    The bottom of my 6S (in between the lower antenna bands) is discolored.. Is this normal on a 6 month old Silver 6S?

    Would apple replace it under the warranty?

    AC doesn't cover cosmetic issues. Although abnormal, it's unlikely that it would be a replaceable issue.

    Can you post pics of the discoloration? Do you use your phone with a case?

    I never experienced any discoloration when I owned the 6s for over a year. But I didn't use a case either.

    From my experience, it never hurts to politely and honestly ask them. The worst thing they can do is say "No." Exceptions are made, but not guaranteed.

    There have been some reports of the pink anodized iPhone discoloration with a case in this forum.

    I remember that thread. I think certain cases might have chemicals that are affecting the anodization.

    OP, did you use a clear case by chance?

    Likely it wouldn't be replaced, unless it was affecting the performance of the iPhone. I agree with others in here, it could be caused by a case.

    Forget to mention I didn't use a case.
