Whats this in my Iphone 4s (Camera glass)?

Hello,

I just recently noticed something (looks like glass) which nearly covers my iphone 4s camera lens. I took a look at my cousins iphone 4s and the object is not there nor on any other iphone. Let me know what you think:

With a red line around the object:

Anybody have any idea what it is?

There's a thin piece of rubber that sits on top of the camera when they slide the back on. That to me, looks like it was slid on and caught up on the rubber part, pulling it up for you to be able to see. You can take your back off and look to just see if you notice anything sitting on it. As long as you don't unhook anything, just brush of the camera or fix the rubber thing. iPhone repair is not something I'd recommend for you If you like how your day is going

What a bizarre effect. It looks like your camera has an eyelid. If it blinks, RUN!

Yes. OP: Folks have reported this before and make a Genius appointment to get it repaired.

Yep. I can't zoom in on anything now. Not a single thing will focus now.
