iPhone recall - touch issue

Apple activates iPhone 6 Plus repair program to address 'touch disease'
Apple MacBook Pro13" Retina Touch: 2.9ghz/16GBs/1TBSSD
Apple Thunderbolt Cinema 27", Matias Wireless Full size Keyboard
Datto S3X1 1TB SSD w/offsite cloud protection for time machine, Apple MagicPad2, Moshi Keyboard cover ( to catch the drool when surfing rumor sites )
Government jobs / work places : it smells like wet dogs, so do some people that work there. Everyone moves like they were injured!, It's like a low budget rehab centre

Blaming it on "multiple drops on a hard surface". That's rich. It's a manufacturing defect. I've watched a video recorded by a tech that took one apart to show exactly where the flaw is.

Happens more with the 6 Plus if it gets a slight bend and puts stress on the component which causes the issue. Sure, a small drop can cause it as well, but it's a manufacturing defect that's to blame here.

They should accept responsibility for the defect and fix the affected iPhones for free, same as they do with the faulty rear camera sensor.

EDIT: here's one of the videos I watched that explains it well:

This is a better video that explains the problem:

There sure must be a lot of users dropping their iPhones onto hard surfaces as we all know that Apple can usually do no wrong, no wrong, no wrong… 'cause Sir Jony Ive tells us so, tells us so, tells us so, tells us so…. sigh….

What a crock. If I had one of the affected phones I'd be livid.
