The forum member of the OnePlus said that the update has been released and it has the fix. One of the forum members said:
"Everyone with touchscreen issues should try Flashing latest cyanogenmod 12.1 nightly. I just wiped dalvik/cache/system and flashed the rom, so i didn't lose any app). This is because they kinda fixed it by adding something related to the touchscreen,"
Do take note of another thing. If the update does not cure the issue, you are advised to wait for the final firmware to arrive that will have the fix. Since the final update is still in the research and development phase, it would be best if one waited. Another post on the forum stated:
Update 15 May: The new firmware is ready and under testing. Early signs are very encouraging for the small amount of users who have been having touchscreen issues. If after the update you still face issues, our support team is on standby ready to help!"
