Telus recently shared a short video on how to clean your smartphone during this COVID-19 pandemic, with either just soap and water or rubbing alcohol, with a microfibre cloth.

“A clean phone is a safer phone. Washing your device regularly will prevent the spread of bacteria,” explains the Telus video.

Some iPhones are water-resistant and can survive being submerged in water. You could just wash your device with soap and water carefully:

iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus are splash, water, and dust resistant and were tested under controlled laboratory conditions.

iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have a rating of IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 4 meters up to 30 minutes). iPhone 11 has a rating of IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 2 meters up to 30 minutes). iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have a rating of IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 2 meters up to 30 minutes). iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus have a rating of IP67 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 1 meter up to 30 minutes). Splash, water, and dust resistance are not permanent conditions and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear. Liquid damage is not covered under warranty, but you might have rights under consumer law.

We all take our smartphones everywhere, including the bathroom. It’s definitely worth cleaning our phones nowadays, more so than before. Good ol’ soap is the best to fight coronavirus on your skin—this article is worth reading about the science of how it works.
