    My lens has condensation under the lens. I think it came from using the mount in my car. It holds it in front of an ac vent. I got an appointment at the Apple Store Monday.

    Any one else having this issue?

    Yep I can see this happening. Got the phone cold and then moved it to a high humidity area and condensation formed.

    Might want to turn that vent off or redirect the cold air.

    So lens was all foggy, huh, nudge nudge, wink wink.

    How hot it must have been. Hint hint.

    Maybe it was the wetness that made it so humid, insinuate insinuate.

    And I'm sure it goes without saying, but submerge the phone in rice overnight and all should be ok.

    The lens cleared up yesterday afternoon. I have an appointment today at the Apple Store but I am going to call and just have them keep a record of the problem. Obviously it is not sealed very well if condensation can enter and leave the device.

    I'd be worried about condensation evaporating and leaving dirt on the lens, which you then can't clean.

    We'll have to see if that happens.

    Uhh, I'd have it swapped out. I've used my iPhones in steamy bathrooms, hot and cold environments and I've never had condensation in the camera. That would tick me off BADLY cause I rely on the camera quite a bit.

    If only someone could dream up a snappy H2O-related '-gate' name for this problem...
