Dust in camera lens, how to proceed

I have found a partial of dust which is affecting my new 4S camera.

Is there an easy way to remove it myself, I.e releasing back cover or is the lens sealed?

Many Thanks.

iPhone 4S Teardown

this is the tear down from here, seems that if it is the back camera it will be relatively easy as it is accessible with removing just the back panel, I guess it depends exactly where the dust is.

You may need a special pentalobe screw driver if you don't have one and your phone has those screws these should be relatively cheap to acquire.

I have the same problem.

Will it void the warranty if I open it up?

Thank you in advance!

just open the screw's at the bottom , open the back cover ....... blow air or clean it wit a dry cloth .... your problem is solved ... but this is not permanent ...... the dust keeps on coming .....
