Hello guys!

I took my iPhone 6's case of today and the apple logo on the back has like little marks which won't go after I wipe the apple logo, also the logo is really hard to clean.

Are any of you guys having the same problem, and how can I clean the apple logo without it looking smudged?

Thanks


- Siobhan

Once you get used to it, you'll never even care. I have a chip in the bottom left (not on the screen). At first I was super bummed, now I don't care. LOL. Fell out of a taxi because the cab driver opened the door without telling me. I'm still unsure how it exactly happened. LOL

It's not the end of the world. My 6s has a small scratch along the Apple logo, but I go on about my day.

the logo is stainless steel...
so technically you can use capecod cloth to buff out any scratches...
Thought I wouldnt recommend it - its bound to get scratched soon enough

That's mostly what it comes down to. It's worrisome early on, and then most basically move on as it's just another tool essentially.

I for one would like a good re-sale of my 6s for another. Good case, good screen protector, and I do care about it. ;)

Mines in a bumper and it's scratched up on 2 corners where I've dropped it. You can do your best but it really is a magnet for 'em.

That's why those zagg kiosk folks recommend a full covering, because more often then not, debris does work their way in between the case and phone and can scratch up a phone.

I bought that line of thought hook line and sinker. So far though from years of ownership, my iPhones have been in mint condition.

Yeah investing 50 bucks in 'protection' to get around 50 bucks more. I get my devices for me not for the person who might buy it some years later. I like the design and I want to see it. Period.

I look at the screen (most important), but what do I know, I'm an adult :p

sodo what's the point in getting a higquality build phone for an adult then? The os itself isn't the value of hundreds of euros worth.

It is possible that grit or debris got between your case and phone and it scratched the areas you are talking about.
This is the problem with cheap and nasty cases; they collect grit and dust and ruin the back of a good phone. Very few cases actually offer any protection though; aside from things that are scientifically sound (D3O cases for example). A £10 plastic case isn't going to do a thing except scratch up the aluminium.

Mine is scratched as well, but it had not do nothinf related to a case but instead I decided to leave it w/o a screen protector.

Next year I plan to go to the Apple Store and replaced the screen on demand (mine and my son's 6s), and give them both a new look and this time add them both screen protector. We get our phones every two years so we still have a long time to go with our 6s's

What? Cab driver's fault for opening door, really? Weren't you hanging onto your phone? Was it in your lap?
