    How durable is the mute switch? How much can it handle before it starts to loose and mess up? Or is it built to last long?

    Also just for curiosity what happens if you push the switch up and down rapidly? iPhone 5s

    Welcome to iMore! Are you having issues with it? It still works fine on my old iPhone 5. Seems durable to me.

    Welcome to iMore.

    I've had many iPhone's over the years and have never had any issues with the mute switch. Had both the 5 & 5s.

    Apple's built quality is second to none. Obviously things break from time to time but the mute switch isn't used more than a few times a day by most people anyway.

    Warm Welcome to iMore! Thanks for the question.

    Also just for curiosity what happens if you push the switch up and down rapidly?
    The phone will go into silent mode and back to ring mode rapidly On a serious note though, Apple do a lot of testing for their devices and I'm sure they tested that if you used that switch 10 times a day for 2 years it would still work. Apple make some quality hardware and i personally think its built to last. Hope you enjoy your iPhone 5s.

    I have never seen an iPhone with mute button issues. I'd say they were very durable. From the 4 to the 6s never had an issue

    Heh, I was thinking that but just didn't make it to the punch.
