    So I just got a brand new Jet Black iPhone 7 and if I tap it near the earpiece or shake the phone in my hand it makes a rattling sound.

    I don't recall ever experiencing this with previous iPhone but I thought I'd check here first and make sure I'm not crazy.

    So does your iPhone 7 rattle when you shake it, or when you tap near the earpiece speaker? What could it be? Should I take it to the Apple Store or is this normal? Do you think they'll replace it?

    It's the camera that rattles. My SE does the same. I went in a iStyle store and I shaked every iPhone xD. All rattle because of the lens of the camera. It's something related to the auto-focus. Some phone rattle quieter some phones rattle louder. It's frustrating me too when I put my SE down on the table and it sounds like a toy with something broken inside.

    Stay calm it's normal :p but annoying...and kinda stupid...they could have done something better than that.

    It is so you can take amazing photos and video while running. It is the new image stabilization.

    This reminds me of my MacBook Pro 13 2015 that made rattling noise and it was the logic board that went bad .

    This is optical image stabilizer that's why it makes that noise

    The 7 plus won't do this since it has a bigger lens
