    After cleaning my iPad with a microfibre cloth this afternoon, everything got nice a clean except for 1 small white piece of dust right in the center of the screen. I tried some elbow grease, rubbing harder in small circular motion, wiping up and down.....a little moisture...nothing will get it off.

    It wouldn't bother me so much if it weren't in the dead center of the screen. I see it when the iPad is on or off, and it is particularly annoying when reading as the eye just automatically gravitates to it :(

    Any suggestions? :confused:

    I've read on here that Apple will replace devices for dust under the screen. If it bothers you that much it might be worth it to take it in and try.

    Get it replaced. The touch panel and LCD will eventually separate, which will degrade multi-touch performance. This is a warranty issue, and Apple has replaced dust-/air bubble-hindered iPhone and iPad 3G for me, even when the device is out of warranty.

    Augh....wanted to avoid the exchange :( Everything was so perfect with this unit.

    There's no way to fix this? How the heck did it get into the middle of the screen? :confused:

    Of course it can be fixed, and easily too. But, it will void your warranty.

    Live with it, your dustfree unit you picked out after inspecting 5 won't stay that way for long...
