How to clean your iPhone


In light of the current world circumstances and the need to re educate everyone on how to wash their hands, it felt essential to address the items that rarely get cleaned which are in our hands for a large percentage of time - our phones.


For me, this is now my livelihood so is with me 100% of the time. Im handling food, liquids, materials, products, all that come with their own nasties at times and I know for sure that I could be making sure things are cleaned more thoroughly.


In the past, smartphone makers have advised consumers not to use disinfecting wipes or sprays on their devices to prevent damaging the coating on their touchscreen displays.


With the coronavirus escalating across the globe Apple have updated their guidelines (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207123)


The company now says you can use a wipe with 70% isopropyl alcohol or a Clorox wipe to clean your iPhones. Apple says to gently wipe your device and do not submerge in any disinfecting liquids/cleaner. Be mindful of any products getting into your phones ports which will likely cause further damage.


Whilst we are still understanding the coronavirus and how to prevent it, the World Health Organisation (https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses) states that the virus may last hours or even days outside of the body on surfaces so PLEASE consider cleaning your smartphone.
