One day it was fine then in the afternoon a black spot appeared. I did not drop it or do anything out of the ordinary. The next day it changed shapes. Then it changed shape again and the following day it grew. Any ideas?

    I recall one other user reporting a similar problem.

    Try the following to rule out a software problem:

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Restore from backup. See:                                 

    iOS: How to back up                             

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.
