#Crescentgate Problem With The iPhone 6 Selfie Camera
Hundreds of iPhone 6 customers are complaining that their phone's front-facing "Selfie" camera is becoming misaligned. The front-facing camera seems to be liable to moving within its housing, which results in a grey crescent shape appearing on the right side of the camera. There's a barely perceptible grey area showing through where the camera seems to have shifted slightly to the left. A Reddit thread titled "Is your iPhone 6 front-facing camera misaligned?" has more than 150 comments. Apple seems to be aware of the camera misalignment problem. Apple Store employee here, we don't know why they shift and if you choose we can replace the display which will replace the front facing camera or just swap the device all together. I usually just offer the full unit swap since customers feel the entire device is defective at that point. I only recommend display repairs if a customers data is not backed up and that poses less of a risk for data loss than obvious full data loss of a whole unit swap if the customer is not backs up.
