    Ive just noticed to the left of the home button on my new iPad the bezel makes a clicking sound when pressed. I can't see any physical damage but it is a little annoying as I usually hold the iPad in that area. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? It does t seem bad enough to take back to apple as the device is perfect apart from this. If anyone else is experiencing this is there a quick fix like putting weight on that area overnight or anything?

    As in a creak sound as you put pressure on it? Sounds like a weak bezel to me.

    I'd love to see how an iPad is manufactured at the Chinese factory on a Science Channel episode of "How it's Made". Maybe not... we might all be appalled.

    I would suggest that you do return it as you might have a weak bezel. Worse still is the fact that the glass might not be properly mounted/fitted as a result. This might some day contribute to glass damage.
