Just noticed this today when I took some quick photos of an Osprey plane flying over - 2, 3 specs in every shot, same spot with the overcast sky.

Anyone else have (or had) this issue?

Main question, does Apple Care take care of this?

Thanks!

** It's minimal, I realize that...but it slightly bugs me knowing it's there.

The might sound silly, but are you positive that the camera lens is clean on the outside?

Yep, I checked and triple-checked. cleaned the lens with soft mirco fiber.
I used a small super magnified jeweler's loop. I can see the tiny dust specs inside.

Few inside actually, but it seems there are 3 larger ones that just keep showing up.

It's very similar to what happens to DSLRS over time, dust gets on the sensor. At least I can open that and blow out as must as I can. The older phones, like 5, 6+ I had no issues of opening those, the X/XS/Max model seems to be a little more intimidating and I'm not about to attempt that.

I'll head to the Apple store this week and ask them about it, but the last time I told them I had an issue (iphone 6_ batter bulging pushing out my screen) they told me "Well you must have dropped it?" No....I didnt! Some Apple employees are cool, then there are a few that simply have this attitude and could not care.
