Apple has warned users that the all new Jet Black variant of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may easily get scratched while use. The company on its official specifications listing of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has clearly pointed out the possibility.

Its surface is equally as hard as other anodised Apple products; however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use."

Apple at its Wednesday event in San Francisco unveiled the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The Cupertino-based giant also made several new announcements including the new Apple Watch Series 2. After the event, the company also confirmed that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will launch in India on October 7. Without announcing the exact pricing details of all the models, Apple revealed that the price in India for the iPhone 7 starts at Rs. 60,000.

The new iPhone 7 series sports an all-new design and the rear antenna bands aren't as prominent as feature. Both the phones feature brand new home button that includes force-sensitive technology and uses Taptic vibrations instead of physical tap. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus also come with IP67 water and dust resistance.
