For those who are not aware of the significance of Apple's special red handset, the portion of every sale of the device will go to the non-profit organization, The Global Fund, which has made a great contribution over the years in fighting HIV and AIDS. But the scarlet shade is even more gorgeous in glass than it was in the aluminum red that Apple debuted with the iPhone 7 past year. According to a report in Motherboard, the touch functionality on iPhone 8 smartphones with third-party screens worked fine before the update.

Apple released iOS 11.3 at the very end of March, and the update is reportedly killing touch functionality in iPhone 8s that have been repaired with third party screens. The new handsets are available for pre-order now, and would hit the store shelves on April 13th in the USA and a few other countries.

As of now, if your iPhone 8/ 8 Plus is suffering from the same issue, then it's advisable to get your phone checked at an authorised Apple service centre.
