    Default Re: iPhone 6 Rattle

    Many similar threads like this with this "rattle" and it's common in other devices as well... seems to be a mechanism in the camera / autofocus mechanism (lens assembly) --> something along those lines. Definitely not an issue to be worried about as it's common among all devices, android, BB devices etc.

    My iPhone 5 and 5S rattled but it was the lock button. If I shook it and held the button, it wouldn't rattle.

    Hi all,
    I have had this issue since I got my iPhone 6 new, but apart from the rattle, I have had no problems, so I doubt it's anything to worry about. I believe that the 6 has an auto-stabilisation feature, where if you are shaking a bit or whatever when recording, the camera will move a tiny bit to compensate that, and give smooth video. This would suggest that there are moving parts in this region, and could be the cause of the rattle. I think it's perfectly normal, but will vary from model to model

    It's the camera module. That's it.
    If I tap the back of the phone, there is an evident "rattle" sound. If I hold the camera lens area firmly and tap the same way, there is no "rattle" whatsoever. This has occurred on every mobile device I have ever used and that is quite a lot of mobile devices, from many different manufacturers. As someone else also mentioned.
    Don't worry about it, unless the camera stops working correctly.

    Hi all,

    I bought iPhone 6s on Friday and I realized some sound is coming near by camera whenever you move my phone , left right, up down, look like something is loose inside.

    I called to customer care they advised some setting but no help, then they suggest to go customer case for physical check..

    Thanks.

    So will Apple replace my Iphone6? Did Aplle tell you anything? I just recently bumped into this problem and Apple has been recalled for this.

    It would appear that I too am having the same problem... With my NEW iPhone 7 and to add insult to injury, the replacement phone I had to wait hours for to resolve this matter ALSO has the same problem. Factory defect?
