CMA Megacorp, game developers, have reportedly spotted a diagonal swiping bug with the iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5G.

iPhone 5 touch screen bug? Slide finger back and forth diagonally on screen, input events drop out or stop altogether.

Recombu put the bug to the test and found touch recognition was indeed affect by high speed scrolling.

The Next Web has surmised that because the glitch is not present on the iPhone 4S, but is also seen on the 5th generation iPod Touch, which uses the same new touch hardware as the iPhone 5, the issue is likely not with iOS 6 and not solved with a simple software update.
Check out the video demonstration below from Recombu, and don't be surprised if the skills of Fruit Ninjas who play on Android begin to far exceed those who slice melons on iOS.
