If you own an iPhone, you would have witnessed those dramatic, spider-like cracks on your iPhone at some point, right? The next moment, you find yourself sitting glumly with your valuable asset in a repair centre.
We understand – this is one of the worst things that can happen to any iPhone user, considering that modern folks are all so phone-dependent. Plus, as you probably would know, a broken or cracked screen affects not only the aesthetics of your phone, but also its functionalities. Touch capacity will gradually be compromised, resulting in a dip in overall productivity.
By now, it’s clear that the screen is one of the most delicate parts of the iPhone and is exceptionally vulnerable to accidents and damages. But with awareness, one can easily steer clear of such situations. For this to happen, understanding what to look out for is imperative. Hence, we’re here to run you through some common causes of broken iPhone screens.
1. It Slipped From Your Grip
This is an all-too-common scenario, and certainly one of the major causes of cracked screens. Given its sensitivity, the chances that your iPhone screen will sustain some damages when it falls on a concrete floor are high. Luckily, for all the butterfingers out there, there are some ways to improve your device’s grip. For one, consider getting a phone ring holder that you can easily attach to the back of your phone. Slip your finger through the loop and just grip the phone as you usually would – now your phone is “attached” to you.
2. You Unconsciously Place Heavy Objects on Top of Your Phone
We all know that placing heavy objects on top of a device is never a good idea, but sometimes, we unconsciously do it. For instance, you’re performing some plumbing work and placed a hammer on your phone without knowing – the probability of the screen cracking is high.
The best way to prevent this from happening is to make conscious efforts or keep your phone away when handling heavy objects.
3. Your Defiant Child Tossed the Phone Around Like a Frisbee
If you have a little one at home who tosses around anything before him, you probably know how the story will pan out when he has his hand on your phone. After all, kids are known to be serial screen breakers. Thus, avoid giving your child access to your phone if you’re not close enough to monitor him.
4. Your Furry Pal Chewed it
Just to reiterate, screens are incredibly brittle. They can’t withstand the teeth of a dog, so the last thing you want is to have your furry friend gnawing your precious device like a bone. Keep your phone away from your pet if they have the tendency to go after it – you will thank yourself for this later.
5. Falling From Your Back Pocket
Unlike the front or side pockets, the back pocket isn’t a safe place to store your phone. Why? Unless the pocket comes with a button or a zipper, a quick bend can send your phone crashing to the ground or even into the toilet bowl. Always be conscious of where you place your phone – it’s better to be safe than sorry.
