I can't really see them not replacing that. Unless there is some drop damage somewhere else in the phone. But if your phone hasn't been dropped that's a manufacture defect.

Welcome to the lovely world of Apple QC. I can't tell you how many iphone 4S's, 5's, and 5S's I have had due to quality control issues.

Buy the fanboy on here will say your negligence caused it because Apple is perfect.

Thats dirt or a scratch. Not a crack.
Probably a bit of sand in your case?

Yeah, It has never been dropped. I just think it is interesting that it is so close to the screw. It is a very small hairline crack that is difficult to see with the eye. I photographed it with a 100mm Macro lens and the pic is a 100% crop.

Actually I am kind of a fanboy, lol. I debated if I should even post this, or keep quiet and go right to the Apple store. I know QC sometimes has issues, especially in the beginning of a production run. I actually had a bizarre screen issue on a "launch day" Late 2012 27" iMac too.

I would be more surprised if it wasn't next to a screw. What I'm surprised about is that it's cracked and not bent. They keep saying how soft the aluminum is. I would expect that soft aluminum wouldn't crack without being bent.

While obviously I can only see the picture the OP posted, I'm thinking it's a (deep) scratch rather than a crack.

upon further review, it does appear to be a very deep scratch. I can feel it with my fingernail, but slightly flexing the area, it doesn't appear to "open up" or change.

I reported the thread to be deleted. Thanks guys!
