    Tap your phone near the camera and you may hear a rattle noise.

    Open the camera app, and tap to focus.

    Now tap the phone.

    No rattle noise right?

    It's perfectly normal, it's just the lens set up Apple uses, and when the camera is 'focused' it keeps the lens' still.

    This has been going since auto focus lenses were introduced in the iPhone. It's a floating lense that only stops floating when in use and powered (electro magnetic control)

    Just thought it might offer some insight to some first time owners.

    The rattle noise seems to be one of the biggest complaints, it always has been, so hopefully this will save some unneeded trips to the apple store.

    Take it back for the rattle noise?

    Yeah, it's all over the apple support forums and here.

    The camera rattle is normal, but if you can LIGHTLY, and I do mean LIGHTLY shake or even put the phone to your ear and hear a rattle then thats bad.
