2. Use a Screen Protector First, Followed by Disinfectant Wipes

Using a protective case can prevent any cleaning wipes from harming the iPhone's screen covering, either you want to do this temporarily with coronavirus (or also during cold/flu season) or as a long-term solution. Keeping the iPhone's display protected, you may disinfect it with tiny device wipes, Clorox or Lysol wipes, or a small amount of 60-70 percent isopropyl alcohol.
(Note: do not put it straight on your screen, dab it on a microfiber towel, then clean off your smartphone).

Whenever it comes to sanitizing your iPhone using UV light, PhoneSoap is by far the most popular choice in the market. Of course, this is the most expensive choice, but it gives you and your family/friends/coworkers a convenient way to clean any size iPhone or Android smartphone.
PhoneSoap kills 99.9% of germs and viruses using two UV-C bulbs, and the results have been clinically validated. While cleaning your smartphone, this portable sanitiser also charges it.

Do's While Cleaning Your iPhone

1. Use a Screen Protector

First and foremost, it is often a smart option to apply a thin, transparent screen protector directly to the surface of your phone's screen to protect it from dust, grime, scratches, and any cleaning chemicals that you will use on your phone. Generally, you should do this right after pulling your smartphone out of the box, but if that time has passed, you may still do so after thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing your phone's screen. Just make sure to select a protective case that is specially designed for your phone.

2. Use an Antibacterial Cloth for Cleaning

Whenever it comes to cleaning your smartphone, an antibacterial cloth is definitely your best friend. This will meet most of your cleaning requirements. With an antibacterial cloth, you can clean your smartphone.

3. Use Disinfectant Wipes

On the help website, Apple expressly replies whether consumers should apply a disinfectant on their Apple iPhone. "You may gently wipe the hard, nonporous surfaces of your Apple device, such as the display, keyboard, or other external surfaces, using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe, 75 percent ethyl alcohol wipe, or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes." "Do not use items containing bleach or hydrogen peroxide," Apple advises.

There is a good reason behind using UV Smartphone cleaner. Apart from its price, it is very effective at cleaning your smartphone, which many prefer. So, it is better if you too can. If you can’t, it’s not at all a big problem.

Don’ts While Cleaning Your iPhone

1. Don’t Use Any Wipes Which Are Made of Paper

Paper towels, facial tissues, and other paper-based wipes should not be used on your phone since they may scratch the screen. Instead of these wipes, make use of disinfectant wipes.

2. Avoid Using Any Liquids on Your Mobile Screen

For the most part, avoid using liquids as they may harm your mobile phones. However, if it is necessary, use it in fewer quantities. But, again, avoiding the use of liquids is the best thing to do.

3. No Home Cleansers or Spray Disinfectants Should Be Used

Household cleaning chemicals like Windex, 409, and Clorox can strip your phone's screen's protector oleophobic layer, not to mention damage the metal elements of your phone. Avoid using home cleaners or sprays or disinfectant sprays. Instead, use disinfectant wipes as a replacement.

What Happens if You Don’t Clean Your Mobile Phone?

If you don’t keep your phone clean and sanitized, you may be exposed to the flu or some viruses. Well, there is no guarantee that you’ll be exposed to the flu, but there is more probability of getting attacked by germs and viruses as we carry our mobile phones to many places and have our hands on them all day.
Always remember, "Prevention is better than cure". For example, if you neglect cleaning your mobile phone, you may get attacked by the covid-19. So, what I’m saying is, why take chances? Health is the greatest wealth that you can give yourself.
