IPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users complain about how easily their screens get scratched



IPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users complain about how easily their screens get scratched


Defects in the material and design of the new iPhone 6 would be causing a greater number of scratched screens

Many users had high expectations when the first rumors appeared that the iPhone 6 could incorporate a sapphire glass screen, because this could eliminate one of the biggest fears that every iPhone owner has: that the screen will be scratched. However, finally said rumors could not materialize and the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus implemented a reinforced Ion-X glass screen, following an ion implantation procedure.

Although Apple claimed during the keynote that it was the toughest screen they had ever made, many users seem to disagree with these statements. As can be seen in the Apple support forums, many users complain that your devices are much more susceptible to scratches, as we can see in the image that we leave you just below.

The topic in question has more than 100,000 views and 626 comments, data that reflects that it is not an isolated problem by any means. Many of the users who have commented have assured that despite taking “extremely” good care to their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, it has been impossible to avoid scratching its screen.

To date, the specific material used to make the screen of the new iPhone 6 has not been revealed, although it is believed to be Gorilla Glass 3 renamed by Apple. One of the most extreme cases is that of a user who carried his phone in a microfiber case and that, as can be seen in the image above, the screen has small scratches that seem to have been caused by a hard surface.

So far the specific material used to make the screen of the new iPhone 6 is not known

Different theories are being considered that could explain why the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are more prone to scratches than other previous versions. For example, it is the first generation to use curved glass that adheres directly to the aluminum frame, so it does not have a protective bezel as in previous generations.

As pointed out in Appleinsider, the company has not yet officially responded to those affected by this problem, although many of them explain that they could replace it with a new one by taking it to an Apple Store. However, others claim that they were unable to change the device, so there is still no protocol to follow in these cases.

Do you have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? Has this problem happened to you?
