    Dad just got an iPad today, and he noticed the home button is slightly 'off' to the left. Is it worth an exchange or should he just stick with it?

    More due to aesthetics. It functions fine. Wondering whether it's just my Dad's one, or a common theme throughout home buttons.

    So I got to see the wonky iPad button. Hmmm. When he said slightly, he really meant slightly. I see what he means though, my iPad's button is straighter, but I don't think I would have noticed it had he not pointed it out.

    What do we reckon?

    Now this is a bump. It span round more. What the hell. Dad's not happy. I'm not happy. This was supposed to be a birthday present for him. What the hell?

    Obviously it bothers your dad. So exchange it for another.

    Apple wouldn't exchange mine with a wonky home button but the light bleed excuse worked. Good luck.

    Well sounds like it's still within the 14 day return window so Apple doesn't have a choice but to accept a return.

    I would say exchange. Not because it looks weird, but because since its moving, you know there's a chance it could get lose.

    Dad's ringing them up today.

    Managed to spin it back round for him, but I'm hoping we can get it replaced because, although it functionally works, it's more the thought that it could spin round again.

    A brand new device shouldn't do this.

    How would a wonky home button mean it's worth loads? My iPad's unique, it's got its own serial number and a scratch down the middle! Yours for only $1000! :p

    Mine is slightly tilted downwards, I don't mind it in terms of appearance, but I fear it will cause later problems with the actual functionality of the button.

    The majority of them have a normal home button. You've got a dodgy one, no need to feel so down about it.

    That looks more 'off-centered' than I expected. Do get it replaced!
