My iSight camera just broke - Apple no longer replacing for free?

    In short, the iSight camera on my iPhone 6+ is producing blurry photos and it looks like the camera is "vibrating" within the display. I searched my serial number on this page about the problem, but nothing came up.

    This just happened about a week ago. I have a Genius Bar appointment on Tuesday and my question is does Apple still stand by their equipment and will fix this free of charge or has the statute of limitations run out and I'll be forced to pay for repairs? Thanks.

    they do.. you have 1 year warranty (or 2 if you got apple care).. anything after that is considered out of warranty and you will be charged.

    the camera got tired of your selfies ;)

    If only it was the front-facing camera. That one I can live without. Anyone know what the retail price is for replacing the iSight?

    Go to you GB appointment and see what they say. It's possible you may get the fix.
    The problem could be affecting more 6P's than they are aware of.
