Apple warns there’s a catch to that black, you’ll need an iPhone 7 case, unless you want it scratched.

Apple warns there’s a catch to that black, you’ll need an iPhone 7 case, unless you want it scratched.

I’m sure you’ve been eyeing that nice, jet black, look since the new iPhone was announced.

Unfortunately there is some bad news about that black.

The glossy jet black finish for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus are highly susceptible to micro abrasions. That means light scratches, like scratches from setting it on a table a few times. The display phone didn't take long to start blemishing considering. This was taken in San Francisco at the announcement of the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7plus 2016 just a few days ago.

It’s easy to imagine what everyday use would look like after only a few months.

But don’t take our word for it, here’s Apple’s.

This was left as a footnote under the jet black description. Looks like we’ll need an iPhone 7 case that doesn’t cover it all up if we’re going to enjoy that glossy jet black in all its glory.

That means you’ll need something thin, transparent, and can at least handle a few falls.

Looks like the iPhone 7 otterbox is out. 

Those type of cases cover up your whole phone anyways.

Your first choice may be a tacky looking clear iPhone 7 case, but they can’t handle drops that are any harder than the carpet. Here’s a iPhone 7 cover that protects while not getting in the way of the elegant design we all love.

The Shock by Zizo.

It’s Military Grade Drop Tested, lightweight and slimfit case.

You’ll be able to see that nice jet black in pristine condition no matter the fall.

It’s on sale too for more than 50% off to celebrate the release of the iPhone 7.

If you want a little bit more protection. I’m sure the black will look good covered up and just peaking out a bit around the edges and around the camera slot. Like it does here on the Bolt.

The Bolt is also Military Drop Tested but comes with a tempered glass screen protector for free. This heavy duty iPhone 7 case is on sale for the release party for only $17.99.

Of course if you’re not into phone cases, there’s always the option of going out naked.

Naked, without a case I mean.

If that’s the option you choose, maybe the glossy black wouldn’t be the best choice if you like having your things looking brand new. Apple has released several color options for the iPhone 7 and the matte black looks good too.

How to get the most life out of your phone’s battery

Letting your phone get down to 20% or less, is just as stressful as getting a full charge.

It’s even worse to let it go down to 0% and then fully charging it again.

The spike in voltage from 0-100 is only good every once in awhile. Experts recommend maybe once a month is good for a battery to reset it.
