If you've always preferred shiny gadgets, the Jet Black iPhone 7 is totally up your alley. A word of warning, though: you might have to take extra good care of it to keep it scratch-free and pristine. In the new iPhone 7 page on the company's website, part of the fine print at the very bottom says:

"The high-gloss finish of the jet black iPhone 7 is achieved through a precision nine-step anodization and polishing process. Its surface is equally as hard as other anodized 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."
