    I noticed my iPhone 6 plus has what looks like a foggy spot, similar to what happens to a cars windshield.
    Its under the screen, any ideas on how to fix this?

    make an appointment with the Genius bar at an Apple store and go in... its still within a year so maybe they'll give you a replacement...

    Yea, do what Gryfter suggested. The screen is laminated so it doesn't really have a gap for it to be fogged up, I think, unless you got it soaked in water that is..

    Apple should fix unless the water sensors have been activated.

    Yeah I was just about to say... If there is moisture/fog/condensation somehow under the screen, that is not a good sign... Your water sensor could have possibly been triggered. If it has been triggered, no replacement for you. :(

    It's still worth a shot though to see if you can get a replacement, because we don't know that the sensors have been triggered in the first place. Just a possibility to keep in mind.

    Lesson learned, don't place iphone in bathroom while taking shower. 860% humidity. :D

    I will admit I did do this several times, but apple does have a commercial with this same behavior.

    You could always try putting it in rice or better yet in a seal container with desiccant packs.

    Yup, saw another post while back who did the same thing with the phone in the bathroom, fogged up from numerous encounters with steam, and Apple saw the triggered water damage sensor.....Denied claim

    Only Apple can answer your question. Does not hurt to take it in and see. No one here can tell you what aApple will do. Good luck.

    Sometimes Apple is very good about these things. Explain about the steamy shower and they just might . . . .

    I said I would go soon but was busy and finally went to the apple store in soho today. They replaced the screen no problem after checking it in the back (water damage) most likely.
    He said that they never saw this happen to the screen until now.
