    Hi people, can you help me diagnose a problem on my iP5? For about a week now, there's been a blotch in the same spot of all my photos. (See attachments -- it's in the top half, center of the images)

    I can't tell what's causing the problem. I looked at the lens under a hard light and magnifying glass but couldn't find a single scratch. Is this something that's inside the glass? Something like a dust particle on the inside of the lens? I've read about water causing something like this to happen, but it's been several days now and I doubt the water wouldn't evaporate or move by now, so I don't think it's that.

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Other people have reported this problem. Your best bet is to return it for an exchange.

    Yes they will exchange it, you still have the 1 year warranty on it, aka standard Applecare. The thing you didn't purchase is Applecare+, which covers things other than manufacturing defects and software issues.
