Many people love to clean iPhone screen with Alcohol or other household cleaners since it can clean the prints and dirt easily, dries fast, and sterilizes the device as well. But the truth is that’s very dangerous.  There’s a piece of news reported by providing us a live example that someone damaged his screen while cleaning with alcohol.

From the picture he shared, it’s easy to find out that the solvents went into the iPhone 5S screen and seems to have the inner screen dyed with ink.  Actually, there is a very thin coating inside of iPhone to protect the inner screen. But it dissolves in many types of liquid solvents easily. So it’s highly recommended you not to clean iPhone and other iOS device with those solvents.  And according to Apple, the best way to clean iPhone is to wipe it gently with soft, lint-free cloth. And if there is something hard to clean, you can put some drops of water onto the cloth, squeeze it out, and use the dampened cloth to remove the stuck-on substance. Besides, the outside screen of iPhone is also covered with oleophobic coating which makes figure prints easily removing. Liquid solvents may damage the coating as well. So if you don’t want the outside screen being damaged, you’d better take a soft, lint-free cloth with you and clean the iPhone screen as soon as there’s stain on it.


How to clean iPhone?

1. Unplug iPhone from any external power sources or cable accessories, and turn it off (hold the button on the top and wipe the screen to power off.)

2. Use soft, dry, lint-free cloth and wipe the screen gently.

3. If there’s some stains hard to wipe off, you can put some drop of water onto the cloth, squeeze it out, and use the dampened cloth to clean.  Don’t use household cleaners or sprays to clean the iPhone, such as alcohol, window cleaner, etc.  And don’t get moisture into any openings.

4. Take the soft, lint-free cloth with you and clean the iPhone as soon as it got stains.

What should you do if liquid already made its way into your iPhone?

You’d better seek assistant immediately from an authorized service provider or Apple Retail Store. And please note that liquid damage is not covered under the Apple product warranty or AppleCare Protection Plans.

Morgan Stanley is predicting in an investor note that around 10% of those who own an iPhone 5 or later will buy an Apple Watch, generating first year sales of around 30M – right at the top end of the 10-30M range suggested by other analysts.

While predicting likely sales of a new product category is always a rather shaky undertaking, and sales of competitor smartwatches may not prove a reliable guide, Morgan Stanley thinks there is one clue to how well the Apple Watch might sell: the precedent set by the iPad …  expand full story

The iPhone 5c is often criticised in light of its beefy powerful cousins, acting as a bit of a laughing stock for the technology industry. However, it is often reported as one of the top phones by sales volume in many countries (usually beating out Samsung’s offerings).

In fact, for August the iPhone 5c was the best selling smartphone in the UK, even outselling the iPhone 5s, according to Kantar World Panel.

The iPhone 5c was the best selling phone in Britain in August with 8.9% share, outselling the flagship iPhone 5s with 7.6% and the Samsung Galaxy S5 with 6.0%.

Normally, Apple phone sales drop in the runup to the next-generation devices, as customers hold off on iPhone purchases until the new versions are announced. However, Kantar says that the success of the iPhone 5c meant that Apple’s decline was much lower than in previous years.

Remember Apple’s iPhone 5 ad called ‘Thumb’ that boasted the device’s larger screen design while still maintaining one-handed use? They probably don’t want you to anymore. The new iPhone ads almost mock the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus display, though, especially the ‘Huge’ ad. New direction.

But back to that iPhone 5 ad.

The parody video above applies the same idea as the one-hand focused iPhone 5 ad to the massive new iPhone 6 Plus. (Frankly, the parody goes a little easy on the concept, though, as even with Reachability, one-hand use is a streeeeetcccchh.)

It’s iPhone season once again and most of us are faced with a tough decision. Should you upgrade or wait around another year for a better device? That may be a tough decision, but it’s always easier to see the pros and cons of both sides with a good old-fashioned comparison.

We’re taking a look at Apple’s new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and last year’s iPhone 5s and going over the details and specifications for each device. Knowing the facts is half of the battle, but hopefully this will help you see the benefits from each side…

Apple seems to be simplifying its range of accessories for its older iPhones ahead of the iPhone 6 launch on Friday. As shown above, Apple has removed every color of iPhone 5s case apart from black from its website. Although it is strange for Apple to reduce its potential for accessory sales (given that it still sells the iPhone 5s for only $99 on contract and many 5/5s models are out in the world), it is seemingly focusing on its new range of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus leather and silicone cases instead. expand full story

Today we saw two new iPhone models – 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays for the first time – but what about Apple’s plans for the 4-inch iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c and 3.5-inch iPhone 4s?

While there was no new 4-inch model in the 2014 iPhone lineup, Apple has lowered the price of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models to $99 and $0 on contact, respectively.

The iPhone 4s, however, has been dropped from the new iPhone lineup altogether with the iPhone 5c taking its former price point. expand full story

This Friday afternoon, Apple has opened up an iPhone 5 battery replacement program after discovering that a “very small percentage” of units “may suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently.” The iPhone 5 was originally launched in September 2012, and Apple says that the affected units were sold between that month and January 2013. Apple’s support website includes a tool to check if your serial number belongs to a faulty iPhone 5…
