Known globally for his important profile and achievements regarding Worldwide Marketing and an important Apple figure, Phil Schiller shares his point of view in the up to date concern of the newest product, the iPhone 5′s scratches and scuffs on its anoid cover.
Phil Schiller answered some e-mail with this topic, telling pre-order customers that received their iPhone scratched, that it is a normal thing and once the carbon like materiel peels of it reveals its original, silver color.
9to5Mac claims to have obtained an email exchange between a concerned user and Phil Schiller.
The dents can only be skin deep until in reaches the metal cover and the smartphone can’t be affected. Horror stories are now proven not to be true, because the anodizing process even increases the thickness of the natural layer.
As found in some iPhone 5 durability tests, back of the black iPhone 5 tends to scratch much easier than its glass-backed iPhone 4/4S predecessors as you can see here on iFixit’s iPhone 5 rear case scratch test.
