Is it normal to be able to wiggle your power button?

    Mine (and a lot of others) are noticing their 5S power button has some play to it. Seems okay, as long as the button is operating and it doesn't bother me.

    It feels a little wobbly to me because the 4S power button is so solid. I think it's because the components are now aluminum compared to steel on the 4/4S.

    Stick with it, if the button starts to go, get it replaced within a year.

    Mine (4S) doesn't wiggle in the slightest (and it's almost two years old).

    As I said, it's because it's steel compared to aluminum.

    iPhone 4 didn't but my 5S has a slight wiggle. Think it's normal.

    If everything else is fine I wouldn't bother.
