If you think about pre-ordering the glossy jet black iPhone 7 for $1000 or more, you may want to shell out another few bucks for a case, Apple suggests.

Starting today, you will be able to order the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and they will get delivered to you a week from now, on September 16th. However, if you choose to go for the new glossy jet black finish, which Apple is especially proud of, it may be wise to hide it behind a case. That is exactly what Apple suggests on their iPhone 7 website, if you bother to scroll all the way down to read the fine print. We attached a screenshot right below for you to read.

Basically Apple is saying that the glossy black finish, which was achieved through a nine-step process, may show micro-abrasions over time. Apple does say, that the glossy version is as tough as the others but still recommends to use a case if you are worried about the possible or likely abrasions over time. It is kind of ironic, to buy such an expensive accessory and then hide it behind a cheap case if you ask me but hey, that's what Apple suggests you do. You have been warned.
