    So I have an iPhone 6 Plus(Space Grey).Everything works fine.I'm seriously in love with my 6 plus.However there is one thing that has been bothering me for a couple of days.It's recently come to my attention that my lock button(sleep/wake button) has become sort of loose.It will wiggle from left to right when say I put my index finger on it and start moving it.This is what i'm talking about:
    I would really appreciate it if someone who has an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus and has experienced this replied to this thread and gave me their thoughts because my phone is under a 2-year-warranty so if I'm gonna be shipping my phone to apple for a repair or respectively a replacement I need to make sure my this issue(if it's even an issue) is really abnormal.Thanks in advance! :)

    my silver iPhone 6 plus sleep/wake button is firmly placed, it does not wiggle.
    I'd take it back.

    Same here. Mine is very firm. Take it back, OP.

    Both my 6 and 6+ had a very small amount of play in the sleep/wake button but definitely not as much as yours.

    Loose iPhone buttons certainly aren't a rare occurrence. I swapped out five iPhone 5 handsets and they all had loose buttons. My 6+ has a loose mute switch. People should consider themselves extremely lucky if they get an iPhone with a perfect display and tight buttons in my opinion. There have been numerous threads over the years about loose buttons.
