    Anyone noticing any dead pixels on their 5s?? I've got what appears to be 2, one on the bottom and on on the top right side. What's Apple's stance with dead pixels?? Covered under AppleCare???

    Once upon a time I had the smallest dead pixel to man on my new iPhone 4, they replaced it for free of charge.

    I had 3 dead pixels on my original iPhone 5 and Apple Care+ covered replacement free. Take it to the store and good luck.

    Since it's been less then 30 days since your purchase(Or 14 depending on who you bought it from) it doesn't even matter that you have Applecare, right? They should replace it with a BRAND new UNUSED in Factory Sealed Box 5s.


    Pretty sure it works like this.

    Unless they do not have any brand new factory sealed boxes, they will replace it with a genius replacement which is still brand new, but not in a retail box.

    Anybody have a background I can use to see if I have any dead pixels?

    Edit: Never mind found one....No dead pixels here.

    Last I heard even one dead pixel qualifies an iPhone for replacement and is covered by AppleCare.

    I would make an appointment as they are a little busy now. They also might not have a replacement and you might have to wait till they do.
