The Jet Black iPhone 7 model is a huge fingerprint and scratch magnet
Apple Inc. (NASADQ:AAPL) has finally launched its much-awaited seventh-generation iPhones which have already broken the preorder record set by previous-generation iPhones. Interestingly, the new Jet Black version of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have managed to generate the greatest consumer demand in the market. Before officially selling its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the Cupertino-based tech giant announced that the Jet Black iPhone 7 models have been completely sold out, creating a shortage for the specific color. However, it turns out that you might just want to think really hard before purchasing this color which is being dubbed as a fingerprint and scratch magnet.
We all know that glossy materials are highly prone to fingerprint stains and scratches and it is no different for the Jet Black iPhone 7 models. Multiple reviews for the particular iPhone model reveal that the device easily gets scratched with everyday use. Also, the glossy finish on the smartphone means you will be in a constant struggle to wipe out those pesky fingerprint stains off your device. Furthermore, users can see the full extent of damage inflicted on their Jet Black iPhone 7 models by placing the smartphone under direct sunlight. It seems like the only way to keep your Jet Black iPhone model scratch or fingerprint free is to get a case for the device but you do not buy an expensive smartphone to keep it caged up.
If you are dead-set on purchasing the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus in Jet Black, then we would highly recommend that you either get a decent case for your device or consider another color option for the device. The new Matt Black iPhone 7 is a great option as it limits the visibility of fingerprints or scratches on the device.
