    I recently noticed that the backing on my iPad mini is wearing off. I haven't dropped it, and I treat it like a baby(like I I'd all my iOS items)! Do you guys think it's normal or should I return it? It's not that big of an issues but it's getting worse.

    There is a photo of it below.

    Thanks in advance

    This is like scuff gate for the iPhone 5 ;)
    Apple will charge extra money for a replacement (that is what they did for me for my scuffed iPhone) so don't replace yours now. If you want to get rid of that mark, then try this stuff called Birchwood Casey. It is meant for aluminum gins with the same color, but it does the trick. Here is a link for some. Make sure you get flat back. This should restore its color, and it will look good again ;)
    Good luck and please keep us posted.
