    Anyone else experienced this? And if so, did you do anything about it?

    If you press the back casing or grip the sides it makes an awful creaking sound like the casing is loose..

    I went to an Apple Store and the guy at the genius bar said his old one did the same and it's just general usage. It's not breaking in front of me but I'm kind of concerned it's doing this after about 5 months!

    5 months?? my old iPhone used to do that but it took a year and a half for it to start I would say if it continues or gets worse ask for a replacement or repair because it shouldent start at 5 months

    Mine has been doing that for a while. I don't know when it started, but I just ignore it.

    There is an adhesive between the bezel and the black or white housing on the back.. From pressure being on the bezel from cases and such the adhesive begins to tear apart and that is what in the end is leading to that sound... The casing is just being pushed back together with the bezel. It' no big problem at all and NOTHING can happen to your phone from this.
