    I just realized red spot (when white background ie settings app) at the left top edge of the screen on my 6s+. I dont think its a software issue as i upgraded to 9.3 beta 6. Did anybody else have such issue with iphone/ipad?

    I'd just restore the phone back to 9.2 and see if it stops. If not, then it's probably a hardware issue and apple will replace it. I wouldn't be too surprised if it's just a software issue, even though I haven't had issues with any of the 9.3 betas.

    Its actually happens when night shift is enabled. Otherwise the red spot is invisible. I really hope its not a hardware issue.

    Ok I disabled iOS night shift and installed app FlexBright. With FlexBright's night shift there are no red spots. So I guess I just proved its a software problem came with Beta 6. An interesting software issue though...

    Few days ago, out of the blue, my 6s+ also developed a darker grey little shadow in the exact same corner. It's not visible on pure white / black / solid color backgrounds, but I can clearly spot it in the corner of dock bar's grey area if I turn the phone clockwise / horizontally and have the home screen in landscape mode. Probably a backlight issue rather than a software one. I remember seeing something similar at my old 6 last year. Screens are not what they used to be anymore unfortunately...

    Last year I had my 6s+ swapped for free as a whole under warranty by the Apple Authorized service. I don't know how they currently approach this issue (whether they still replace the unit as a whole or they replace only the display assembly).
    Since this definitely bothers you, my advice is to bring it to Genius Bar and see what's their opinion.
    Good luck!

    Hi Nickelro,

    Can you please help me with what the 'Genius Bar' is all about ?

    I have submitted my phone today at apple authorised service centre and waiting for their response .But can you please tell me whether is it considered under physical damage( not included in warranty) or liquid damage( not included in warranty) or they will repair and give it to me for free??

    Hi DevenJain,

    Here is the detailed info about the Genius Bar: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genius_Bar

    It's great you already brought it in. Up next their engineers should inspect your device (e.g open it and visually check the built-in LCIs that will show them whether the device has been in contact with water or a liquid containing water). Then they should apply the in-place service policy whether to repair (or exchange) your device / screen for free (or at a cost if that's the case, which they'll normally comunicate to you prior applying the service procedure).
    Keep us posted!

    Hi Nickelro,

    Thank you for all the help :)

    Yeah let's hope for the best that my phone gets repaired or replaced without spending a single penny.

    By the way... when your phone was replaced did you ask them what was the issue exactly ?

    Fingers crossed this will end up well for you with zero costs involved.

    I did not asked them, but I assume they silently admitted that there was a issue with the display itself.

    Btw, in my knowledge there were many 6 / 6+ & 6s / 6s+ featuring this issue out of the blue after few weeks / months of use. I also remember that 2 years ago I had the same issue on my 6 and sold it with that issue when the time to upgrade to 6s+ came.
