iPhone 6 users now complaining about a misaligned selfie camera
posted by Chris P. / Dec 02, 2014, 2:22 AM
iPhone 6 Plus units seem to be unaffected."Say what?" you say? Yeah, we needed a few pictures, too, before we could understand what exactly the problem is. Thankfully, plenty of visual evidence was provided on the internet, and dozens of people confirmed that this exact issue is present with their respective iPhone 6 unit (our resident iPhone 6 is fine).
According to one redditor, who claims to be an Apple Store employee, Cupertino hasn't yet identified the cause, but will either replace your display panel (includes the camera) or swap your device altogether. That is, of course, if you consider this an actual problem, seeing as, at least at this point, it appears to be a cosmetic issue only – photos snapped with the 1.2-megapixel cam are just fine.
Is your iPhone 6 affected by this?

atleast during my existence. this has been one of the worst words added to english language. here i am too conscious to use common words like 'gonna' 'gotta' 'wanna' and on other hand people are using selfies.... try saying once. self portrait picture. you will actually feel slightly less stupid. i gurantee.

Weird, i thought this was iPA but all i'm seeing are posts of minor faults affecting only a handful of users and nothing on stories like Apples marketshare hitting $700B etc..

Well that is because you can only praise something so much when there is something so blatantly wrong with its design (multiple things in this case). Even in the middle of all this the Apple fluff pieces come at regular intervals. It isn't anything as bad as Cnet or the Verge though.

I am pretty picky when it comes to phones but even I would ignore this one. If you look hard enough, you can find something. I try not to it as much as I used to know. Especially since I started giving HTC and Taiwanese companies a chance...shudder..... If you are OCD about every little single,ni have to say go with Apple and Samsung. Definitely for first batches. Stay far and away from HTC. If you are laughing at Apple for this. You can find like 10 of these on any HTC device.

I think all the hardware issues (i.e. bending frame, & selfie camera, etc.) stem from a quality control issue because of the supply demands. Some units made it to shipping that never should have passed QC inspections. Now, if it turns out the manufacturer cut corners to meet quota this could absolve Apple (somewhat) because they would be the party to blame for not meeting specification. However, the software glitches? All on Apple's shoulders to bare.
