How to Clean Your iPhone and iPad

Do You Keep Your Device Clean?

With as much as you use your iPhone or iPad, they are going to get dirty. And, if either device comes in contact with things that can stain like dyes, oils, or foods, then cleaning it is a must.  Here are the steps to follow to clean your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Brand device cases.

Clean Your iPhone and iPad

Step 1: Turn off your device and remove any attached cables.

Step 2: Use a clean, soft, lint-free, non-abrasive cloth to wipe down your device. A lens cloth is ideal for this and you can use it on both the screen and Home button.

Step 3: For the iPhone 5c, clean the dirt around the SIM tray opening by using a very small amount of rubbing alcohol on the lint-free cloth. Be sure to avoid getting the alcohol or other moisture into the opening.

Do not use cleaning products, compressed air, or any abrasive product that may scratch your device.

Do not let moisture find its way into any of the device openings.
