A new problem with respect to the iPhone 7 has taken force among the users of the device. According to the comments that are seen in various photos of Apple users, the latest version of the iPhone is presenting problems of paint wear on the edges. Specifically, users report seeing wear and tear is the iPhone 7 black matte model, the smallest model.
Apparently, Apple Support has not been useful to replace or repair the affected devices , calling it a cosmetic defect discovered.
Users complain about iPhone 7 paint wear
As you can see 9to5mac some users have described in their iPhone 7 user forums their experiences with this problem
The paint is starting to turn on the grille of the speaker and is very disappointing from Apple. I have never dropped or hit the phone against anything, said one of the users.
Other affected areas appear to include the back of the device near the Apple logo and around the volume buttons:
I have the same problem with my iPhone 7 more in black mate before. The wear started in the back near the Apple logo the first week of use and in the second week I noticed the same problem in the loudspeakers and corners of the volume knob.
Some users report that they have been able to remedy the problem with basic acrylic paint by attending local stores, but that, of course, will not prevent other areas of the device from wearing out.
Obviously, wear is expected with something worn as often as an iPhone, but many users affected by this problem report that paint wear begins right after their purchase.
It is not clear how widespread this problem is at this time and is not known if a response from Apple is guaranteed, but has raised an alert among users of iPhone 7 mate, who perhaps saw this wear as normal.
