    So I just noticed that my iphone 7 plus makes the famous Squeaking/clicking sound, when I press lightly on one of the corners of the phone.

    This is EXTREMELY frustrating, and my first reaction is to contact my carrier to arrange a repair/to get a new phone.

    But i also saw that this is extremely widespread, and every 7-user has it. So should I really bother?

    Are you referring to "Creaking?" It's likely due to the adhesive not set in place. If it bothers you badly, then have it replaced. My 7 Plus does not have this issue.

    I fixed mine by tightening it more while pressing down on the screen. Easy fix. No creaking since I did that.

    trust me, dont waste your time exchanging. Most of the apple store demos have this "issue" too. Its quality control from children in China. You cant expect much.

    I have this issue as well. Only experience the creak when i use force touch. Not a big deal for me
