    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!

    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.

    Exactly!

    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
