    Got my lovely 64GB 5S this morning and just found that the screen isn't 'glued' down properly-pressing it makes a nasty clicking sound as it moves up and down!

    Has anyone else noticed anything similar?

    I'll be making a trip back to the Apple store tomorrow-hopefully there'll be some stock set aside for faults :mad:

    Same thing with my 16GB 5S Space Grey.

    Starting from the top right corner, all the way to about the sim card tray is completely loose. Screen pops in and out w/ clicking noises.

    The phone also had a small nick on bottom by the speaker.

    Genius bar appointment is set for this afternoon, will post update after.

    My 4S did this. Chances are you'll find this with every one. It should only happen when you push near the sim tray.

    Just got back from Genius Bar.

    Device confirmed as faulty, no replacements in stock. Had to order one, should be here within 3 days.

    No problems like that here. Take it back in, you will get a good one. They always have plenty in reserve for replacements on day one release buys. You will be fine.


    I surprised they didn't have a replacement. But 3 days is a LOT better than the 3 months some people are being quoted for new orders.
