Why Is There A Black Spot On My Phone Camera?

The major reason why you’re seeing a black spot on your iPhone camera is that there’s a dust trap between the lens and the camera screen. This is just it and no other issue could have caused this.

How To Fix Black Spot on iPhone Camera 

Go through the following troubleshooting tips on how to fix black spots on the iPhone camera without spending a dime:

Fix 1: Shift the dust particles

If you notice a black spot on your iPhone, this must be because of some sort of dust on either the front of the lens, behind the lens, or on the sensor itself.

Because the accumulation of dust on the camera may cause obstructions, leading to the appearance of black spots on the screen.

In this case, it needs to be clean. You’ll need to go to an Apple repair store for them to open and clean and dust out of the lens or glass protecting it.

Another option to solve the black spot problem on your iPhone camera is to stand the iPhone straight and push it back or forward. This will either fall on the camera or screen side.

When you do this the small dust particles will move to any position. If this doesn’t work at first continue repeating the process.

You can try this on your bed to avoid getting your screen cracked. This option has worked for most users and it may too for you.

Fix 2: Replace the Screen

Have you mistakenly dropped your iPhone from your hand recently? If so, some parts of the screen might have been badly damaged.

And because of this, you might start seeing black spots and blurs when taking pictures.

If that is the case, you may need to visit a professional to replace the damaged screen. (Don’t try figuring it out by yourself, you may cause more damage)

Fix 3: Remove the Screen/camera Protector

Screen/camera protectors may be the cause of the black spot issues, so it is best to remove the camera/screen protector.

Most people do this to protect the camera in case the phone fall so the camera screen will not be damaged. If you have to use the camera protector, you’ll have to remove it.

Conclusion

As said earlier, a black spot on the iPhone camera is a common issue with iPhone devices, and the good news is that it can be fixed.

You just need to shake your phone a little bit for the dust to move to another position. If this doesn’t work, you can ask a professional Apple phone repairer to open and clean it out.
