    For all iPhone 4S users: When you tap your iPhone's camera, does it rattle? I know many people have reported this issue, but I am just curious to see if this is universal.

    Thanks! :)

    Would say 90% of them do as some people report that theirs doesn't but they are the minority

    Its the auto focus lens so expected

    Nope. No rattle. Actually I have no problems at all, it's perfect as can be to me. Even the battery. Hope I never lose it or need to get it replaced.

    It so quiet that most people don't notice it. Who cares anyway? They are all the same. Enjoy....

    Do you mean, if you tap the camera with your finger, absolutely no sound comes out?

    Thanks

    They all do. The 4 4S in my house do. The 17 on display at both my local Apple stores do.

    The genius who helped me does.

    My 3 old 4S that I returned did.

    Thats around 50+ that all do. Now some were quiet and some were loud.

    Even the iPhones 4, 3GS, 3G do too.

    Did you ever think that if yours doesn't rattle and 90% of them do, maybe there is something wrong with yours? :D

    Thanks! This is the answer I have been looking for. I wanted to check the iPhones at the Apple store, but I haven't had any time. I think the people who don't hear rattle either have very little, or just haven't noticed it.

    Yep, makes noise every time I tap it.

    The phone also makes noise when I tap it. Nothing to worry about.

    My old 3GS rattles. My new 4s and my wife's new 4 rattles too. It's normal!

    My new 4s rattles, my 4 rattles too. This phenomenon seems pretty normal. :eek:

    No rattle here. Mine is tight; not even a creek.

    Only in the bizarro cult of Apple is a Rattling sound in a smartphone accepted as normal. In the same way as the light bleed issues of the iPad 2 were brushed off as acceptable and normal.

    Even though 95% of IPad 2 units experienced light bleeding, it took months of people complaining before Apple implicitly acknowledged that it was a problem... They didn't offer a recall or exchange, just change companies who manufactured the screens.

    Light bleeding on the iPad 2 is not right. Neither is the rattling on the iPhone 4S.
