I recently upgraded to the iPhone 13 Pro. I’ve not yet experienced any touch issues. On my XR, iOS 15 was rather laggy at times but that went away with 15.2. In what situations are you still having touch issues?
There are 2 aspects to the touch registration issue. Sometimes when you try to select an object on the screen, the object will show highlighted and not react, requires a second touch. Touching the display to wake the screen requires a second press to wake the display. The other touch registration issue is the *no touch* touch issue. This happens when your finger is very close to the display and the display registers the touch but you have not quite touched the display. I have reported both to Apple and they are aware of the issues. When this will be fixed is anyones guess.

My only complaint with CarPlay is that sometimes it's quick loading wirelessly, sometimes it's slow and then every once in a blue moon it just doesn't connect without a phone restart.

Am reading elsewhere it includes a fix for CarPlay, which is good because that's been pretty buggy of late IMHO.
