    Just set up my 5S and when I move the phone about the sleep button rattles about. Does anyone else have this problem?

    It's the camera lens. Hold your thumb over the lens and put some pressure on it and shake it. It should stop.

    Known issue for a million years, but nothing to worry about.

    Nope. It's the power button at the top and they all have this. Try searching next time, there's been a thousand threads.

    It's definitely the sleep button. I'm concerned as the button went on my 4 and I had to use the paper trick to get it to work.

    Yeah they all have the issue. I've had 3 5s's and they all do it. Everyone that doesn't have the 5s says it's the camera lense but it's not. If they had the 5s they would know. They should probably quit responding with that answer until they get the phone themselves.

    I have the 5 and 5s in front of me. My 5 doesn't do it and 5s does so I searched and there are tons of threads saying it's the lens.

    Makes sense that it's actually the sleep button though

    It's the button, there is too much space between the button and the case, or not enough pressure from inside pushing outward on the button, thus it has play and rattles. Two 5S phones I've had rattle, as did each display model regardless of color. Who knows if this will be addressed, or just ignored and never explained with a reason from apple?

    A little bit chewing gum will solve that problem.

    I have the same problem with a brand new space grey. It is disappointing and of unapplelike quality.
