How to Prevent Scratches on an iPhone Screen

How to Prevent Scratches on an iPhone Screen

 Protect your iPhone. Those are some pretty good words to live by.

After all, most people use their iPhone more than any other item in their pocket (or pocketbook), bar none. We use them more than our house keys. More than our car keys. We even pull them out of our pockets more than a wallet or purse.

Let’s face it - when you use something over and over again, eventually it’s going to start showing signs of wear and tear. In the case of an iPhone it’s going to get scratched by keys, coins, pens, and other sharp objects… it may get dropped on the floor or a sidewalk. The screen may even crack.

That’s a lot of risk for such an expensive (and beloved) gadget.

So be smart. Protect your iPhone. Especially protect your iPhone screen. After all, you’re going to spend a lot of time looking at it.

How to Protect an iPhone Screen:

There are a couple of simple ways to protect your iphone and your iphone screen from scratches or even worse, cracking. Let’s examine a few of them.

Tip1: Watch Where You Put It

It almost goes without saying, but if you want to protect your iPhone screen, watch where you put it! Before you cram it in a pocket or a bag, make sure it’s not next to your keys, paper clips, or whatever other semi-sharp objects you carry with you.

Tip 2: Boost Your Grip

Almost everyone drops their cell phone on the floor every now and again. What’s worse, some of us have dropped our phone into the dreaded toilet! Even if you haven’t, you probably know someone who has!

The truth is, phones can be slippery. Apparently having such a sleek and sexy gadget comes with a price. There are a lot of iPhone accessories out there that boast the added benefit of boosting your grip. It may seem like a silly thing, but in reality, the better your grip, the slimmer the chance you’ll drop it. It’s a simple iPhone screen protection tip that will prevent the accumulation of scratches and cracks.

Tip 3: Get iPhone Screen Protection (or Full Body Protection)

Probably the best way to protect your phone screen is to get an iPhone screen protector. Some companies now sell ultra-thin clear protectors (or iPhone skins with cool designs) that prevent scratches on your screen.

You simply apply a thin and nearly invisible shield that can withstand the multitude of daily threats most iPhones face. In some cases, you can even find full body protection that can keep your entire gadget free of dings, scrapes, and scratches.

When you compare the cost of these shields to the cost of the gadget itself, these are a great solution.

    I have had my iPhone 4 for over two years. Not a single scratch on my screen with no "protection" ever used. I guess some people are just careless. Surely common sense to keep your iPhone in a pocket by itself where it cannot come into contact with keys or coins. As for phones being "slippery" that is just ludicrous. Anyone unable to hold a mobile phone firmly, should perhaps see their doctor or acknowledge that they have a mild disability.
    I assume the price of an iPhone is so high because of all the insurance claims for "accidental damage" from younger users.
    As for dropping your iPhone in the toilet bowl, why are you even holding your iPhone while you are either sitting on or standing over the toilet
