According to BGR, several iPhone 6 owners that it has spoken to in the past few weeks have found that when they repeatedly place an uncovered iPhone 6 in the pocket of their denim jeans, the dye from the jeans is rubbing onto the plastic strips on the back of the phone. This apparently leaves the phone looking “dirty and old.”
Attempts to clean the plastic strips and return them to their former pristine glory using soap and other cleaning methods have apparently not been successful.
BGR even has photos of the damage, such as the one at the top of this post.
The BGR readers whose phones were affected in this way were told by Apple Support to scrub the back of the phones with cleaning products, but offered no more assistance beyond that.
So, is this an issue that Apple should be taking steps to address, or is it merely a question of iPhone owners being more careful about where they put their phones?
