    My inside of my camera lens on my out-of-warranty iPhone 5s has filled with dirt. If I go to the Apple Store, will they clean it out for me at no charge? The phone isn't broken in any way.

    I doubt it since cleaning out the lens would require disassembling the phone to remove the lens, then disassembling the lens to clean it, then reassembling and realigning the lens elements, then reassembling the phone. All for some dirt? Ain't going to happen.

    Certainly not for free. I'd expect this to be put down as a repair and therefore quite expensive, if actually an option.

    What's in there, soil or dust? Seeing how it's supposed to be a sealed module nothing should be able to penetrate it unless you have damaged your phone.
