Read this post and learn what to do when iPhone 6/6s/6 Plus/6s Plus touch screen becomes unresponsive after iOS 14/13/12/11/10/9 upgrade.

Since the release of iOS 9.3/9.2/9.1, a number of iPhone 6/6 Plus owners reported they are having an unresponsive Slide to Upgrade screen on iOS 9. Some other users reported that the iPhone 6/6 Plus screen is frozen after iOS 14/13/12/11/10/9 update. The device does not respond to touch at all, even to ON/OFF. This issue has grabbed a growing number of users on Apple Communities. beerbrewerbrian is one of the iPhone 6 users who run into this kind of screen freeze:

"i grabbed the update on my iphone 6 yesterday, and twice yesterday, my screen was frozen. it would not respond to touch at all. i had to reset twice. anyone else experiencing this? ---- iPhone 6, iOS 9"

Apple has responded to this issue on Sept 20th with a fix to resolve "Slide to Upgrade" frozen after updating to iOS 9. Nevertheless, this is hard to pacify the disappointment the new iOS brought. The fix suggested by Apple needs to restore iPhone 6 which would cause all data and settings on iPhone.
