    My otherwise perfectly working iPhone 6S+ somehow got some dust or crap stuck under the display glass. No idea how. Display glass feels completely solid and it doesn't creack or move to any direction.

    Guess I'll have to do trip to my local Apple Store. Sigh.

    Out of curiosity, do you use any type of case? Do you expose yourself to overly dusty environments like at work or something?

    You're also sadly missing your "y".

    No, and no. I don't use any case and most of the time I work in pretty dust free environments.

    There is another thread on this. The causes to date are, if it wasn't there when you got the phone, but appears some weeks later it is some manufacturing defect in the lamination of the cover glass and screen, perhaps the adhesive or whatever keeps them together. It's not dust as there is no opening for any dust to get into. It is nothing the user is doing that causes this. So speculation on cases or dusty pockets, etc. are completely unfounded.

    At least one person reports that Apple replaced their device when they took it in. It appears to have failed some screen uniformity test. So you may want to take yours' in if it bothers you.

    Is it on the top left corner? If yes, see the other threads on this topic. Only option is to replace the phone with Apple.

    In my experience, they'll gladly replace it but the issue will reoccur a few weeks later :)

    Wait till you hit your mid to late 40's... Then you can have a freaking snow-globe in your display and not notice it. Problem solved!

    I'll be 60 in exactly one month and I'd notice it. Are you in your mid to late 40s? :)

    I've had them for years and about seven or eight eye surgeries. I'd still see dust, though. :D
