    Today I noticed a speck of dust inside the camera housing on my iPhone X. It’s not on the lens but off to the side of one of the lenses. If this were to move and end up on the lens, what sort of trouble am I asking for later on down the road?

    This issue surfaced the forums when the X was first released. Users said that Apple was willing to replace the phone for you if you take it in to the Genius bar.
    If your worried about issue affecting camera quality down the road, I would for sure take it in to Apple. Since this issue does not impact you right now, just take it in anytime your free as the dust speck should not be your main priority. Just make sure to take it in before your over year AppleCare expires.

    If you were overly concerned, you could address it with Apple and explore what your options are. But generally the dust does not move, because Of static electricity and there is no air movement inside the housing. But if you were curious to see others similarities to your incident, here is a thread below with over 350 posts:

    No one here can tell you what that is. How would anyone know. Take it back or send it in is the only answers anyone can give you like in the previous threads

    So contact Apple directly through online chat or phone, and they can send you a warranty device in place of you returning your device, assuming they can replicate/indicate what you’re referring too.

    If he doesn’t have the funds then he’s just wasting his time. They will need a credit/debit card to hold $1090.90 until they get his current phone back.

    You’re correct in a sense. Once Apple confirms They need your debit/credit card, the customer should know that they have the funds available or not. However, If they don’t have the funds available from their debit, then they likely revert to a credit card assuming they have one.
