Apple today announced its all-new iPhone 7 lineup, and with it introduced two new black finishes— a glossy piano black finish dubbed “Jet Black” and a charcoal black color more like the old Space Gray option that it’s simply calling “Black”.
The company warns buyers that its new “Jet Black” iPhone 7 might scratch easier than other models.
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.
So here are some great cases for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which offers everything from 2X Drop Protection, to the ability to hold 4 cards, all while remaining lightweight and slim.
Urban Armor Gear (UAG, urbanarmorgear.com)—leading designers of rugged, lightweight mobile device cases—recently announced five (5) different lines of MIL-SPEC Drop-Tested cases designed for Apple’s new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
