    Guys,I'm very frustrated.It's just come to my attention that my iPhone 6s Plus's camera rattles a little bit.So basically when I tap on the back of the phone near the camera especially under it,it'll rattle a lil bit.It'll also rattle when I'm taking a video for instance and I shake the phone.God,that's the first 6th gem iPhone I've ever had.I don't even know...I'm just on the verge of a mental breakdown.Help me!Is this even normal?Thanks in advance!

    I think that's normal. I don't notice it on my 6s Plus, but I don't hear well and use a case. Check this thread.

    Try going to the  store so they can look at it and if they feel it's defective they will replace it.

    Welcome to iMore! I don't think a little rattle on the camera is worth having a mental breakdown. There are moving parts in there. This is normal. It takes beautiful pictures and videos in spite of the rattle.

    Enjoy your 6s Plus. It's a great phone!

    The camera should not be rattling, despite what some of the gentlemen may state. I have owned/own 3 iPhone 6 Plus devices, one iPhone 6, and two iPhone 6s Plus devices and none of them have a rattling camera. While true that there are moving parts in there (Plus series phones specifically because of OIS), it should hardly be audible, and definitely not sound like rattling.

    If it's within your exchange period take it back. Or at least to an Apple Store to have them peek at it.

    The rattle is normal....... with the camera off, there will be a little rattle... with it on there should be no rattle... this is the OIS in the camera.. every phone I have had with OIS has the same rattle.

    We have a 6s and a 6s Plus and they both make a slight rattling noise if I shake them next to my ear. My 6 Plus makes the same noise. A colleague of mine tested his out and heard a slight rattling noise. It isn't loud by any means, but it's definitely there. All of the phones work just fine despite the rattling.
    If you Google "iPhone rattling noise" it's actually quite common.

    My 6s doesn't rattle if I shake it but if I tap near the lens it does have a small rattle.

    I could be wrong, but I'm sure the rattle you're hearing is just the accelerometer for screen rotation etc....like I said, I could be wrong.
