Apple’s latest iOS 11.3 software update is causing iPhone 8 devices that have had screens repaired by third-parties to stop working.

Owners that chose a third-party vendor to repair their iPhone screen over Apple, have seen their touchscreen stop working after updating to iOS 11.3.

Affected users said the display on their iPhone 8 continued to show the homescreen. But after updating to iOS 11.3 it could not be interacted with.

Michael Oberdick, CEO of iPhone repair and pre-owned store iOutlet, said his firm had previously decided against fixing iPhone 8s.

He said: “We don’t even do the 8 repairs this year, on purpose.

“I had a really good feeling that something like this was going to happen again.”

Last year a similar thing happened with the iPhone 7.

Apple later released a follow-up software update which made the touchscreens work again and resolved the issue.

So far, Apple have not commented on the claims.
