    Take it to the Apple store. If you're out of warranty, be creative; see if there's an iPhone 5 inside or pop it back in.

    If I try to push it in where it was popped out will it break my screen?

    I wouldn't know. Maybe it's not even possible to push it back in if it's the battery swelling up.

    Maybe take off the screen first, by opening the screws at the bottom of the device. See if your battery is okay. If it is and it's just the case that popped off, put the phone screen-down on something soft and apply even pressure to the corner area to put the casing back on.

    How did it happen? Did you drop it?

    Yes they will. Make sure you book a Genius Bar appointment before you walk in

    Apple will probably pop it back in for nothing.. Ask what they will charge before you let them pop it back in to be sure. I believe I saw a video somewhere of it being repaired .. Maybe do a Google search to see if you can find it.

    Are you sure you dropped it?

    Find an Apple Store near you and book an appointment. Mention in the description that your 5C screen is coming apart from the phones body.

    My Iphone 5c did the same thing and I know i didn't drop it. It's been sitting on my desk for 2 weeks because work bought me a new 6. I noticed it today looking at it. IMG_2083.jpg

    Well that's a bit different than it just popping out now isn't it?

    Take it to Apple and see what they say.
