    I did the same a week ago and I see that I didn't wipe the screen well enough before I installed the glass protector.
    There's a few pieces of dirt here and there but not sure if I want to try removing and reinstalling. It's not bothering me that much and I know it's not inside the screen but between the glass and the protector I installed.

    Get a new screen protector ....specially if you only noticed it after you installed the tempered glass screen protector

    Another theory that could come in to play is what if the dust was there and now the glass screen protector magnified it to 10x bigger and you can see it better and bothers you , your Dad and your Mom.
    If that's the case I'd sue the glass protector manufacturer for magnifying an exist problem and causing further distress to your household...

    I hate installing those things. I always seem to mess them up.

    I'd go right now before it gets even worst. Or try holding the vacuum on the screen to see if it's sealed correctly. If dust comes off then try that flex seal on the edges. The one they advertise as seen on tv.
    It could be a bad gasket.

    Is it possible a speck of dust gets on the screen protector, you stick it on the phone, and then the dust is stuck to the screen?

    But, you also risk the new iPhone having a bigger problem.

    Just have him get a new tempered glass screen protector and have someone who is good at applying them do the job. That's what I do; I can't install those things worth a crap.
