Disinfecting Your iPhone
A simple solution of isopropyl alcohol is an effective way to eliminate illness-causing particulates from your iPhone. Apple says that it is safe to use either 70 percent isopropyl alcohol or Clorox cleaning wipes on your devices.
1. With a cleaning spray or 70 percent isopropyl alcohol, moisten a microfiber cloth until it's just damp.
2. Wipe down the iPhone, front and back, with the microfiber cloth.
3. Dip a Q-Tip or cotton swab and go over the iPhone's edges to make sure to disinfect crevices.
4. Alternatively, take a Clorox wipe that is not too moist and thoroughly wipe the IPhone's front, back, and sides. Learn More
The Wall Street Journal's Joanna Stern tested Apple's new guidelines over the course of the last week. Using a new iPhone 8, she wiped the display 1,095 times with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, the estimated equivalent of the number of times an iPhone might be cleaned over the course of three years. After all the wiping, the oleophobic coating on the iPhone's display was in good condition with no perceived damage.
