    I noticed that i have a tiny dent in the top right corner on my iphone 6 plus, it's maybe a mm big. It's cosmetic, but bothers me, is there anything to be done to fix it? Im still in the 1st year warrantee, is it worth going to an apple store or will i just look foolish?

    It's physical damage, it would not be covered under warranty.

    Let it go man! These are mobile devices. I just dropped my 6 on my basement floor last night when I of course had it out of the case for like 1 minute and it put a little dent in the corner and for a second I felt my face get hot and I felt the OCD coming on but then.... I took a breath and I let it go! :)

    Can it be covered up with a case? At least then you won't see it any more. I went without a screen protector for a few weeks and could see some micro scratches that drove me nuts - put on a screen protector and no more micro scratches - at least that I can see now. #

    You will just look foolish.
    Unless you want to pay for a replacement.
    It's not a manufacturer defect if you dropped your phone.

    Live with it. My iPhone 6 Plus without a case it had huge dent I have to accept it because it slipped out of my hand and fell it on the floor of subway. Also I have to accept those scratches on all 4 glass corners. I decided it is enough of dropping so I went and bought cheap screen protector (from Walgreen) 2 weeks ago and I ordered a case from eBay last week it was delivered today. Now I don't have to worry about it anymore. :apple:

    By the way camera on the back have tiny hairline crack along with ring around the camera scratched I am not sure how it happened. I have to accept it too. My iPhone 5S was so perfect..no dents or scratch at all!

    I'd take care of that OCD issue first

    It's always frustrating when you damage your precious possessions. I completely sympathise with you, sorry you have to see this dent. May I recommend a high quality TPU gel case? I wouldn't bother going to replace it... unless you're a millionaire with a desire for perfection (I have to have a SERIOUS word with myself, when I feel I am being overly picky - believe me, I am JUST like this, and often with *microscopic* defects that the 'average man' wouldn't spot in a million years)

    LOL OCD I would say not, I just prefer to try to keep things nice when I can and it makes sense. Especially if I can cover up something that is damaged just makes sense to take away the minor irritation. I've known people that are truly OCD and it's a terrible condition that takes over the person's life.

    Thankfully both my husband and I are similar so we both tend to care of things the same way.

    This attitude helped me get a replacement 4S from Apple that was out of warranty. They inspected the physical quality of it before deciding it was okay. It's always worth looking after your property, be it a phone, car, house, whatever.

    Use a micro-dent puller. Looks just like a dent puller for cars but micro sized for phones and small gadgets. Works like a charm.

    Really though, the dent doesn't create itself. It was caused by physical force and damage. Apple will not cover anybodies mistakes.

    purchase a case

    Once there is a dent on a phone, you cant do much about it. Be grateful that the dent is only a mm. Please purchase a phone case and get yourself a screen protector.

    I went caseless with my iPhone 5. I even got a replacement about 1 year into my warranty due to camera issues and it still ended up with a bunch of damage to the edges by the time I upgraded. The iPhone 6 plus is super slippery without a case so the next day I picked the apple leather and a screen protector. Such a good investment. I don't drop it all that often but it's definitely saved my corners a few times. Besides, the protector has this interesting matte look to it, which is great on the phone.

    The best thing i would say to do is just go online and search for a iPhone 6 Plus she'll color changer and just get the same color your have or a different one and have somone professionally install it or do it yourself

    Thanks for the help. But just a suggestion since you are new. Check out the age of the thread to gage relevancy. Since this was started over 8 months ago and lasted 4 days, the solution if any, was most likely implemented.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Hide it with a case bro! Cosmetic damage like this is to be expected for you folks that choose not to use a case. At least I'm just guessing that you don't use a case on your iPhone. That's exactly what's going to happen to those of you who choose not to use a case. I use a case, therefore I have no cosmetic damage
