If you thought the wireless earphone thingymajiggys were the only thing you might not like about Apple's new iPhone 7, you might wanna cover your ears (er, maybe not with those, though) when you hear about the latest thing everyone's worried about.

Why? Because someone over at The Verge has realised it the jet black iPhone 7 and 7 plus will be super easily scratched, due to it's shiny surface and polished finish. Ahh, dang.

Oh their website, Apple describes the new jet black design as follows:

"The high-gloss jet black finish was achieved through a new feat of design engineering — a remarkably precise, nine-step process of anodization and polishing. The end result is so purely and continuously black, you can't tell where the aluminum ends and the glass begins. The dark side, indeed.

Which sounds all pretty fancy and wonderful, right? Er, wrong actually - because when you read the small print, Apple actually reckon it's necessary to buy a case due to the 'micro-abrasions' (otherwise known as scratches) the handset will pick up.

It wrote:

"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 hard 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."

Admittedly we all use a case so much we've forgotten what colour our iPhone is anyway, but still. If you're buying the jet black one purely for it's colour, it seems to defeat the point really, doesn't it?
