    So I have been curious with all the issues with "cresentgate" on the 6/6+, has anyone experienced this problem in the 6s/s+? I know my last replacement hasn't had this issue at all leaving me to believe that this issue has been resolved where as my first two had this issue big time. So has anyone seen this on the new S iteration?

    Mine does not, and to be totally honest, this is the first time I've heard of this "crescent gate". :p

    I had it on my 6+ and I expect that it has been resolved on the S models. I hope so!

    Both of the iPhone 6 I received on launch last year had the shifting camera problem. My wife had two replacement 6 and neither one had this problem.

    My 6S+ is fine at the moment.

    Ah, now I remember. I hope that Apple did a better job at securing this little ring on the new models.

    I believe it was resolved on the newer versions of the 6/6+ Cause mine doesn't have this issue so far and it's taken a spill and no sign of a shift.

    It just never ends does it? I think what we have here is "Too Many 'Gate' Threads - Gate".

    Actually it was a legitimate issue that still affects iPhone 6 users like me.

    Anytime someone says "x-gate" I discount the next words that come out of their mouth. I wish people would stop calling everything "x-gate"

    I never said it wasn't legitimate. But calling every defect a "gate" is just silly. The term "gate" started with Watergate, which was as you know a major scandal in the Nixon administration. The iPhone is just a product. Products have defects sometimes. Most defects are pretty rare and Apple's terrific customer service will address these issues no questions asked. There's no need to turn every iPhone defect into a scandal. If your camera is defective, just ask Apple to fix it.

    If 75% of iPhones had this camera issue, and Apple failed to address it, THEN it would make sense to call it a "gate".
