Clean the screen:

Dirt and grime on the screen can cause touchscreen issues, so it's important to clean your iPhone's screen regularly. Use a clean, dry microfiber cloth to gently wipe the screen. Avoid using cleaning agents or liquids, as these can damage the device.

Check for updates.

Another step you can take to fix touchscreen issues is to check for updates. Go to "Settings > General > Software Update" to check for any available updates. If an update is available, be sure to install it to resolve any software bugs that may be causing the problem.

Backup and restore:

If the above methods do not work, you may need to back up and restore your iPhone. This can help to resolve software glitches and restore the device to its original settings. Before you begin, be sure to back up your device to iCloud or iTunes. Then go to "Settings > General > Reset" and select "Erase All Content and Settings." Once the device has been restored, restore your backup to recover your data.
