    I've noticed a cluster of small black dots in the top left corner of my iPhone 6s screen. I've only had it about a month and haven't dropped it or anything. It's kind of hard to see in the picture but it's really easy to see in person on a white background. What are they and can I fix them? Is it dust? Are they dead pixels? What are they and how can I fix them??? Please help!

    More dust, coming in the vibrate switch, to a screen that was sealed to prevent this from happening.:rolleyes:

    So it IS dust for sure? Because it doesn't really bother me that much, I just didn't want it to be broken. Is there anyway I can prevent more from showing up?

    It's 100% dust? Because it doesn't really bother me, I just don't want anything thing wrong with the screen. Is there anyway I can prevent it from happening more?

    Also when I tilt the screen they don't disappear, I saw somebody say if they're dead pixels they'll disappear for whatever reason, but they stay when I tilt it.

    If you carry your phone in your pants pocket dust gets in everywhere it can. The switch is a prime place. Apple would replace if you took it in . . . all depends on what YOU want to do.

    Right now it's not worth it because I live over an hour away from an apple store, but if it gets worse I'll have to take it in.

    Most cases still have this single switch exposed so you would have to look around for one that did I and decide if you could put up with the bulk. All new iPhones do not suffer this so sooner or later you need to get Apple to replace as it will not get better.

    How much money would it be to fix or replace this phone?

    I do not know, it would likely involve getting the screen replaced. While they are at it they could look and see why so much debris is able to get in the switch area.

    It's not dust getting in. It was already there. It's not possible for dust to get in the screen. It's sealed. If you saw it you would understand. Also very rare for dust to enter the switch as well.

    Steve Jobs would have never approved of the dust design. Apple is dead!

    Not true anymore with the 6S generation. While it looks sealed, it is not. I can guarantee you that dust can get in there, as it happened to me. Huge white speck visible with screen off. Mine is in the lower left corner and appeared three months after purchase. Getting my screen replaced tomorrow.

    I will not agree as I have a friend who's screen was perfect and yet of 4 months of use he is getting debris inside his screen right next to this switch. No possible way it has always been there as it stand out quite well now.

    Disagree. If you look at the screen and the switch, it's impossible for dust to get in there. More than likely, it's defective or it was already in there and never seen and with use is moving about. The screen is sealed.

    Impossible!

    LOL! "More than likely it is defective"

    We agree there for sure.

    Let me rephrase - A normal phone should have no issues with dust. A defective phone might. Under most circumstances, it's impossible to get dust under the screen.
