    Hey Guys,
    Today, after more than two months of purchase of an iPhone 6s, I have noticed a rattle near the camera or antenna or the power button. I am thinking that it is a camera rattle but it is prominent if I just mildly tap it above the apple logo or even on the apple logo. Is this normal. I am just a bit worried. Please reply!

    Thanks in advance

    No it's not normal. Since your iPhone 6s is only two months old, it's still under warranty. Take it back to where you purchased it from and ask them to exchange it for another.

    It's pretty normal. I've had every iPhone since the 4S and all have done this to some degree. If you're concerned, you can definitely take it in but it's normal and they likely wouldn't replace it unless they deem something is wrong with it.

    From my home, any Apple Store is more than 85km far away. So want to know if its worth it or not to go from city to city only in order to discover that everything is normal. So hope you understand. The camera seems to be working fine so although it isn't a problem, the rattle definitely worries me! I found a similar rattle in my friends Panasonic phone which does have an autofocus camera but then it is two years old. So, I would like to know what I have to do r if everything is normal!

    Thanks,
    Ilove6s.

    Yes it's normal. The lens when not in use floats so when tapping or shaking the phone you'll hear the lens.

    To rule out everything else open the camera app and try tapping your phone like you have. You should hear nothing.
