    If I hold my iPhone 6 to my ear and shake it slightly, you can hear a loud rattling inside the phone. I am almost 100% certain it's inside the camera. Anyone else experiencing this issue? Is it something I should worry about? Thanks!

    All iPhones have done this for a while now. Nothing to worry about.

    Don't shake your phone next to your ear :)

    It's the auto-focus. iPhones have had camera rattles since forever

    Only reason why I ask is because I know five other people with iPhone 6's and they have no rattling at all. If it's nothing to worry about i'll just leave it alone.

    All iPhones should rattle as it's the AF mechanism. It's normal.

    I personally don't think it's normal from personal experience. My 5 had a loose screw rattle noise so I had the genius bar open it up and they said it's wasn't right and they replaced it. But I think there is a difference between a loud rattle and a light rattle. The light rattle I think is the lens like most people say. 5s and 6 had no rattle then the 6+ had a slight rattle and now my new plus has no rattle. So it's really up to you if it doesn't bother you leave it be. At the end of the day I don't think it actually messes with the way the phone functions. Just can be annoying. On a side note it could also be the buttons being loose. Try holding down the buttons and then shake it. Hope this helps!

    It's normal and has been reported in several threads for several models now.
