    So random but when I tap the upper right hand side of my iPad on the back of the aluminum body (near the camera) I hear something jiggle inside. When I pick the device up and shake it - I hear nothing. Is this normal?

    I had this question about my iPhone 5c. It turns out that the lens in the camera jiggles when the camera is not in use because when the camera app is on it moves the lens into focus but when it is off the lens just sits there and can jiggle... That's because when you tap it, it vibrates but because it the lens is so light, when you shake it you cannot hear it.

    Ahh thank you for this. I was worried there was something wrong inside and really didn't want to return it because my screen is great so far. Now I know !

    Maybe your power button or the volume buttons are loose.

    No he said it was in the device and near his camera...I'm certain what I said is correct because it is a common question with new devices.

    Nope I held both those steady to test it and it's definitely coming from around the camera area. I wonder if anyone else notices this with their air?

    Apple really needs to engrave a message near the camera to let all know that the camera will rattle.:apple:
