Microsoft Lumia 535 on verge of getting an update to repair its issue with touchscreen sensitivity
Back in December, we told you that the touchscreen on the Microsoft Lumia 535 was too sensitive. Because of the problem, using multi-touch had become an issue. At the time we enlightened you about the problem, we also told you that Microsoft was aware of the issue and was feverishly working on a fix. We are happy to report that the fix is coming any day now, in the form of an OTA update being sent to the Microsoft Lumia 535.

We usually tell you when expecting an OTA update to download and install it while connected to a Wi-Fi signal. We also tell you to make sure that your battery is at least 50% charged before starting the updating process. Both suggestions make sense. Why waste your precious data allowance on an update? And if your phone were to flatline in the middle of updating because of a dead battery, your handset could get bricked.

With the issue here being the screen, Microsoft has another request for you. "Please wait for the software update coming OTA in the next few days, install it and verify touch performance, ensure your screen is clean and moisture-free," demands the software giant.

As it turns out, this could be part of a larger update to Windows Phone 8.1.1 (version 14234) which has been spotted on a number of Lumia models including the Nokia Lumia 930

Yes, no way they would urge their customers multiple times to buy stuff they already knew they were not going to keep supporting, like Windows Phone 7 or Windows RT.
