    I recently noticed the rear camera lens cover has a fine crack in it. You don't see the crack in the pictures but under certain lighting and angles it causes some glare in my photos. Apple tells my I have to bring it in to a store to tell me how much it would cost to fix and the nearest store is two hours away. I am having trouble finding the lens cover online to replace it myself. I can find the camera module itself but not the lens. Anyone know where I can order one? I have a space grey 6+ .

    I'm pretty sure it is built into the rear case.

    In tear downs the rear cover appears to be separate from the lens.

    They said a cracked lens is accidental damage and not covered by warranty and they cannot give me a cost to repair without looking at it.

    I have found a lens cover on witrigs. Does anyone know how to attach it? It appears it may be by glue.
