You might want to reconsider getting the jet black iPhone 7

Unless you want a super-scratched-up phone...

If your soul is as black as Jenny Humphrey's eyeliner and your inner emo was ready to go back to 2009 then this may disappoint you.

The launch of the iPhone 7 brought a jet-black, shiny edition that looks sleek as hell and we wanted it ASAP.

But now, someone at The Verge has revealed some of Apple's fine print regarding how it scratches supppper easily.

Apple claims: "The high-gloss jet black finish was achieved through a new feat of design engineering — a remarkably precise, nine-step process of anodisation and polishing. The end result is so purely and continuously black, you can't tell where the aluminum ends and the glass begins." The dark side, indeed.

Apple even admit that buying a case would be necessary if you want the iPhone to be protected from scratches which we would probs do anyway but like, can you not?

Apple states: "Its surface is equally as hard as other anodised Apple products; however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use. If you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone."

#UGH.
