The desire for change, according to the newspaper, came after users were frustrated with the titanium color of the iPhone 15 changing when it came into contact with skin oils and fingerprints.

Through the interaction of the titanium surface with air, very thin layers of oxides are produced, which scatter light and give the metal a colored finish.

According to Professor Walter Navarini of the Polytechnic University of Milan, one of the main drawbacks to the use of titanium is “the color change caused by the greasy effects of oily substances on the surface.”

Apple has not yet confirmed the release date of the iPhone 16, amid a state of anticipation by users for the modifications that the company may introduce to the new generation.

The iPhone 15 shared a set of features with the previous generation, but it evolved from it in terms of the charging port, the camera’s ability to zoom, in addition to the photo-taking features and the action button.
