After restarting the phone, the touch function and Touch ID function did not respond at all. The fault may be caused by software problems or hardware problems.

Now we need to check iPhone motherboard. Disassemble the iPhone XS, remove the iPhone XS screen. Use Fluke 17B+ Multimeter to measure the resistance value of the iPhone motherboard touch connector, when measured the 28 Pin, the value is 0, which is abnormal.
