    Does tightening the screws to stop the screen from clicking void the warranty even though you never open it up

    I saw Apple documents a long time ago for iPhones. Back in the iPhone 4.
    Scratches on the screws and admission to opening the phone is enough to void warranty@ the stores discretion.

    Best to just call Apple, they're very good at warranty. I know my sister opened hers, disclosed it, and they opened it to confirm no damage. Saw no damage, and exchanged it.

    Tightening the screws won't stop it clicking in most circumstances.

    I don't know if it would make a difference, but there's no way Apple would able to tell if you've tightened the screws.

    You can tell as there will be marks in the screw heads from the Torx driver.

    They were originally ncrewed in by Apple, so if you use the right size driver and do it carefully, it'll be fine.

    My 6 Plus screen clicks/taps when I use it. Perks of owning an iPhone.
