How to Avoid Dropping Your iPhone
There are many things you can do with your iPhone such as making calls, texting, sending messages, browsing the web, and more, but your phone is only going to work the way you want it to if you can avoid damaging it. Dropping phones are one of the most common ways they are damaged and a simple drop can result in a broken screen, software glitches, or even total failure. The best way to protect your iPhone from being damaged by drops is to treat it like the valuable investment it is.
Handle Your Phone with Care
Your iPhone is an expensive piece of technology and it should be treated with care. When you are not using your cell phone, place it in your pocket or purse. If your phone is not in its standard storage space, make a mental note of where you put it. Many iPhones sustain damage when people are moving from sitting to standing positions because they have forgotten that they placed their phones on their laps. Trying to know where your phone is and handling it with care will dramatically reduce the odds of accidentally dropping or knocking it off the table or countertop.
Invest in a Protective Case
There are three things you need to consider when you are selecting a protective case for your iPhone including the model of the phone, your budget and what you need the case to do. Each model of the iPhone is going to require a different case; for example, the iPhone 5 is not going to fit into an iPhone 6 case. The case you get for your phone is going to vary in price based on the material the case is made from. Your cheapest option is going to be a basic plastic case, which offers little in the way of protection. Rubber cases are a little pricier but they also offer better shock absorption and create more friction which can prevent slips, although if you frequently drop your phone it might not hold up. Finally, the most expensive case option is going to be a bulkier plastic case that is intended for people who often have their phones in rugged environments or drop their phones on a regular basis. Remember to choose your case based on what your needs are and not for the aesthetic look of your phone. Needing to use a case that isn’t the prettiest is preferable to having to replace your phone every couple months because you dropped it.
Protect Your Screen
A final consideration that needs to be made is how you are going to protect your screen. While a simple screen protector won’t be enough to prevent the screen from shattering in a long fall, it will offer some scratch resistance. However, since the touchscreen is one of the most important components of your iPhone, it is important to do everything you can to protect it from getting scratched-up and dinged whenever possible. Screen protectors are available in a range of finishes from matte to glossy, which means you are going to be able to select the one that best suits your tastes.
