However, this also means that they will experience a lot of wear and tear that reduces their lifespan. So, keeping your phone clean is an important part of prolonging its life. Cleaning your iPhone regularly is essential to keeping it functioning properly. A clean iPhone not only looks good, but it also helps prevent the build-up of dirt that can harm its performance. Here are 5 helpful tips for cleaning your iPhone. ## **Turn iPhone off when cleaning** Before cleaning your iPhone, it’s best to turn it off to prevent any damage or short circuit caused by water or detergent. To turn off your iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button, then swipe the “slide to power off” button. ## **Using a microfiber cloth** Using a microfiber cloth is the best way to clean the screen and body of your iPhone. As such a cloth will be gentle and will not scratch or damage the coating of the screen. Simply wipe the screen and body with a cloth to remove fingerprints, smudges, and dust. You can also use a soft-bristled brush to clean the ports and speakers. ## **Avoid using harsh chemicals** Avoid using harsh chemicals, such as bleach or ammonia, to clean your iPhone. These chemicals can damage the device’s coating, screen, and internal components. Instead, use a small amount of water or a mild detergent specifically designed for electronic devices. ## **Use a toothbrush for hard-to-reach areas** A soft-bristled toothbrush can be used to clean hard-to-reach areas, such as the edges around the camera lens or ports. Gently brush the area with a toothbrush to remove dirt or debris. ## **Clean your iPhone case** If you use a case for your iPhone, cleaning it regularly is also essential.
