    I've just noticed that my iPhone 5's screen is lifting away from the body of the phone.
    Otherwise it is fully functional.
    I've read on the net that people in other countries have taken their unit to a local Apple Genius bar and they've replaced the phone with a new unit even though the phone was out of warranty for more than a year due to it being a bulging battery issue.
    Do we have Genius bars here? Where do I bring my phone for checking?
    Please advise.

    Probably a bloated battery. Have it checked before it damages other parts. This happened with an iphone 5 we had also, though we just had the battery replaced by Bhurn and Joy at theater mall
