The iPhone 7 was released last week to a great fanfare and the stunning new jet black version looks to be ‘must have’ from the new line up.
However, while it looks stunning it will be highly prone to scratches and show up more micro abrasions than any other phone on the market today.
Apple had made a big deal about the new jet black iPhone 7, highlighting that it achieved a “remarkably precise, nine-step process of anodisation and polishing” process. But this comes with a disclaimer too.
“The high-gloss finish of the jet black iPhone 7 is achieved through a precision nine-step anodisation and polishing process. Its surface is equally as hard as other anodized Apple products; however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use. If you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone.”
Other colours are available for those who are concerned about scratches with matte finish likely to show fewer scratches and be more robust when it comes to everyday general wear and tear.
Of course you could be the jet black iPhone 7 in a case in order to help protect it but then that kind of defeats the point.
After releasing pricing details of the new Apple Watch 2 and AirPods, the Cupertino firm is expected to announce official pricing of the iPhone 7 in Thailand later this week.
