    Hey all,

    I'm going to buy an iPhone 7 soon and I've decided to go Gold this time. Someone at work has a Gold 7 with a Midnight Blue leather case and it looks amazing.

    The only thing I was concerned about is the antenna lines discolouring. I remember hearing reports when the 6 first came out that the lines were turning blue in people's jeans and I just wanted to know if that issue had been resolved.

    If it hasn't, I'm wondering do they still discolour in coloured cases? I'm hoping not as the cases are a snug fit and won't rub on your phone like it moving around in jeans pockets.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have yet to see that. But based on the case, it's possible through temperatures and rubbing. Heat could cause the case to rub paint onto the antenna. If it does, I would try a microfiber cloth to help clear it.
