APPLE has admitted that its new iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models can change color – and not in a fun, atmospheric way.
According to the company, the titanium frames of these devices – a first for iPhones – can become discolored just from holding them.
On an updated support page, Apple writes: “On iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, the oil from your skin may temporarily change the color of the outer band.”
iPhone owners have been urged not to use aerosol sprays, spray cleaners, bleach or hydrogen peroxide products directly on their devices to resolve the issue.
These products may enter the phone through the speakers or charging port and cause internal damage.
Liquid damage is not covered by the Apple product warranty or AppleCare Protection Plans.
“If liquid gets into your Apple product, get help from an Apple Authorized Service Provider or the Apple Store as soon as possible,” the company writes.
Abrasive cleaners are also an absolute no-no as they can scratch the metal frame.
These cleaning rules apply to all iPhones.
While it may be disappointing news for people who spent a whopping £999 and £1,199 on the new Pro and Pro Max devices respectively, fortunately there is a simple solution.
Most read in “Phones and Gadgets.”
According to Apple, “Wiping your iPhone with a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth will restore its original appearance.”
Apple sells its own polishing cloth for £19.
But the microfiber cloth that you get for cleaning glasses works just as well.
However, this problem won’t arise at all if you simply invest in a case.
