The iPhone 6 came with very cool gold, rose gold, and silver finish.
As soon as users opened their boxes they noticed new changes with the latest model.
But some people were left puzzled when they turned their phone over.
Unlike previous models, this one came with one line at the top and one at the bottom of the phone. Knowing that Apple does not do anything without thinking it through, mobile users wanted to know what these lines were for.
Notice all the iPhone 6 come with the lines.
These models were made lighter and thinner in comparison to the older generations. The back panels are made of aluminum, except for the lines which appear to be made of plastic.

It is speculated that the iPhone 7 will not have the bands. Do the two lines on the phone bother you?
