Taking Care of Your iPhone 4s

Because today’s world requires a fast pacing, more and more people are starting to find themselves relying heavily on their mobile devices. One mobile device model that has definitely been heating up the market is the iPhone. With its touch screen technology and the option for personalization, iPhone has definitely become one of the top choices for today’s urban professionals.

The very first iPhone design was introduced in June of 2007. This came in the heel of Apple’s discontinuation of its support for the ROKR line of mobile phones by Motorola. The first iPhone made use of the 2G networks and would basically seem like a combination of a phone and an iPod. Six years after, the iPhone has maintained its position as the market leader when it comes to mobile phones that make use of touch screen. To date, iPhone comes in 5 more models including iPhone 4s and iPhone 5.

Now, just like with any mobile devices, you also have to make sure that you take care of your iPhone. Regardless whether what you have is an iPhone 4s or an older model, you have to manage properly the charging of your mobile phone. iPhone batteries tend to get drained easily. The best way to handle this would be to fully drain the phone and then charge it using the right iPhone charging cable.

Aside from having the right kind of iPhone charging cable, it also pays to ensure that you do not overcharge your iPhone nor should you store it in a place where there is direct sunlight. Temperature is everything in this Apple mobile phone. Once the unit heats up, the motherboard could easily suffer from a short circuit. This is aside from the possibility that the screen could crack.

If possible, invest in some dependable hard casing for your iPhone as well as a screen protector. The hard casing would come in handy during those times you accidentally dropped your phone, while the screen protector would help ensure that your screen remains scratch-free.

In most cases, iPhone users do not take the time to clean out the speakers and the mic of their unit. This is understandable since users do not easily notice both. Unfortunately, because of their placement and their size, dirt and dust usually collect on them, which tends to have a negative effect on the volume of the incoming as well as outgoing calls. A clean cotton bud can help in cleaning these areas. Make sure that you do not use any liquid when cleaning the speakers and the microphone as this could short circuit the motherboard.

Lastly, if you have the budget for it, try and get the AppleCare+ coverage for your mobile phone. This would help you lessen your expenses associated with hardware repair. Of course, you have to keep in mind that this is only offered to damages that happened through no fault of your own. This means that damages from accidentally dropping your phone would most likely not be covered.
