Apple Addresses iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max Frame Discoloration Issue

The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models use titanium with a brushed effect for their frames, a departure from the stainless steel used in previous iterations. This change seems to be the reason why fingerprints and skin oils may be more noticeable on the new models. It’s important to note that these signs of gradual wear and tear may not be a concern for all users.

In our iPhone 15 Pro Max review, we lauded the device’s “exquisite” build quality and described it as a “pleasure to hold.” While we didn’t particularly notice issues with fingerprints, the shift to titanium makes these models lighter than their predecessors and more resistant to corrosion, albeit slightly thicker as well.
