    I've been with my iPhone 5 since november, and last week I noticed that when taking pictures three dirt "things" appear in the pictures. At first I thought it was because the lens was dirty but it looks like it's clean. And the three spots that appear are way too big to be just dust. You can see it pretty clear and they are really annyoing when taking pictures.

    Is this covered by Apple warranty?

    Thank you.

    Yes. It is probably dust under the lens.

    I brought mine into an Apple store last week for the exact same thing....a few pieces of lint had found its way into the lens. My iPhone5 was always in an Otterbox case, never dropped, etc.

    Made a Genius appointment....they took a look....and literally 30 seconds later I had a new iPhone 5.

    Gotta love their customer service !
