    So I was switching cases today and was admiring the beautiful green back, then noticed that when I press on the Apple logo it makes a pop/creak noise. Does anyone else’s? Wondering there is something wrong with mine?

    What would cause you to press on the  logo?

    I was just looking over my phone and admiring the midnight green. When I was holding it I wiped down the back of the phone to get finger prints and dust off before I put it back in a case. That’s when I noticed. I though I was crazy until I could replicate it each time by pressing on the Apple logo.

    Ok so you made me take off my Apple Leather Case and check...LOL. Nope, I'm not experiencing any pop/creaking noises when I press the  logo. This is not normal and I would definitely have it checked.

    yes its a big deal, If its making noise when its not suppose to then something isn't right, which could lead to failure later on in the future. So while its under warranty I'm going to have it looked at and fixed/replaced. I do keep it in a case, I have multiple cases that I switch between, I'm just wanting it working as it should.

    Wonder what kind of failure that would lead to

    what if its the back glass starting to separate in the middle, or maybe a circuit board is slightly loose. Or maybe nothing would ever happen but while its under warranty it doesn't hurt to have it checked.

    I did check my co-workers iphone pro max in midnight green and his didn't make any noise. So something is up and needs looking at

    I guarantee it’s not a loose circuit board. You would know instantly. And there’s really nothing in the iPhone that could ever be loose like that and still function.

    I wonder if the logo isn’t separating. But definitely not a electronic issue.

    Given the amount of money the phone costs, then yes, I think it's a very good idea to take it back to Apple.

    So a little update. I took my phone in yesterday and the Apple tech verified something was internally wrong, so I got a new phone. He thinks the noise is from the wireless charging magnet coming loose. Would explain why my phone never really charged well with wireless charging.

    I’m so glad you got a new phone! I was wondering what was happening! Thanks for sharing your update.

    My Pro Max makes a very tiny little pop if you push on the Apple logo. Nothing to be alarmed about. It works fine and will be traded back to ATT in the fall.

    To each their own, but I don't understand this mentality. We are all paying a premium price for this phone, regardless of whether its up front or through payments. To settle for anything less in the quality of the build just seems... absurd to me.

    Me either ! we pay over £1000 for these things and we read excuses for quality control that would not be acceptable for a £10 toaster !

    It’s a tiny, little click. The phone functions perfectly. I’ve read several posts on the www where people made Apple give them another phone and the replacement was worse than the original. All I can say is congrats on something so insignificant being significant to you. You’re truly blessed.

    As I said, to each their own. It has nothing to do with the phone being "significant" or not, and I don't appreciate the personal attack. Good day to you sir.

    Statements that begin with “to each his own” are just like statements that begin with “all due respect”....
