    I just noticed mine rattles when I shake it. Is it normal? I don't think it was like that before. It has been naked since box opening

    Question. Why are you shaking you iPhone?

    No looser than my 4 and 4s were. Which is to say, if you shake to undo you will feel a slight rattle. But that is normal.

    LOL, sorry I wasn't clear......I first heard it when I took it out of my pocket and placed by ear for a call.....

    THEN I started to shake it to replicate it.....

    I see.... I don't remember any rattles from my 4 and 4S days.....but I guess it still works perfectly so not worth going into the Apple store for...

    Some rattle a bit, some don't. Either way, it's not really a problem. Most iphones rattle internally anyway (camera lens).

    Hold your power button steady and shake the phone, you'll probably still hear a small rattle inside. If it's a big thud though, then you have a battery issue being loose (my first iPhone 5).

    I had this issue on my old iPhone 4. iPhone 5 home button works well.

    Mine is definitely rattling. A little annoying but something I can surely live with and not think any less of my iPhone 5.
