    Mine crunches when I place my finger on it very lightly. I haven't noticed it effecting the operation of my phone. If it does I'll be calling apple (good thing for apple care)

    What color 5s did you get. I had 4 space grey before they let me exchange it for a white silver one. So far I have no issues.

    When I first got my 5s I noticed the crunching sound. It went away in time.

    With circular motion wipe the edges of the button while pressing it, seems like it dries up or something.. Mine will do that at times, but goes away after wiping.

    I had a similar problem with my iPhone 5. It is not picking a little, but it sounds like my home button "crunches" a bit when I press. The click is louder than the 5...but this is different. When just pressing light, not hard enough to actually press the tactile down, but I can hear it clicking. Anyone else?

    I can definitely hear a click BEFORE I actually press the button all the way down. Slight pressure makes a click noise. I dont know why but the home button is definitely stiffer. Maybe due to Touch ID?

    I know this is a bit late, but my iPhone does this most of the time. I booked an appointment for the genius bar but knowing me my home button will be fine when I get there.

    Ill feed back once Ive been

    Mine makes a crunching sound too sometimes but wiping against the edges fixes it.

    I did this and noticed a couple pieces of dust came out from behind the button, works perfectly now

    This is normal. My iPhone 5s has a "click" sound to it, whereas my iPod Touch 5 has a quieter home button. It varies between device.
