    I have the jet black but it's in a Spigen case since day one


    I never use any phone without a case, I have perfection OCD and having a phone with chipped paint or any scratch would make me not wanna keep it

    I have a MB. I've gone without a case a few times (very very few). Most often I use my peel case. No issues so far.

    It should still be under warranty. Return it for a replacement.

    I haven't and flat out refuse to put my iPhone 7 Plus in a case. I've dropped it, bumped it a few times while at work and yet, there isn't a nick, scrape, scratch, ding or crack on it. Furthermore, the color isn';t rubbing off or even fading. Having said that, what are you using to clean it with?

    not cleaning it with anything. just a cloth every now and then. I talked to apple and they said never heard of it doing that. Have to go to a store and see a tech.

    Oh okay. Well, let us know the outcome of your trip to the Genius Bar, if you don't mind.

    The slate iPhone 5 did the same thing so not really a surprise. The anodizing on the iPhone 7 is much stronger but no anodizing is perfect and is subject to wear.

    Good luck! and as D said, keep us updated. It's happened before but I'm sure tech is better with anodizing so I'd be surprised if it was a wide-spread issue.

    Wow, that's insane... I kinda wish there was a pic in this thread to see this, because I've never heard of color coming off an iPhone before. That happened with the slate iPhone 5??

    did you put it in and take it out of your pocket a lot?

    Yeah normal amount. I even told Apple
    That. I see if the phone was 7 months old that the polish would start coming off. But not this early in a phone.

    Yup. Google "iphone 5 paint rubbing off".

    The one in this thread looks like some wild wear, but have to take the OP's word for it nothing happened. Didn't happen to try to buff it to jet black, right?

    At the end of the day its just paint covering the device and its going to come off if it gets rubbed enough. I know its terrible to see something new look old in a matter of weeks. I would say, purchase a fear case, so you can still see the iPhone beauty and it will protect your colour

    I don't know about that.... it shouldn't be rubbing off in everyday use.

    I had that as well but I've learned to give it up and while I care I just don't find it an issue anymore.y iPhone 6 plus had micro scratches that I don't even see unless I go looking for them. I don't doubt my 7 will as well.

    Get a fear case?


    Seriously though I have the otterbox statement for my 7 and love it. Got it for my 6 plus and dropped it a few times with no damage so I will assume the same with this phone.
