    I recently got my ipod touch 4 replaced because of wifi issues.

    The wifi antenna is located at the top near the camera. My question is, Does applying pressure or pushing the upper part of the screen (near the camera) can cause damage inside like the wifi antenna?

    Im getting paranoid because I have cases that you really need to push to get fit.

    Because your question is exceedingly vague to begin with. Obviously depending on how hard you "press" you could crack the glass and cause damage. Otherwise, electronics are generally not prone to damage if they are "pressed" as experienced in day-to-day usage. This should be obvious.

    Its possible that pushing the upper part can squeeze the hardware inside like the wifi antenna

    In order to apply enough pressure to damage the wifi antenna you would have to press so hard, that you would crack the case and then you would have obvious and bigger problems.

    TLDR: it ain't gonna happen

    Then what might be the cause of my wifi antenna to break in my previous Touch?

    It was working an then after a few weeks it says no wifi. Restore didnt correct it.

    So you cannot damage the wifi antenna without breakin the glass? Except for water ofcourse.

    Get a screen protector.

    Bonus layer of protection and a sense of relief everytime you press hard

    No it wont affect the antenna at all, if you have seen the design of the device inside,you ll notice that all these devices are place separately and they are not in touch in between. So you can safely place the top of the screen!:apple:

    Even if you put pressure on the top area where the wifi antenna is located?

    You keep asking and you keep getting the same answer - NO NO NO. Your old iPod had a faulty wifi chip, pressing on the iPod did not damage it. Asking yet again is not going to change that.
