iPhone 6 Touch Screen Issues Surface *Updated*

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones may be exhibiting a hardware problem where the touch screen stops responding and eventually the phone has to be repaired or replaced. I say "may", because from the article here it all seems a bit anecdotal with no firm numbers.  It sounds like a potentially severe issue if the nature and scope of the problem are being accurately described, and it does show up in Apple forums.

*update* - this is now being reported by Apple Insider as accounting for 11% of Apple's daily service issues, so yes, it's a big deal
Nicknamed "Touch Disease" by repair specialists iFixit, the problem starts with a flickering gray bar at the top of the screen and reduced touch functionality. Over time the bar spreads and eventually the whole screen stops responding to touch.
iFixit spoke to several repair professionals who confirmed they had seen numerous devices exhibiting the same flaw.
