How To Clean And Disinfect Your iPhone Properly

I wanted to show you how to clean and disinfect your iPhone since it's one of the dirtiest places since you're touching it all day it's in your pocket it's in contact with different surfaces and so I thought I'd show you how to properly clean it according to Apple.

Apple has just recently updated their information on what you can do to actually clean or disinfect your device so I want to show you how to do that now in the past I would only recommend something like this I clear this is something I've used for years to clean my phone before making a video or just clean it regularly and this has designed for phones and screens and things like that and most of the time.

I've said to avoid things like isopropyl alcohol on your display because it can damage the oleophobic coating but recently Apple has updated their website to say that you can use isopropyl alcohol that's just normal rubbing alcohol it may be called something else in different countries but it's normal normal rubbing alcohol you can use to disinfect things.

It will take care of about 99% of things as far as disinfecting or you can also now use Clorox wipes or Lysol wipes according to Apple now you can do that but there's a couple different ways you need to do that in order not to damage the display so the first thing you'll need to do is get a soft clean lint-free towel or cloth and then also make sure the device is unplugged now once it's unplugged you're good to go so what you want to do though is you want to avoid excessive wiping which means you don't want to scrub the display.

The reason you don't want to do that is again you want to try to avoid taking off the oleophobic coating or the coating that prevents your fingerprints from showing up from the oil on your fingers it means it's oil phobic or afraid of oil so it goes away so you want to just take say this 70% isopropyl alcohol or again a Lysol wipe or something like that squirt a little bit on there and then just wipe the phone down quickly you don't want to keep scrubbing the phone now if you have a screen protector on there you can be less concerned about that but you don't want to use anything abrasive just go around the phone real quick you can see there's liquid on there go around.

It real quick disinfect your phone and you should be good to go as far as that goes you want to do the same with a Lysol wipe or a Clorox wipe you don't want to leave anything on there and one thing you definitely do not want to use is any raised directly on the on the phone so you don't to spray the phone or anything like that or get it into any ports and you also don't want to use bleaches hydrogen peroxide or other abrasives that might scratch the phone so those things,

You definitely do not want to use on the phone according to Apple and again don't spray directly into the ports now if you do want to clean the ports such as the earphone or the bottom speakers and microphone you can do that with a q-tip or a couple other ways so if you have a q-tip here like this and you just want to put a little bit of the rubbing alcohol on it.

Then you just clean out the ports the best you can like this now if you have a bunch of dirt in there or dust and things that you can't get out you can use a couple different things to do that some people have suggested using sticky tack which is stuff you to hang things on the wall with that won't leave residue behind so you can just press that in here and I'll link some of this in the description as well but just press it in there that should take care of it and then if you want to clean out the Lightning port you can do that as well now if you go to an Apple store 99% of the time you'll see them clean.

It out with a SIM card removal tool I don't know that I would suggest that because there's metal pins in there and you have to be extremely careful so you don't want to force anything in there and in fact I would suggest maybe using a toothpick or something like that very gently but basically you just want to go in and across and that's it just lift out and you'll usually get a little bit of lint from inside the Lightning port but normally I would suggest using a toothpick or something along those lines to keep it clean and so that will clean everything off and then of course put it back in a case or if you're not using a case just clean it regularly.

So that will keep your phone nice and clean and disinfected people often ask me how do I keep my phone so clean before videos and things like that well it's generally because I'm wiping it down with a cleaner like I clear or another one there are some new cleaners on the market that will actually disinfect as well and I'm sure you'll probably see more and more of those going forward but I'll link some of those you don't have to use this one this one sort of leaves a film on there as well but it's not a disinfectant so if you want to make sure that it's nice and germ-free as much as possible of course you could just use a normal alcohol wipe as well if you have those have access to those or  a Clorox white would work.

Just as fine as well but that's it pretty simple and straightforward if you have any other questions though let me know in the comments below and let me know what you use to clean your phone as well you should be doing this regularly I would say do it daily as I do just to keep everything clean and then make sure of course you wash your hands after you do that and then everything will be nice and clean and you'll prevent spreading any sort of germs and things like that but let me know what you do to clean your phone in the description below and how often you do and of course if you'd like to get your hands on this wallpaper.
