Apple finally admits it: these iPhones 'discolors' in your hands!

Have you decided to upgrade your smartphone and are thinking about shelling out for the new iPhone 15 Pro or even the iPhone 15 Pro Max? Then keep in mind that its frame may fade over time, although Apple offers a solution to this problem.

The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max went on sale on September 22. The new generation of Apple smartphones has got impressive cameras, USB-C and other cool new features. And it doesn't end there: Apple decided to give iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max a snazzy upgrade this year: instead of the usual stainless steel or aluminum, these premium models use a matte titanium frame. Such cutting-edge material can attract fans of sophisticated gadgets. Everything sounds great until the first reviews begin to arrive from those who purchased expensive models. After a few days of using the new gadget, some lucky owners of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max noticed that the titanium frame has noticeable color changes at the bottom and in the buttons. This happens mainly with mobile phones that come in the new colors added by the American company, we mean Blue Titanium and Natural Titanium. When comments from puzzled users began to reach the gadget manufacturer, the Cupertino corporation hastened to reassure them, informing them that the discoloration can be easily eliminated using a lint-free cloth with alcohol.

How to restore the original color of iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max?

As Apple clarified, titanium is painted completely differently than parts made from other metals, so it is very easy to stain it with grease on your fingers. The following instructions appeared on the page dedicated to cleaning iPhones:

"For iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, the oil from your skin might temporarily alter the color of the outside band. Wiping your iPhone with a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth will restore the original look."

It is recommended to use a a 75 percent ethyl alcohol wipe, a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox disinfectant wipes. Apple also warns against cleaning the iPhone case using soap, detergents or other cleaning products containing bleach or hydrogen peroxide. All of them can damage the case and even lead to device . And don't even think about submerging your iPhone in cleaning fluids or using compressed air.

Are you still thinking about getting the newest iPhone? Let us remind you that for those who want to purchase the basic iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Plus models, there is no problem with frame fading, because these smartphones have a classic aluminium frame, like previous models.
