    I'm sorry if this question sounds condescending; it's not meant to: Can you wipe it off?

    And it's dust, not scratches? I'd try to see if it'll come off with a q-tip with some isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.

    Update took it to the Apple Store a technican took a look at and its normal does not affect my iPhone she tried to clean with air compressor couldn't get it out but told me not to worry about it she didn't want to replace the display
    I will just leave the dust in there till I upgrade to the iPhone 7 plus in September

    Don't know maybe due to the dusty area you live around

    I had a few HTC phones in the past and dust got into the side bezel, drove me nuts, but yeah no reason it will effect the phone in any way usability wise..

    Why would someone complain if it did not effect the performance of the device. There are more important things to worry about that DO matter.
