    The proximity sensor on my 2nd i6 is not turning off the display when it should. I noticed this when the phone would get hot next to my ear/face when on a call. I have tried repositioning it many times. Hard restarts.....left side, right side. Nothing helps.

    Sometimes it works fine.....

    Apple replaced the first one 3 weeks ago. This one started started doing the same thing 2 weeks ago.

    I hate to call Apple back. I am sure they will say it's the way I hold it. But I've never had this issue with any iPhone going all the way back to the original iPHone 1.

    I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem.

    Yes, I'm having issues with mine as well. The ambient light sensor also stopped working and the auto-brightness toggle in the settings app is now gone as well.

    Not as bad as (was it?) the 4 that kept dropping calls when held up to your ear.

    Issues like these is something you wouldn't want to expect from a premium device.
