Apple iPhone 5 Guide
The glitch occurs when scrolling diagonally across the display at speed and causes the iPhone 5 screen to intermittently drop touch input and sometimes freeze altogether.
While the issue doesn't seem to affect iPhone 4S handsets running either iOS 6.0 or 6.0.1, it occurs on iPhone 5 models running both versions of the operating system.
During day-to-day use this niggle won't cause sleepless nights - but the implications for gaming and game developers (who wish to use quick diagonal gestures) could be worrying.
So, if you've experienced any problems with scrolling on your iPhone 5 let us know in the comments box below.
