    For those who use their iPhone 6S7 naked, have you ever had issues or concern with your wedding band causing scratches or scuffs on the phone? Of course this is something I'd imagine would happen over time if it did. I have a tungsten carbide ring and sometimes when I hear the ring rub against the side of the phone a small part of my cringes. I'm thinking it's a non issue but just wanted to survey some others.

    I use my right hand holding my 7plus. So my ring doesn't touch it

    Curious, what is the "6S7"?

    I'm married to my Apple gadgets, in fact I'm a polygamist. What wedding ring?

    No. I have a titanium wedding band. Never thought about it scratching my phone. Never really cared.

    I tend to hold my 6s+ between my fingertips with my index finger directly against the back of the phone and not flat in my hand so my ring never really contacts it.

    But, like @willmtaylor my band is also titanium so I don't really think anything of it the few times it actually knocks against the phone.

    My phone has no dents, dings, scratches, scuffs or anything else and it's been caseless for over a year.

    Usually I do. However I typically use two hands when actively using my iPhone (as opposed to simply reading on my phone in which case I hold it one handed) which means holding the phone in my left hand (wedding ring) and using my right to navigate.

    My tungsten ring could probably scratch the hell out of my phone if I tried. Fortunately it hasn't really been an issue on any of my phones.

    Use slim case if you prefer iPhone naked. That will solve it.

    Often hold my 6s in my left hand, my gold 5mm band doesn't actually touch it at all - even when picking it up or juggling it. It may be different with thicker bands.

    Same here. I've had my band too long to remember how thick it is, but it never touches the back of the phone and I use it primarily left handed.

    When I hold my phone in my left hand my ring is nowhere near the phone.
