iPhone 5 front glass panel separating/lifting away from body?
Very oddly, on my iPhone 5, I noticed the entire front panel/glass/LCD/digitizer assembly is separating or detaching from the body at the top right corner.
It appears to be otherwise intact. It is still functional.
I have never dropped the device on anything other than carpet from farther than a few feet.
There is approximately a 1-2mm visible gap between the bottom of the glass panel and the top of the metal surrounding strip.
Pushing the panel back into the body causes the panel to flex a little, but it does not stay in place.
Any ideas about what happened and how it might be possible to fix it?
Thanks for your comment!
I keep it in a Mophie case, in a front pant pocket or a suit breast pocket. Between the rigid case and where I keep it, I don't think the case is bent as the rear panel is quite flat still.
What I meant by "flex" is that I can push the corner down so it is true to the back panel, but it doesn't stay in place.
Here's a photo:
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Where do you keep your phone? Front pocket or back pocket in pants? Or purse? Sounds like the case was bent. The glass/display is ridgid and doesnt flex.

Went to the Apple store.
Diagnosis: Swollen Li-ion battery. Apparently the symptoms are pushing down on the screen causes a rainbow-like vertical streak to appear along the left third of the screen, following the bulge line of the battery.
Got it replaced.

Did they charge you the replacement or was it free?

My screen has completely separated from mu iPhone 5 in the same way, held on only by the connecting cable. Phone works fine. Battery works fine. But if I understand the Apple store diagnosis and fix was to replace a swollen battery. I cannot find any evidence looking at the inside under the screen of anything being swollen in the least bit. Should I assume replacing my battery will and putting the screen back on will fix it? Lot of money spent if that is to the problem.
