    Does anyone know what this wire (?) is and where it has come from? It stops my iPhone 6s from switching from silent to ring...Is there someone here from iFixit or similar that may know?

    Wow. I've never seen that before. Are you sure it's not something that got lodged in there?

    Edit: It actually does look like an internal wire. I would take it to the Apple Store to get it looked at.

    Might be an offcut. Not connected to anything. Sometimes things fall in there during manufacturing. My first iPad mini had a bit of clear plastic caught between screen and bezel. Turned out wasn't connected to anything.

    The wire is NOT the vibrate switch.

    We are condemning Apple first and finding out the facts later. We do not know if the phone has been opened by 3rd party kiosk repair service or maybe have got this piece of wire from being in a pocket. Even if it came from the factory it is quite rare. If it were common we would know about it here.

    The OP needs to take it to the Apple store and they will check it out.

    I'm not so sure, the amount of users on this forum who have been through several phones to try and get one without cosmetic defects is shocking, so lets say that 1% of owners have replaced their phone due to defect, what about the other 99% that don't notice or check the phone over when taking it out of the box? or find a defect and don't go online to talk about it on forums?

    I am talking about the wire in the mute switch.

    I am all to aware how some pick over their phone and expect it to be virgin and perfect in every way. People must understand that the people here, in this forum, are the exception and most iPhone users buy their phone, put it in a case and move on with life never knowing there is a tiny skuff that can be seen if the light is just right.:p

    So as long as you put it straight in a case and try not to look at it too close you wont notice the defects, ignorance is bliss

    One day you will meet a girl, will you demand she be perfect too?

    I am engaged and she is perfect, but millions haven't been spent on marketing to try and give her a false sense of perfection with close up images of perfectly crafted phones that look like they have been made by Rolex when in fact upon opening the box time after time after time detects are apparent.

    I suspect she is NOT perfect but if you say so. I am done here.

    Most iPhone buyers probably don't even expect perfection, I don't, basic things like dead pixels, dust under digitizer, loose buttons, dust under camera lens, recessed sim trays etc these are all common issues which should not be the case with a "premium" phone
