Hey all,

I've had my X for roughly 4 months and I'm loving it so far, although I probably aint using it to its full potential!

Anyway, what's the best way to clean the device? I've currently been using a damp microfiber and I normally clean it once a week to minimise risk of scratches in case I come to sell the phone later. Is this the correct way?

Cheers

I wipe my iPhone 7 Plus off on my clothes to remove fat from the screen and from time to time I use a damp cloth to clean the rest.
I remove lint and dirt from the lightning port with wooden toothpicks.
I even had to rinse my whole device under running water because I dropped it in soup.

This is exactly the way that Apple suggests cleaning the iPhone. See https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207123

I have some extremely dilute soap solution that was supplied to install one of those wet-apply screen protectors. When I need to clean my phone, I will usually squirt a bit on a microfiber cloth and use that to clean, with a dry cloth afterward to remove any moisture (there rarely is any - I don't squirt all that much.)

But - no matter which advice you get from me or others, I'd suggest to clean the way that Apple suggests.

By the way, the Apple Store in my city apparently cleans the lightning port for free if you ask them to. You only need an appointment.

But that’s not really clean
