The matte black is similar to the already available space grey while the glossier jet black option is new and beautiful but more susceptible to scratches.
Apple has made the following statement on this particular option “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.”
The glossy finish of the phone is achieved by precision nine-step anodization and polishing process and this high shine is the main cause that scratches might show with time.
Other than this little difference the Jet Black option is as durable as any other options and it should be appreciated that Apple has forewarned its customers that this issue might arise so that they can take easy precautions beforehand.
So bear this in mind if you are going for the Jet Black color option for the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
Not to forget the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus is already sold out.
