1. Scratches Apple prides itself on making products that aren't just functional but beautiful as well. But users are reporting that after having their iPhone 5s for only days, or even hours, the sheen on the sleek, aluminum phone is getting scratched up.
2. Lightning dock connector The tech world is nothing if not full of change. But many longtime Apple users are irked at the company's decision to use a smaller connector port, called Lightning, on the iPhone 5 and new iPods.
With one fell swoop, that meant both a need for new power cords and that the new products won't connect with older speaker systems, alarm clocks and other accessories. The fix? A $29 adapter. And even then, the adapter doesn't support video or the "iPod out" function for transmitting some data from the devices.
3. The phone's too light We told you some of these are kind of weird. One of Apple's selling points for the new phone is that it's the lightest smartphone ever. One of the emerging complaints? That it's the lightest smartphone ever.
4. Screen issues OK ... there are 5 million new phones in the wild now, so inevitably there are going to be some lemons. It's hard to know how widespread it is, but a handful of problems with the phone's touchscreen are bubbling up, too.
5. Leaking light Phones aren't supposed to leak. But users on multiple forums are reporting that light from the screen appears to be showing through gaps around the iPhone 5's antenna and power button.
