Anyone have this issue? My ocd kicks in with every new iPhone purchase. It drives me crazy!!! I don't feel like returning :/

I have a similar issue with mine, but I also have a small gap between the upper left corner where the black screen meets the grey top. I would assume its caused by a glue issue of some sort, but on mine the gap is large enough that I can slip a piece of paper down into it. I'm currently dealing with AppleCare on getting a replacement. I tried to exchange it at the local Apple Store, but I was told "that was the way it was designed?":mad:

Wow that is not cool! I hope you get it worked out. I don't think I see any gaps at all thank god. Still don't know if this is worthy enough for me to return

Ok the clicking went away. Not gonna worry because I think the same happened with my 5s. Every iPhone I get no matter how many times I exchange it seem to have a small imperfection. Normal I guess

top left corner? I have got that too. Once I press and it makes that noise, you can't replicate it until you try again hours later

Take it back for a replacement. I had the exact same issue with my iphone 5c and they replaced it.

Ok but I might have to wait a bit right? Until they have regular stock? I bought it from future shop

Probably, but i would visit an apple store if you have one near you. In my case i didnt go immediately to replace the phone , but the problem got worse and in fact a big portion fo the screen was squeaking, as if there is a gap between the glass and the screen.

What causes the small click sound with pressure? Does it mean that the screen is not put on properly? It seems that most devices have this including the 5s

I have this problem too. Does it when pressing just next to the volume buttons. Quote noticeable. Just did a search of Apple support forums and see a number of people have this issue. Common theme is it's always in the upper left. So i'll wait a little bit before taking it back, to make sure i get one from a batch that comes after they are likely to have fixed the production problem.

Update: Went to the Apple store today and they replaced it no problem. Of note, he did not seem surprised to see the issue. And he told me that the cause is battery swelling. So apparently some units have a defective battery, which swells, pushing up on the screen.

Exactly the same issue on my 16gb, my 128gb is flawless though.

I'm with O2 in the UK - they are sending a courier to swap mine with a brand new unit :)
