So after I had to take back my iPM4 for cracking noises when picking it up, I received a unit with a faulty and loose home button, so I took that in... Turns out Apple knows about this. I was worried maybe I'm crazy or being too anal, but neither my iPhone, iPod, nor my iPad Air 2 had this issue at all. The employee inspected it and told me "no, you're not crazy," as he could feel and see the problem too. Then when when he was putting in the reason for exchange/return on his little device, it asked if it was hardware, and one of the first reasons it asked was... "faulty home button?" He said Apple told employees to be specific if it was this particular problem. I guess I'm not the only one? He offered to exchange it once more, so we opened another mini to check, and it had the same issue, so I did a full return. I was really enjoying the device but I didn't want to play the exchange game 3x, especially if the problem would most likely be the same if I exchanged again. So I'll just get the Pro and maybe wait a few months to see if the mini 4 is ever actually fixed by Apple. It's obviously not a HUGE deal, (and I AM NOT SAYING "run and take back your iPad Mini 4.") I'm only pointing out that there is apparently a QC issue with a few iPad mini 4s. I returned mine because it did hinder some functions (and to be honest it was annoying too.) It's obviously not good paying for faulty hardware. I just hate having to return or exchange something to any store. *le sigh... I really did like the look and design of that guy too. :/ Kal.
