How to fix touch screen problems on iPhone X
1. Restart your iPhone X
The first method for resolving an unresponsive touch screen on your iPhone X is to restart it. Restarting your cellphone helps solve small problems such as application crashes or software related problems. Unlike restarting the previous model (iPhone 8 and 8+), iPhone X uses a different procedure that we will highlight here. Press and hold the slide button and the Volume Down key at once until you see the Apple Logo. Drag the slider to turn off your iPhone. Leave it on for about 10 to 30 seconds to allow your iPhone X to reboot.
2. Update iOS on your iPhone X
If the first method doesn’t work, you can try updating the iOS software on the iPhone X. You know, software updates are highly recommended by most Smartphone experts because they tend to fix minor problems like bugs or software damage on your iPhone X. If your Smartphone is updated, please follow these steps to update to the latest iOS. Start by backing up your iPhone X to iTunes or to iCloud. Go to Settings >> General >> Software Update. If there is a new software update available, please update to the latest version.

To adjust the touch screen, just open Settings >> General >> Accessibility >> 3D Touch. Drag the available slider to the left and you are done. Next, restart your iPhone X using the procedure in method one (restart your iPhone X) and check whether the problem is resolved.
