Don’t be alarmed: the discoloration of the titanium on the iPhone 15 Pro is temporary

When the most recent Apple keynote ended, the media attendees were able to try out and take photographs of the different devices presented. One of the captures that generated the most conversation, in a negative sense, showed that the titanium frame of the iPhone 15 Pro had become discolored after passing through so many hands. Nevertheless, This is a temporary effect, according to Apple.

Due to the concerns that some users have been expressing regarding the iPhone 15 Pro, which are the only ones with a titanium frame, Apple came out to calm the waters. Through the terminal’s support website, they clarify that The grease released by the fingerprints could alter the color of the metal. However, it is not a situation that will forever ruin the look Of the device.

If it already happened, the company recommends cleaning the frame with a damp cloth. After this process, your iPhone 15 Pro will return to normal.

“On the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, oil from the skin may temporarily alter the color of the outer frame. Cleaning your iPhone with a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth will restore its original appearance.”


Now, if the titanium frame comes into contact with substances such as “ink, makeup, soap, detergent, acids or lotions,” they urge cleaning immediately to avoid permanent damage.

Apple emphasizes that cleaning must be done without chemicals. While there are products specifically intended for cleaning equipment, these could wear down a special coating that the iPhone 15 Pro—and other models—have to protect their surfaces. So, always try to use just water.

Another tip is that, during the procedure, it is best to have your iPhone 15 Pro completely turned off and unplugged from the electrical current. All Apple recommendations, below:

  • Unplug all cables and turn off your iPhone.
  • Use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth (for example, a glasses cloth).
  • Prevent moisture from entering the openings.
  • Don’t use cleaning products unless you follow the instructions to disinfect your iPhone.
  • Do not use compressed air.

Of course, discoloration is more or less noticeable depending on the color. The iPhone 15 Pro in blue titanium and black titanium, being dark tones, are the ones that most expose temporary discoloration and fingerprints. In white and natural titanium they are less noticeable.

With this information, then, Concerns about the quality of the paint on the iPhone 15 Pro are dispelled. And these days an uproar arose over the photographs that we already mentioned. Some, of course, took advantage of the train to spread false information.

Of course, these recommendations will only be followed by those brave people who carry their iPhone without a case…
