How to clean your mobile device

  1. Turn off the device
  2. Remove any cover or case and unplug any accessories
  3. Dampen a soft, lint-free microfiber cloth with a small amount of disinfectant. You can also use alcohol-based wipes (containing more than 70% ethanol or isopropyl alcohol) with smartphones (Apple 2020, Samsung 2020).
  4. Gently wipe the exterior surface of the device

Caution

  • Do not apply disinfectant directly to the device
  • Avoid getting liquid in the ports
  • Clean the cover, case and accessories separately. See for example Apple’s advices on cleaning different materials (silicone, plastic or genuine leather).
