How to Apply Protective Screen Cover to iPhone?
Protective screen covers are meant to protect your iPhones from scratches and dust. They will make the glass screen of your iPhone as new even after many months of usage, and if it gets scratched, at least the actual screen is left unharmed and that you could always buy another protective film instead of a new iPhone.
I have heard many people were having problem with applying the protective film to their iPhones so here’s a step and step guide on how to do this quickly and effectively. The end result should make the protective film appear invisible.
1. Wash your hands
This is a necessary procedure to clear your hands from any dirt, grease, and lint. It any of these is present on your hands, they will be transferred onto the protective screen cover and will get stuck onto your iPhone screen. It will most likely cause bubbles which can be very ugly. You may opt to put some of the cleaning solutions on your fingertips to prevent any lint to the film.
2. Clean the screen area
Aside from the hands, your work area should also be free from dirt, grains, or dust or else it will also stick to the protective film making it unsightly once it has been place. It can even cause unnecessary scratches. Have cleaning solutions and a clean cloth.
3. Prepare your tools and materials
Make sure you have enough light and have all your materials at hand so you will not be leaving your work unattended such as a cardboard, and a clean cloth. Clean your phone and the screen. It should be clear from dirt and fingerprints.
4. Spray some of the cleaning solution onto the screen
This will help you easily align the screen and for you to be able to remove the bubbles easily.
5. Remove the mask
Be careful not to touch anything other than the surface with the mask. Do not touch the iPhone screen protector.
6. Position it on top of the iPhone screen
Make sure it is within the bevel edges. Do not rush to avoid lifting up the protective film in case you made a mistake.
7. Smooth out the bubbles
When you have properly positioned the film, smooth the bubbles by using the cardboard. You may use a plastic card if you want. Wipe out excess cleaning solutions gently.
8. Wash your hands
Make sure your hands are dry enough before touching your iPhone.
