Apple will NOT replace your phone or battery case for this. The Jet Black finish scratches fairly easily and they list a warning on the product specs page. The case itself is not the problem. It's likely debris that got in between the case and the phone or dirt that was on the phone or the cleaning cloth you used to wipe it down. Take it off periodically and carefully clean it with a clean microfiber cloth. Try not to stress about the scratches. The Jet Black phones are going to get them to some degree regardless of how careful you are.

they recommend to get a case to prevent this why do they lie if it will get scratched both ways and I did not scratch my phone.

It's not scratch proof and they are very upfront about this. It's significantly less likely to get scratches with a case. It typically only happens if dirt makes its way inside and it's infrequently cleaned. Your scratch was more likely related to cleaning. You probably had an abrasive particle on the cloth. If not, you got something inside of the case. The case itself will not scratch it.

Have you considered selling it and buying a matte black? It's a lot easier to keep pristine.

Or there was debris in the case, like @Europa mentioned and when that person sat on the phone it just ground it in causing the scratch.

Stuff happens.... You have a car/vehicle? You realize that EVERY time you wash it, you get scratches in the clear coat and sometimes in the paint itself?

It was there for how long? And you're just now posting about it??
Sorry, but I'm calling utter BS on this. If it was a manufacturing defect, it would've been there the day you purchased the device. Which we know can't be the case because you would've posted 19 times about it already.

No. Apple will not replace it for a scratch. Doesn't matter how nicely you ask.

You’re going to e-mail what, exactly? What Senior Moderator Europa said to you?

Thank you for posting that—I needed a good laugh this morning. :D
