Guys, I’d really appreciate your advice. I bought the Iphone XS on launch day, and have been using it happily ever since.

However, revisiting the packaging, I got concerned. I noticed the packaging is dented in two of the upper corners on the left side, one more than the other (2mm or so).

The phone seems to be working fine. However, I’m concerned it must have been quite a hard fall/hit since the box is quite sturdy, and could therefore have damaged the internals of the phone in a way that will only show in the long run.

What is your opinion on this? How common of an occurance are these dents on the corners of the box? Am I simply having the classic and neurotic ”new-Apple device”-jitters?

I remember one time I was shipped a phone that had a box beat up on the outside. No issues with the inside box or phone. They pack those things well enough that nothing will happen to them.
