Keeping your iPad screen clean isn’t always easy, especially when you have a ton of tabs open at the same time. But if you keep a few tricks in mind, it won’t be as much of a headache anymore. After all, dirty screens don’t only make it difficult to read what’s on your screen – they also attract fingerprints and dust particles, which are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to ruined displays. That said, keeping your iPad screen clean doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to learn how to dust or scrub every inch of your device. You just need to know some effective ways that will help you maintain good visibility without having to worry about smudges or dirt getting trapped underneath your finger anytime soon.
Always use a screen protector
iOS devices are notoriously easy to damage, especially if you’re constantly using your iPad without a screen protector on it. That’s why it’s important to always keep your screen protected with a screen protector. Not only will it add one more layer of protection to your device, but it will also reduce the glare and keep your screen clean. If you really don’t have the spare cash to invest in a screen protector, you can always try using a plastic bag as a makeshift one. Simply cut a piece of a plastic bag that’s large enough to cover your device’s screen and tape it on. You can also invest in a screen protector kit, which comes with all the essentials you’ll need for a quick and easy installation.
Remove your Bluetooth headphones and speakers when not in use
Bluetooth headphones and speakers aren’t just a convenient way to stream music and make phone calls. They also add an extra level of dirt and grime to your device’s screen, especially when they’re consistently left plugged in. If you don’t have to use these devices often, then you can unplug them when you’re not using them. If you do need them for, for example, a workout, you can always invest in a pair of Bluetooth headphones that are sweat-proof and water-resistant. They’ll help you keep your device as clean as possible, and you won’t have to worry about accidentally leaving Bluetooth speakers and headphones plugged in.
Use a soft microfiber cloth for a dust-free wipe
If you’re constantly using a microfiber cloth for a dust-free wipe, then you’ll definitely notice a difference in how clean your iPad’s screen feels. That said, you want to make sure that you’re using a soft microfiber cloth for a dust-free wipe. You don’t want to scratch your screen while trying to keep it clean. You can also try using an anti-static brush to help you get rid of built-up fingerprints and dust particles. You can either place the brush on top of the screen and use the brush’s bristles to swipe away all the dust, or you can hold the screen with one hand and use the brush’s bristles to swipe away all the dust.
Turn the brightness down to protect your eyes
If you often have to strain your eyes to read small text on your iPad’s screen, you should definitely turn the brightness down. That way, you won’t have to strain your eyes as much to read on your device – and you can easily keep your screen clean at the same time. And if you’re planning to study or write on your iPad, you should keep in mind that small fonts are easier on the eyes. That’s because they allow your eyes to focus on the paper rather than a bright light, which can make you feel like you need to strain your eyes as much as possible.
Lock your iPad before you go to sleep
If you’re constantly using sticky notes or Post-it notes on your iPad’s screen, you should definitely try locking your device before you go to sleep. That way, sticky notes and Post-it notes won’t be able to leave your device’s screen and get stuck underneath your keyboard. That’s because sticky notes and Post-it notes are usually made of paper, which is porous. You’ll end up with sticky residue and dust particles if you don’t lock your device before going to sleep. You can also use a facial skin care product to help remove sticky residues and dust particles from your screen. After you’ve applied the product to your skin, simply swipe your hand across your iPad’s screen to collect the debris and transfer it to a separate container.
Finally, don't forget about your screen's vents and edges.
While you’re trying to keep your iPad screen clean, you should also pay attention to all the vents and edges of your device. That’s because dust and debris can easily get trapped under these areas, which can make it hard to see your screen clearly. Those areas include: - The battery vents - The openings on the sides of your iPad - The edges of your iPad’s screen If you want to make sure that your iPad screen stays as clean as possible, you should try installing an iPad screen protector. These screen protectors are designed to keep your screen as clean as possible while adding a layer of protection to your device’s screen. They’re also designed to reduce the glare, which can make it harder to see what’s on your screen.
