A Reddit user has noticed a problem with the iPhone 15 Pro. The user, “mr_rakue,” shared photos of the device showing frayed edges just below the right corner of the back panel. Another Reddit user, “JDT33658,” also noticed a similar issue with his iPhone 15 Pro after only two days.
Apple has acknowledged the problem and stated that the adhesive used to keep the rear glass held down was not applied correctly during manufacturing. This has caused the material to stick out of the edge of the device, leading to peeling.
It is important for users who encounter this issue to resist the temptation to pick at the flaw or pull it. Additionally, they should be cautious about exposing the device to water until it can be brought to an Apple Store or an authorized repair center.
Some Reddit users have speculated that the affected devices may be fake or that the rear glass panels were installed incorrectly during a previous repair, but these claims have been denied by the owners.
Another Reddit user, “TheManchot,” advised against pulling at the adhesive and instead used a sharp, thin razor blade to carefully slice off the excess material.
Ultimately, it will be up to Apple to determine whether this is a manufacturing defect. Users who experience this problem are advised to visit an Apple Store or an authorized service center as soon as possible.
As of now, Apple has not issued an official statement regarding this issue.
