4 Essential Tips for Taking Care of Your iPhone

  An iPhone smartphone is nothing like a regular smartphone. It's more powerful and complicated than your first few personal computers. That's why it is important that you know how to take good care of your iPhone smartphone. In this article, I will reveal few essential tips on taking care of your iPhone smartphone.

First off, always make sure that both the speaker and microphone are clean.

  You can find the speaker on the left side of your iPhone and the microphone on the right side. Make sure you keep these two areas clean. Otherwise you might find yourself in a situation where you can't hear what the person you are calling to is saying and he/she can't hear you.

Second off, make sure to keep your iPhone smartphone at the right temperature.

  Apple's iPhone is relatively sensitive to temperature. Especially the battery. To keep your iPhone safe, you should always try to keep it unexposed to temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit and below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Third off, do not be afraid to reset your iPhone from time to time.

  Resetting an iPhone can solve various problems. Next time before taking your iPhone to the repair shop, try to reset it first. Resetting an iPhone is rather easy and totally risk free. By resetting your iPhone, you do not lose any apps or other data input. Learn how to reset your iPhone.

Fourth off, always fully charge the battery of your iPhone.

  Well, "always" might have not been the best word. Sometimes you simply do not have the time to fully charge your phone. However, I do recommend fully charging your iPhone as often as possible. By doing that, you'll guarantee the battery a long life. Also, as often as possible, you should allow the battery to go completely dead before plugin in the charger.

  I want to make it clear that it is just a rumor, but if it is true, it would be a huge breakthrough in Microsoft policy.
