iPhones are fast and powerful with a great design. When you buy a new Apple device, you want to make sure that you don’t break it or damage it. Though they are built to be long-lasting, an accidental drop or exposure to liquid can occur. In order to avoid some serious problems, we have listed the best ways to keep your iPhone from damages.
1. To protect your iPhone from damages, use a screen protector
Screen protectors have already saved many iPhones.
We all know that accidents can happen so even if you’re extremely careful, you may drop your iPhone unintentionally. Nobody wants to hear the shattering sound of a breaking screen. As a result, one should do everything to prevent such an accident and further screen replacement
Without a screen, your iPhone cannot be operated. So it’s not something you can save on. iPhone screen repairs may be costly. For that reason, you probably want to invest in a good quality screen protector.
Though iPhones are solid and can last for a very long time, we all want thin phones. As a result, the glass used in an iPhone will be fragile and delicate. You may want to compare it to an eggshell. If it’s handled with care, nothing will happen, and your phone will be in perfect condition for many years to come. But the moment it’s not handled properly, it can crack easily.
You can use a plastic film protector – it will only protect your iPhone from scratches. iPhones owners may also buy a tempered glass screen protector which is more resistant, but the display is identical to the original one.
You may find a range of high-quality screen protectors in this iPhone accessories webshop.

2. Buy a quality iPhone case
Another effective way to keep your iPhone from damages is to buy a quality iPhone case.
There are many protective iPhone cases so probably you can find a good one for any type of iPhone. Quality phone cases protect the body of your Apple device, not only the screen.
iPhone cases come in all colours and materials, so you can experiment with the appearance of your Apple device. Some of them are relatively heavy, while other ones are quite light. You may buy waterproof or dustproof iPhone cases if your job or daily activities require such protection.

3. Maximise your iPhone’s battery life by charging it properly
In order to maximise your battery life, make sure that you have updated your iPhone and now use the latest software. Apple updates often contain some energy-saving changes, so check that you have the latest version.
You should also avoid charging your iPhone to 100% because it will eventually shorten your battery’s lifespan. It’s best to keep the power level between 45-75%.
4. Always hold your iOS device with a firm grip
This might seem to be obvious, many accidents occur because the iPhone owner doesn’t have a firm grip of his or her device. The way you hold your iPhone or even iPad can prevent your iOS device from falling out of your hands. Always keep it safely, with a firm grip. As a result, you can protect the body of your gadget and avoid serious damages to the screen.
5. Avoid extreme temperatures
If you want to keep your iPhone from damages, don’t leave your iOS device in too cold or too hot weather for a prolonged period of time.
Just like any electronic device, Apple gadgets don’t like extreme temperatures. Heat or too cold weather can easily damage them. Exposure to these temperatures can harm the battery and other internal parts as well and it may end up in shorter battery lifespan or loss of data.
Your iPhone may get so damaged that a ‘simple repair’ can’t help it so you would need to buy a new device.
It’s very easy to prevent damages caused by extreme temperatures. During the summer times, don’t leave your iPhone exposed to the sun for a long time. During the wintertime, keep your iPhone in your pocket to keep it relatively warm. If you have left your iPhone exposed to the scorching sun or in the cold, take them inside and let them stay at room temperature for a while. Don’t try to warm them up or cool them down too rapidly. Such quick temperature change can lead to precipitation in your iOS device leading to water damage.
6. Never leave your iPhone unattended
More often than not, people leave their iPhones unattended, and it can easily be attained by young children or pets.
Though more and more parents decide to allow their children to play with their Apple devices, make sure that your kid is old enough to handle your iPhone with care. Otherwise, it can easily break.
If you’re not careful enough, you may even lose your iPhone. Thankfully, you can track and find it relatively easily. In this article, you can read about how to track a lost iPhone.
Also, you should avoid keeping your phone close to your keys or other sharp objects. If it’s in your pocket, keep it separated from other items so you can avoid damages to your iPhone screen.
