Apple’s latest iPhones were flagged for a slew of design and technical problems within hours of their release on Friday. Social media posts shared by tech enthusiasts claimed that the new device performed poorly on durability tests, had uneven colouring and other ‘defects’. Despite the complaints, demand for the latest Apple offerings remained strong on Friday with hundreds queueing up at stores across the world.
“It appears that some units of the iPhone 15 Pro are defective. The coloring was not applied evenly, furthermore the screen seems not to be perfectly aligned with the edges,” read a post shared by Twitter user Majin Bu.
While some reports dubbed the new phone a ‘fingerprint magnet’ others cited an Apple support article to dismiss the colour change.
“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,” the company had said.
Apple newest iPhones and watches went on sale in about 40 countries today – a test of whether a new smartphone design and modest smartwatch changes can help return the company to growth.
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models will represent Apple’s biggest sellers throughout the rest of the year — and the ability to both create and fulfill demand for the products will make or break its holiday period.
