It’s always a good idea to keep your Apple® devices clean, but it’s never been more important than in 2020. Unfortunately, an iPhone® can accumulate a lot of bacteria. Luckily, with a little advice and TLC, your phone will soon be the exception to the rule.
How to Thoroughly Clean Your Apple Device
You should regularly clean your iPhone to kill bacteria. One of the best ways to do this is to use a disinfecting cloth, such as a Clorox® wipe. These contain isopropyl alcohol, one of the best agents for eliminating dirt, bacteria, and viruses. You can also use a soft, microfiber cloth soaked in 70% isopropyl alcohol. Just make sure it’s not too wet. Before you use these items, unplug all cables and turn your phone completely off.
You might also want to use an ultraviolet-light sanitizer that’s specifically made for the iPhone. These devices use UV rays to completely sanitize your phone. They also serve as chargers and don’t use any liquid or chemicals.
What Not to Do
Since Apple devices are electronics, they’re fairly fragile and easy to damage. Therefore, caution is needed when sanitizing your phone. For example, even if your phone is supposedly waterproof, don’t submerge it in water or put it under the tap. Newer iPhone models are water-resistant in case of emergencies but shouldn’t be exposed to liquid if there are other options.
There are also certain substances that can damage your screen’s coating, which is made to repel oil and water. For instance, vinegar can damage your phone, even in small quantities. Avoid window cleaners and kitchen cleaners as well.
Never wipe your phone down with a paper towel, as it can cause scratches. Lastly, don’t use compressed air. An Apple product isn’t designed to endure this much air pressure, and you could damage the ports.
