The problem occurs when users notice a flickering grey bar at the top of the screen and then find it completely unresponsive.

Repair specialists say it's just a matter of time before nearly all 6 models experience the issue.

Some media outlets are reporting that Apple will fix the problem if your phone is under warranty.
