New iOS 12 update appears to fix known 11-inch iPad Pro 2018 screen issue
If you were asked to name a disadvantage of the 2018 iPad Pro line, it could be its unfortunate, documented risk of bending in response to even low levels of pressure in some cases. However, those who own these Apple tablets have also sometimes noticed that their displays have touch-sensitivity issues. This, apparently, particularly applies to the 11-inch model, in which the application of a screen protector throws off its ability to register this form of input accurately.
Complaints to this effect can be found on Reddit and on the Apple Communities website. However, the former platform has also recently been updated with reports that a recent version of iOS (12.2) apparently fixes this problem. A post submitted by the user nezia has noted that touch input on the 11-inch iPad Pro had improved 'significantly' after installing this update.
The touch-responsiveness issue seen in 2018 iPad Pros have had few definitive solutions prior to this. Some users have resorted to soft resets in order to resolve the issue, whereas others have found that keeping a grip on one side of this slate's metal frame helps (thus suggesting some kind of underlying grounding issue with this hardware). Either way, it is to be hoped that iOS 12.2 has put this problem to bed for all affected users going forward.
