The issue mainly crops up when using the multi-touch functionality, like when typing using the Swype keyboard. The overall touch sensitivity on the smartphone is also poorer than average.
The latest update comes with the build version 02054.00000.14485.370xx and Windows Phone version 8.10.14219.341. You can check for the update manually on your Lumia 535 by going to Settings – Phone Update, or you can visit this link and check for the update on your computer.
