    Hey there guys! Basically I was just wondering if anyone out there has experienced their iPhone squeaking or creaking at all at any point? Specifically when I touch down on one side of the screen it sounds as if it is 'creaking' back up as I lift my finger. The strange thing is that this is completely new and I have had the iPhone for several months now. I was wondering if this is something normal, or something which would warrant a trip to my nearest Apple Store (1 hour away)? Thanks, :)

    Add this to the list with the other 999 million things wrong with the iPhone 5's build quality, and why WE DON'T WANT AN iPHONE 5S. We want a redesigned iPhone.

    Yeah this should go away after a while but if it doesn't you could run it down to the apple store and see if they will help you out.

    Creaky iPhone 5?

    I had this problem with my first iphone 5, so I had it replaced. The top right corner near the power button had a small gap between the chamfer and the glass, you could clearly see the inside, and once pressed, would make a creaky feel.

    Also, I don't get the two posters above me saying 'it'll go away after a while'. How? It'll just magically cure itself despite being an inanimate object? You guys probably just stopped noticing it after a while, is what happened. Just have it replaced if it bothers you op.

    Thanks bud, that was a lot more helpful! I'll see how it goes and if it gets any worse or bothers me I'll just head down to Apple, just that this being my 3rd different iPhone 5 I'd rather not have anymore issues! xD

    well, mine wasn't as pronounced as yours. I just had the creaking, no visual space or gap. It seems like an adhesive issue for my issue and it eventually bonded.

    I had the same issue on my previous iPhone 5 (replaced due to different issue) and my current one. It is annoying, but I only really notice it when playing games at night when it's quiet. Otherwise, when reading, browsing etc it's fine.

    The rest of the phone is great so can't really be bothered to go to the Apple Store.

    Do you use an otterbox case? My case makes the phone creak but its really the case that's creaking. It's the plastic rubbing up on the rubber. Also I noticed these cases leave some nasty smudges on the phone, I'm not going to be purchasing a new one in the future.
