    Adipatel thanx for your suggestion bro...So many 5S having the same problem....But i'm not in favour of getting  iphone repaired...because manufactured in factory under surveillance of computers & robots.But when you take it to apple support center....there will a man who repairs it....things can go wrong if any small circuit or wire get broken...or some sensor already working fine can go out of order.

    So i would like to stay with this rattle rather then repairing or replacing untill Apple find this issue.

    A friend of mine got his iphone replaced & now he got a piece that sensors are working incorrectly...

    Let's get this straight...it isn't going to make any difference replacing your iPhone 5s. They all rattle! Unless Apple fixes the manufacturing flaw at its Chinese factories, there's little we can do.

     

    For now, we can monitor the latest January batch of 5s's to see if the rattle persists. So far, the production details posted in this thread are uptil December.

     

    Anybody with a 5s manufactured in January? Where do we stand with this?

    I took mine to the Apple store for a camera issue, while I was there I brought the rattle up to the genius and told him the rattle was so loud you can hear it in the videos I take, the genius told me all the 5s's do it and to hold the button while I take video so it can't be heard.  Basically, I have to accept that my videos will have this rattling (loud even) noise in them, or hold the button no matter which way I hold the camera to take video.  It's gawd awful.  OH and when I got it back from repair, they scratched the back of my phone.  I was frustrated and livid, I just left.

    I too have the loose power button on my gold iPhone 16gb that I've just bought, the camera lens is scratched on the inside but doesn't cause a problem when taking pictures. Judging by the number of people who have had this problem it's seems the majority haven't been able to get a good one. I don't want to risk a repair or keep swapping it, I'm really pleased with the phone itself. It's a little small after using a Z Ultra for the last three months but I think I'll get used to it. I may just contact AppleCare.

    I've just cut a very small piece of Post it note and placed it between the power button and phone casing folding it over the button then putting the phone in a fitted clear gel case. No button rattle at all now, it doesn't look bad either. This still doesn't excuse Apple for this build defect but cracking bit of tech though.

    better, with less rattle but still exists, when moving up and down slowly while taking a video, slight rattle noise was recorded, but turning left and right is fine. However, discovered some scuffs on the device. Another brand new replacement is on the way. Will update that too.

    Sorry for the late response,

     

    i think it is not so important to buy the original. Its just important that the case covers the Power Button

So pls do the needfull.

    Figured I would throw my 2 cents into the large HAT here that Apple has created for all of us! I purchased my phone from an ATT retailer. No rattle. However Microphone went out this week. Took it to the Apple Store, replacement went smooth. Now I was given a new phone that has a very annoying rattle of the power/sleep button. Took it back, store opened 5 others, same rattle on all of them. Store offered nothing to resolve. Called Apple Care, they admitted this would be annoying as well to them. They offered replacement via mail & to contact the stores Manager for a resolution. Hopefully this will be resolvable and Apple will offer something to everyone that has to "live" with this very annoying problem with every phone call they make!!

    My 5S's lock button was rattling straight out of the box, in addition then the screen began to come loose and 'click' all down the right hand side of the screen, very very annoying! At the same time the lock button began to 'ghost click', where it would press itself, even when it would just be sitting on my bedside locker!

    It's been away for a week or so now with Applecare (as there are no Apple stores in the Republic of Ireland)...

    To add insult, they do not even appear to have fixed the thing... I've checked the status of the repair and they "could not duplicate issue"...

    To say I am beginning to lose my faith with Apple is an understatement...

    I can not believe that Apple is not taking care of this. I am not going to buy a mobile phone for 699$ / 699€ to have this kind of problems. Two weeks ago I returned (money back) an iPhone 5S just for the rattling noise.

     

    I have an iPhone 3GS, iPad 4, Macbook 13.3" and two or three iPods and never had this issues. My 4 years old IPhone 3GS does not rattle.

     

    From Apple page:

     

    "iPhone 5s is purposefully imagined. Meticulously considered. Precision crafted. It’s not just a product of what’s technologically possible. But what’s technologically useful. It’s not just what’s next. But what should be next."

     

    I am sorry Apple, but this time I am not going to spend my money on your "best ever built" product.
