If its a manufacturer process defect they will fix it or catch a whole lot of flack from the web. Remember the HTC one series was having problems with the one finish chipping and that and they sent replacements. I can't see apple leaving people out in the cold if it is widespread.

Back to the original point of the thread- this is something that Apple has looked at I'm sure. If they screw the pooch on this then I'm sure they'll correct it somehow. They owned up to antenna-gate after awhile and handed out the bumpers. Maybe they'll do something here IF this really is an issue. What do you say we get the phone out in the hands of the public and see if it's a problem before we panic about it

Well it's starting to look like a real issue...
iFixit just broke down the iP5 and commented on it with a pic - http://guide-images.ifixit.net/igi/n...Ju6NpRtU.large
We all presume Apple test for this but we thought the same about antennas right? If they have them in external cases for secrecy then much like the antennas this wouldn't be an issue.
I can see this really blowing up into something, I never use a bumper because it ruins the design and doesn't go in my pocket as easily - it's intended to be used "naked" in any case so it's not an excuse that it should be put in a case. I'm not sure why they didn't stick with the bare aluminium, it looks smart on the white and my iP4 has lasted two years+ with no wear...
