Tips to Keep your iPhone 6S Plus Clean and Pristine December 12 2015

The Apple craze still hasn’t gone away. In fact, it has become even bigger and better with the company coming up with different gadgets and models every other year or so. It has only been weeks since the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus hit the store, yet Apple has already started working on the next model. So, if you’re thinking of buying iPhone 6s Plus or have just bought a new one, following are some incredibly helpful tips to keep your new phone looking clean and absolutely pristine.

Some Guidelines to Remember

Apple uses different materials to manufacture a device, which means each product has a specific cleaning requirement which can also vary by the part to be cleaned. Below are some universal tips that are applicable to every Apple product and can also be used for your iPhone 6s Plus as well.

  • Invest in a good quality iPhone 6s Plus case holster
  • When cleaning, use soft and lint-free cloths only
  • Keep liquid away from the device
  • Unplug all external power sources, devices, cables
  • Don’t use aerosol sprays, abrasives, or solvents on the device
  • Refrain from spraying cleaning solution directly on to the device
  • Make sure that any moisture doesn’t get into the openings

As you must know, liquid damage to Apple products isn’t covered under the warranty, which is why make a reservation at the Genius Bar first before visiting an Apple retail store.

Here’s How You Should Clean Your iPhone 6s Plus

Clean immediately if the phone comes into contact with messes or contaminants that can stain or scratch the phone’s leather case (ink, dyes, food, makeup, dirt, oils and lotions).

First turn off the phone and unplug it from its power source as well. Use your hand gently over the phone using a soft and slightly damp lint-fee cloth to rub over and clean its screen.

The oleophobic coating is fairly easy to clean, that is the coating found on the front glass surface and repels oils, but this ability is somewhat diminishes over time. Use a lint free cloth for cleaning the surface as an abrasive cloth can cause scratches to appear on the glass. The same can be done to the Home button, i.e. you won’t have to use any cleaning solvent to properly clean your iPhone 6s Plus and have it looking its best for a long time to come.
