    Hello iPhone 6s Users,
    i dont know i should aware people, but i think there are people like me who hate dust under screen,
    some people know i replied some threads about my Iphone 6s Defects,
    I have Replaced 5 iphone 6s, because of Dust issue,
    in Sunlight i can dust under Screen and Under GLASS EASILY, Which is totally Bad feeling for buying Luxury Devices like Iphone.
    first replacement i thought may be first batch is bad,
    but after 5 replacement, i realized that, its due to 3d Touch,
    when we press hard on screen, Dust came from Switch goes under Screen,
    and some particle under GLASS,
    SOME PEOPLE who never look so deeply cant Notice Dust Under GLASS,
    but it can visible with NAKED EYES in Sunlight,
    and the DUST Under DISPLAY PANEL Always Visible feels like DEAD PIXELS.
    you can prevent it if you laminate switch or Tapp that area,
    i hate these things, annoys me,
    im dissappointed with apple but about their service, its brilliant, they are providing me RMA,
    i hope this will good..fingers crossed.

    Thank you for saving us from our unknowing, unseeing selves. I don't know how I managed to sleep all these nights, knowing I had dust I couldn't see under the glass of my phone.

    Wow, all these years and 8 different iPhones and I've never noticed a speck of dust under the screen. Now I'll have to buy a microscope and examine my phone. And if I find a speck of dust what do I do?? And if it's on the outside of the phone can it work it's way to the inside?? Oh my....

    I used to think watch enthusiasts were a bit over the top when using loupes when shopping for *new* watches. So are we going to see iPhone buyers unboxing in-store immediately and using loupes to reject iPhones? LOL.

    Loupes don't help if the dust creeps into the display after a few days of use.

    OP, perhaps you have cataracts?

    I've never had this issue.

    It's not a "design" flaw. It's a manufacturing flaw. One out of every 50,000 units or whatever number you want to use will obviously be faulty. I've seen it, but not common by any means. Telling people they have cataracts or saying the iPhone has a dust design flaw are both false :rolleyes:

    I admit I used a loupe trying to see if I had the "pressure point" blemish that was claimed to be on ALL 6s Pluses. I could not see a thing wrong.

    Want to explain how this migration occurs, exactly, since the glass is bonded to the display during manufacturing? Be specific.

    Shhhh! Don't be asking for facts and logic in a thread. That's grounds for a banning!

    I'm on my third phone which has developed these little dark spots in the top left corner. For the second and third, I spent some time in the store examining the corner and it was perfect. About 10 days later, this is what I see. They're pretty hard to photograph on a note 3 until I used a 4x digital zoom. Some of the older people I showed it to can't see it but the younger guys were able to spot them.

    That is pretty bad.

    I'm not familiar with the cross section design of the screen. Does anyone know if there is an air gap between glass, and any screen layers where dust particles could find there way between the layers? I was under the impression that these layers were glued, laminated or some way sealed together, but I could be wrong in my assumption.

    Note, something I noticed with the 6S that is not on the 6 is that each corner has a tiny gap, looks like a bright pixel. I think this has something to do with the 3D Touch functionality and this is where the dust enters (my theory).

    See photo attached.

    Why is it that people that don't have an issue with their devices the first ones to deny that it actually occurs?

    It's not dust it's and issue with the lamination process. There is no air gap
  22. HEK macrumors 68040


    Sep 24, 2013
    That makes more sense to me. Didn't think there was any air gap.

    Those spots are really hard to see until there are a lot of them. When I have my glasses on, I can't make them out as I'm near-sighted. Once I take them off though, the spots come into focus.

    Interesting theory. I have personally seen this bright corner problem, but I'm not sure if everyone has that. Can any 6s users report if their display corners aren't bright?

    Dude, buy another phone if it bothers you so much. Life it too short.
