    I’m guessing it’s the regulatory marks like CE?

    Everything has them so it doesn’t bother us :)

    The markings under “iPhone”. We don’t have that in the US anymore, it’s all in the settings area now.

    Yea I'm in the US, but you grow so numb of those markings it was really never a big deal it was on so many iPhones it's nice not to have them, but I could care less if they were there.

    They didn't bother me here in the US on previous phones but it sure is nice to see it only say iPhone and nothing else.

    When you live in a ridiculously over-regulated country, these things tend to happen.

    You lot buy expensive phones, to cover them with a case and then complain about markings on the back of the phone that you presumable never look at? Who cares lol

    I should get a tatoo of that CE logo complete with the “do not throw in the garbage” icon.

    How are we ever going to cope in Europe with these markings continuing on our iPhones? Help.

    Am I the only one who read this as “lots of love at the European version of the iPhone 8”? Then I realised you pesky kids have stolen our acronyms.

    I could have sworn that the EU parliament had ruled that manufacturers no longer had to display these signs on the outside of a product. Or was that only in the US? They don't bother me either way.

    I'd prefer this over the alternative any day, thanks.
