    Hi,

    I've noticed a little red-ish dot has appeared above the screen on my iPod touch. Anyone know what it represents?

    I'm considering taking it back and getting a replacement as it's kinda annoying.

    Edit: Just found a picture http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=365020

    The people in that thread are suggesting it's the ambient light sensor... hmm.

    I thought that was the brightness sensor...?
    I've never seen mine turn red

    They are right, it's the ambient light sensor. Everyone has it, don't worry.
