What's so hard to understand? Apple warranties their products for a year. Doesn't matter that you never dropped your phone. Your warranty EXPIRED. That's life.
You can choose to be disappointed. That's on you. Apple lived up to it's contract with you--namely the one year warranty. Doesn't matter if it's 22 seconds or 22 years after the warranty expires that you had your problem. THE WARRANTY IS EXPIRED.
Stop being such a whiner. If you're expecting sympathy here, you've come to the wrong place.
