    My iPhone 6 developed a hairline crack across the bottom of the screen right above the home button. The phone was never dropped and it was protected by the Apple silicone case since launch day. Apple did end up replacing it as they should since this is clearly a defect with the glass. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen to their iPhone 6.

    and my apple store wants to charge me for replacing the glass where a small crack is originating from the button and going left - looks identical to the picture shown.

    Speak to a manager or try a different Apple Store. They have a policy to replace single hairline cracks under warranty. Make sure it's actually a single crack. If there's more than one, no go.

    thank you for this advice, worked out perfectly.

    Damn Apple, didn't let me feel oppressed, just passed it around to two guys and said, we'll replace it (and blame the sapphire guys for going out of business)

    Also got a single hairline crack from left to right side on my 6, replaced free with no questions asked. I love that new oleophobic coating feel:cool:
