How to safely disinfect and clean iPhone?

Often do we touch our phone right after touching a public transport door, some regiment in the store or products in the cosmetics gallery. Have you ever wondered how many germs we can transfer to the phone case in such a way? We unconsciously transfer bacteria straight to the glass of our iPhone, and then by using it, we transfer it on our face, etc. In the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, when awareness increases, this normation becomes more and more obvious. Nevertheless, many of us are still is not fully aware of the seriousness of such a threat. Therefore, we all have to pay attention to clean smartphone from time to time. At the same time, we have to remember to carry out the process safely, to make sure that we avoid the possibility of damage to any part of the beloved gadget.

Cleaning iPhone

Why shall I be careful?

Manufacturers, such as APPLE, do not recommend the usage of harsh disinfectants due to the oleophobic coating on the cover of your device. Most probably, you have never heard about oleophobic stuff, so in a huge shortage, it’s an oil-repellent coating that helps prevent fingerprints and streaks from sticking to the smartphone screen, for example, it keeps the grease at bay, not allowing it to adhere to the devices’ glass. That’s why it is worth being soft with cleaning your phone.

How to clean iPhone safely?

The best product to be used in cleaning your phone is a nonabrasive or alcohol-based (70% isopropyl) disinfectant. All you have to do, once you have such liquid, is to spray it on a soft cloth and wipe the device once it is NOT plugged to any power supply. More and more often do we find microfiber cloth, which is a ready product that just needs to be removed from the packaging and used to wipe the screen. Such soaked cloth is the fastest solution. And that is all. Polish your iPhone so that there are no streaks. Do not skip any bends and edges. Once you do it properly, the problem disappears. All germs have been removed!

OK, cleaners. Let's clean iPhone.

As you can see, removing dirt and bacteria from the APPLE iPhone’s screen is not difficult or complicated. All you need is a suitable detergent and cloth or a moistened antiseptic cloth. Just remember not to overdo it with frequency. You don't have to wipe the phone every 5 minutes.
