offer two options to consider when replacing your iPhone screen. The one you choose will depend on how the device is going to be used once it is repaired. If you are planning on keeping your iPhone for more than two weeks, we suggest replacing your screen with the same quality part as your original. Not only does this screen come with a warranty that covers any defects for one year, but it also allows you to rest assured that you will not be faced with the same problem, so many iPhone 8 users are dealing with right now.

Forever Wireless always gives their customers the knowledge they need to make the most informed decision when replacing their iPhone screen.

We also carry aftermarket screens or what we like to call “mall kiosk screens.” These break much easier due to lower quality glass, they tend to use the battery much faster than their original counterpart, and they do not last as long. If you are turning around and selling your device or are turning it into your carrier, this option is appealing for its low price. Even then, none of the aftermarket screens carried or installed by Forever Wireless were affected by the most recent iOS update. We only carry quality replacement parts that are manufactured by trusted companies.

For more information on aftermarket screens or to schedule your screen replacement for your iPhone 8, call Forever Wireless today. We would love to turn your brick back into a working device.
