Crescentgate Problem With iPhone 6 Front Camera

James Cook:

The front-facing camera seems to be liable to moving within its housing, which results in a gray crescent shape appearing on the right side of the camera.


A Reddit thread titled “Is your iPhone 6 front-facing camera misaligned?” has more than 150 comments. The replies are almost all variations on “Mine has the exact same issue” and “Same.” Currently, almost none of the users complaining about it say it actually affects the photos being taken. In other words, if the thing still works, there is no need to replace it — it’s just cosmetic.

There’s also a Mac Rumors thread that discusses the problem.

It sounds like Apple is replacing the affected phones.
