Apple has warned users that the all new Jet Black variant of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may easily get scratched while use. The company on its official specifications listing of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has clearly pointed out the possibility. “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 anodised Apple products; however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use.”
Apple recommends using a case with the Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to protect them from scratches. “If you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone,” the company adds.
Notably, the new Jet Black variants of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be only available in 128GB and 256GB storage models while other colours Gold, Silver, and Rose Gold, seen earlier as well, as well as the new ‘Black’ variant will come with the 32GB storage option as well.
Apple at its Wednesday event in San Francisco unveiled the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The Cupertino-based giant also made several new announcements including the new Apple Watch Series 2. After the event, the company also confirmed that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will launch in India on October 7. Without announcing the exact pricing details of all the models, Apple revealed that the price in India for the iPhone 7 starts at Rs. 60,000.
The new iPhone 7 series sports an all-new design and the rear antenna bands aren’t as prominent as feature. Both the phones feature brand new home button that includes force-sensitive technology and uses Taptic vibrations instead of physical tap. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus also come with IP67 water and dust resistance.
