Just wondering if anyone else iphone is attracting dust. 3 times I've charged my phone and wiped the screen clean and left it. Got back with the screen full of a lot of dust that I can pile it in one place. This never happened on my 4 or 5.

In my pocket, it sure does. Lots. Must be some kind of static charge with the screen.

Seems to be more so with my 6 than previous generations. I have the Apple leather case and attract a decent amount of dust/lint around the edges.

I end up taking it out of the case at home to use naked anyway.

Off topic, but what kind of case is that? Looks nice.

I have not had a significant dust problem on my 6 Plus, just fingerprints.

Yes, I have the screen is a dust magnet on my iPhone 6 Plus as well. Doubt there is anything you can do about it aside from constantly cleaning it. :confused:

Black will show dust/debris easily, especially if u keep it in your front pocket.
This. I even stream music from my phone when I'm in my car, and the front face of the phone attracts ultimately attracts dust to it. Usually I just wipe the phone on my shirt when I get out of the car. This happened when I had my space gray 6 and still now with my SG 5s.
