    So earlier today I was taking pictures of math notes with my iPhone 7 Plus, and as I was looking at the pictures, I noticed something... There was a little multicolor splotch on the picture. I thought it was on my screen but when I tried to scratch it off, it moved with the photo. I zoomed in and it zoomed with it. I checked all other pictures I recently took and the splotch was only on the photos taken in the last 24 hours. I checked and cleaned my camera lens and there doesn't seem to be any scratches or smudges capable of producing such a spot. When using my camera, it zooms in when I zoom, and remains in focus whenever the picture is out of focus. This tells me that there might be something wrong with the camera itself...

    It doesn't effect my use of the iPhone camera, but it sure is annoying![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's a bunch of hot pixels on the CMOS sensor. Most digital cameras have this defect, but not to this extent.

    If it doesn't go away over the next week, take to the store. They may be able to recalibrate the sensor or repair/replace the phone.

    First, I hate Math. It's a foreign language to me. I give you credit for figuring that out what you have on paper.

    As far as the camera is concerned, I have never seen this before. I would think it's definitely hardware related being its occurring on your recent photo's. I would contact Apple on this one.

    If it's always in the same location you may have an issue with your sensor. That doesn't look normal at all.

    There is little doubt you have some stuck and bad pixels on you image sensor. If under warranty, Apple should replace the camera module or device.

    Actually last year when I was traveling, I have very similar stuff happened to my camera, but with the difference that mine only happens when using the 2x telephoto lens. I went to Apple store and they replaced camera module for me ASAP.

    Sadly I can't find pictures but mine was more obvious than yours...I guess if you go to Apple Store they should be able to fix it for free...

    Agreed. I would think Apple would take care of this, being seems to be a rare issue and it would be under warranty.
