Apple Warns Buyers: Jet Black iPhone 7 Scratches Easy

Apple iPhone 7 Jet Black

Since Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 7 last week, fans have been salivating over the new Jet Black colorway.

However, if you're planning on getting one, be aware, they scratch easily... and Apple even warns its customers of this.

The glossy new finish may be beautiful, but that shine doesn't last. According to a disclaimer on Apple’s own website:

The high-gloss finish of the Jet Black iPhone 7 is achieved through a precision nine-step anodization and polishing process. Its surface is equally as are 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.

Despite the warning, pre-order numbers for the iPhone 7 suggest that the Jet Black look is still the most popular. If you haven't yet, you can head over to to pre-order yours.
