Every since I got this phone I have been obsessed with keeping the screen clean, now every 5 minutes I have to wipe the screen to get off all the finger prints, even if I'm still using the phone afterwards. I swear to god I'm starting to go mental here :sick:

I have the crystal screen protector on they sell at Apple and yes it does show less fingerprints than without, but they still show up and cause me to clean the screen.
And this isn't helping since I already have OCD when it comes to other things, great heres another one :(

That would be correct, they just show up as smudges and not clearly defined finger prints, lol.
And when you buy one go to the Apple store and ask to use their "Apple Polish" before you put the cover on, that stuff gets the screen so clean its insane.

LOL...Glad to know that I'm not alone! I hate the fingerprints as well. I clean my screen once or twice a day depending on how busy I am.

They just let me use it at both Apple stores I've gone to. They have a huge bottle of it behind the counter with a blue cloth. Just ask if they have some you can use and they'll just hand it to you!

The stuff at the store is "iKlear".

The big blue cloth comes with the kit (as well as a small blue cloth, a bottle of mild cleaner, some cleaning packets, etc).

What's in the bottle at the store may or may not be iKlear solution though, I was told when I use up the solution, just fill it with water.

The key is keeping the cloth clean... once you get the cloth filled with oils, then water + the cloth won't work as well.


I've got microfiber clothes all over the place nowadays, and microfiber bags for anything that needs cleaning (glasses, sunglasses, iPhone). I recommend starting a collection of strategically placed clothes as the best way to keep the iPhone clean.

I just round them up when I do laundry, and toss them in with the clothes so they don't get too dirty over time.

the cool thing is though if you aren't like paying attnetion to the fingerprints, the screen is so bright they are impossible to see, like the only time u see them is if the phone is sleeping or if you are really looking for them
