iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max colour changing issue

Apple in its support page about cleaning your iPhone has mentioned about the possible colour change on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. As spotted by MacRumors, the Pro models’ titanium build is prone to fingerprint smudges which might lead to the colour temporarily changing. This issue has also been raised on Reddit who highlighted the discolouration near the volume and action buttons. But this isn’t permanent and can be easily wiped off. 

“For iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, the oil from your skin might temporarily alter the color of the outside band. Wiping your iPhone with a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth will restore the original look,” Apple said in the support page.

So if you’ve bought or are planning to get the iPhone 15 Pro models, this is something you should be prepared for. But seeing how it isn’t a permanent issue it shouldn’t really be a problem. And it would also make one take extra care of their iPhones. 

Separately, Apple appears to have done something to prove the authenticity of iPhone 15 boxes. According to a video shared on X, iPhone 15 boxes have certain labels and QR codes that are visible only under UV light. This is reportedly a new way for consumers to know that their iPhone 15 units are genuine. The labels are at the back of the iPhone 15 box.
