    Hi, I have a Iphone 6 plus. I notice that there is a tiny black stain at the top left corner of the screen, but not sure what is it. Do anyone have any solutions to fix it? Thanks! :)

    Taking it to an Apple Store and getting either the screen replaced or the phone replaced is probably your only options.

    well that corner is problematic in the first place... I have had some issue with that side as well. Its funny its not there in a phone out of the box but it comes in later on.... not sure that is under that area.

    I am sure apple would know about it but 70% of the users would not even notice it due to it being a small issue.

    I would love to get in touch with the apple hardware guys one days and show them

    It's a backlight issue. Take to store and it'll get fixed/replaced for free if it's within warranty.

    Ah, the Backlight - one of the most inconsistently manufactured parts and arguably the weakest component in an otherwise top notch Smartphone.

    My solution would be a dark wallpaper and try to forget about it

    Few days ago, out of the blue, my 6s+ (bought in October) 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. Screen quality is not what it used to be anymore unfortunately...

    The same issue happened to my iPhone 6s. Got the screen replaced for free under warranty.
