    Read your own post back and take a note of the problem you describe...
    How could you get underneath the screen without taking the phone apart? Also, you would have to destroy the display to get to the dust so you can either live with it or get a replacement.

    I don't think that is a good idea...I would just exchange it.

    I've seen someone that got it replaced for the same reason. Its a manufacturing defect, they won't deny it & they will replace your phone without any problem.

    How exactly would that accomplish anything? Its under the glass and between the screen. The screen and glass are fused together. A blow dryer and/or heat would do nothing.

    If this continues to bother you, I would take it into Apple and see if they can do something to remove the dust from under the screen. Maybe they don't have to swap it out if there is something that can be done to manually remove the dust.

    Heat with hair dryer? Read what you are saying. How can heat get rid of dust underneath glass? If it bothers you take it back and get replaced.

    Wouldn't recommend using hair dryer, or even a heat gun as that will soften the glue and could mess up something in the process. Simply get it replaced.

    Exchange it. Why live with a defect plus it'll affect the resale value when you decide to sell it.

    Just went through 3 brand new iPads that all had small dust particles under the glass. Have given up for now. Disappointing that this is such a common issue.

    Yeah, don't put a hair dryer on your phone. I would exhaust other options, go to the Apple Store, before placing your phone under any harm. Once you go that route you can't go to the Apple Store since there would most likely be physical damage on the screen.

    Are you on a wind up? There is quite an art to installing a screen protector perfectly. You need a relatively dust-free room, closed windows, no dust floating around in the air from changing your bedding or vacuuming etc. Then you need a steady hand, plenty of light and some dust removal strips may come in handy.

    Do you see it when you use the phone, watch movie, play game etc. Perhaps you need to adjust your pickiness threshold. It's a device manufactured by humans, it's not going to ever be perfect. And even if you did find perfect one, after one drop, it won't be. Just use the phone don't keep looking for things wrong with it.

    Remove the protector carefully and check the screen again.

    You'll probably find the dust particles on the silicone adhesive.
