    I bought the IPhone 10 recently and I'm curious on what it's made out of. I know it has glass but what are the rims/side of the phone made of and are the rims scratch proof?

    Sorry for all the questions.
    Thanks for answering!

    Stainless steel. Not scratch proof.

    Some say the Space Black is more scratch resistant, However light scratches in the pure stainless of the White version can be buffed out... deeper scratches will always be permanent. If the black version is scratched or chips, the damage is permanent.

    Apple classifies the bands on the iPhone X as surgical grade stainless steel. The stainless bands on the silver iPhone X will scratch. The bands on the space gray iPhone X have a physical vapor deposition coating, which is allegedly more scratch resistant.
