    Hey,

    My iPhone 6s' apple logo has like lines going through it at all angles, but they are only visible in sunlight and I was wondering if every iPhone has these or if they are scratches? I only bought the phone yesterday and have had a case on it ever since.

    Thanks

    Im going away on holiday tomorrow, so if I could get some replys ASAP, that would be excellent! :)

    Your phone is fine. The lines are fine. The Apple logo is fine. Relax and enjoy your holiday.

    It shouldn't have scratch but eventually it does scratch. My 6 Plus has some scratches on the apple logo overtime. But of course that's without using a case.

    If you are using a case all the time, there should not be a scratch, unless you take it off the case and you clean it but maybe a particle got stuck in the cloth that you are using to clean the phone with.

    Mine has no scratches. I'm using an official apple case with mi iPhone. Probably it is your case that is scratching the back of your phone

    My iPhone has a silicone official apple case, but my old iPhone 6 Plus had the same lines on the apple logo, when it was brand new out of packaging, so could this be just normal?

    Anywhere from 0-17 lines is within manufacturer spec, so long as no one line has a max diameter exceeding 0.04 mm.

    I think I'm going to have to take my iPhone to a genius bar.

    I agree. You need a very accurate micrometer to get a good measurement.

    I really think your phone is fine. I use a case that completely covers the logo, and that way I don't see it and don't worry about it.

    Magnifying comparator works well for this.

    I have came to the conclusion that I may be a little OCD, the phone is in perfect condition and I may have gone OTT when worrying about it. Thank you for all your replies!

    The Apple Logo is easily scratched, that's probably what happened.

    My First Gen iPod Touch doesn't have any scratches on the Apple Logo because the logo was a matte finish.

    A difficult concept to breach, but next time post a photo so people know what you're talking about and can further keep your "OCD" in check.

    Apple sets very high standards when hyping their products. Standards higher than Apple can achieve in many cases. Unfortunately, they paint a picture of perfection, a very unreasonable image in the minds eye of customers.

    Do you ever post anything that's actually constructive? Or is your existence here solely to create enmity and derision?

    You don't_have_ to read others real world experiences. Surely there's some fantasy site to please you. Google will show you.

    That's what I thought. Just making sure.

    What can cause the apple logo to scratch, could it have been done in the factory or could it just be part of the design?
