    screen light leak upper right corner. Anybody else dealing with this? Worth it to take it back? LOL would they even have stock to replace it? Will it fix itself?

    Call Apple and let them know, then set up an Appt at the Genius bar. Going in without an appt today would be like walking into the pits of hell. Also make sure you're getting a brand new phone, and not a refurbished 5 when they replace it. Lightleaks = Automatic Replacement at Apple.

    They generally set aside phones for replacements. Not sure if you will get a brand new retail box one or the ones that come in the little black plastic box.

    Same thing, but I think I'm gonna wait until the demand dies down a bit before I do anything about it. It'll give me a chance to see how well the thing holds up without a case.

    So, let's figure out if this is model/size/color specific, shall we?

    Mine is a 64gb Black AT&T model.


    My friend with a black 16gb sprint model says he doesn't have any light leaks.

    I have a different light issue. I can see light coming thru in a crevice between the screen and the metal band, right below the sleep/wake button. Anyone else see that?

    i dont suppose there's any chance these leaks will go away? maybe glue needs to dry? that probably doesn't make any sense in this case, huh?

    It is same with me. I bought it on 22 Saturday, got it replaced today. But still second replaced set has same issue.

    Let me know if you are able to get the replace and correct handset.

    Light leak?

    Is the top of the lock screen suppose to be look like this? Ie. gray band in pictures... Seems strange.

    I have an iPhone 5 64GB White.
