There is a random dark spot showing up on my pictures?!?!

    Has anyone else encountered this? I just noticed it about an hour ago when taking some pictures.

    Here are some examples that demonstrate it:

    Notice the black spot on the wall. In the far away pic it's pretty small. When I zoom in when taking a photo it shows much bigger in the photo and in a different part of the screen. I went back and looked at my previous camera roll photos and it's present in all of them - I just never noticed it.

    This is a launch-day iPhone 5.


    Genius Bar appointment already set for tomorrow afternoon.


    Has anyone else had this issue? It happens with EVERY photo I take. There is nothing on the lens, either, so that's not it.

    I had a weird spot as well, needless to say they replaced the phone

    Interesting. I wonder what causes it? :confused:

    Also, what are the odds they have phones to replace it with in stock?

    I'll give them a call in the morning.

    Dust, and there a few members this has happened to. They will give you a replacement in a white box (not refurb according to most)

    I sure hope it's not a refurb. :(
