    I've noticed this on mine and has some slight give as well. It is most likely from the initial production run. I also noticed the Apple Store display models all have the same issue. I have a replacement ordered but I'm wondering if others have this as well?

    I saw them just wanted to get a better idea on if it's widespread.

    Mine is like that but hardly at all. I don't really care. It's so minescule it's pointless to return it for that.

    As long as it doesn't get worse, I can deal with it.

    Mines not very good you can hear the glue sticking if you press it! Also the plastic white edge of the glass isnt attached in that area you can push and pull it away from the glass edge.

    Going to get a replacement befor it gets worse!

    I'll revisit the issue before my warranty is up.

    Mine is like that, and it's bugging me.... I'll probably get a replacement for backlight bleeding once that's fixed and hopefully the home button area on the new unit will be better.

    Mine is like that. I had a genius bar appointment earlier today and showed it to him, and right away he said, "It's definitely not supposed to do that. Let me see if we have any replacements in stock, otherwise we'll order another for you."

    They didn't have any, so I should be getting a replacement in about a week. Meanwhile, I still have mine until that point.

    It has something to do with the glue they used as opposed to the clips to hold the screen. Hopefully Apple can pull their quality control together and get this problem, as well as the backlight bleeding, taken care of asap.

    Not for me, but I might not know what you're talking about. Anyone care to post a picture?

    The replacement I received is way less noticeable.
