Not sure if this is where it belongs, if not I apologize in advance. I'm looking for a gentle antibacterial spray for the iPhone 5. Almost every week I use my iKlear spray that I've had for years (I'm surprised it has lasted this long) but I don't think it is antibacterial.

I just use a micro fibre cloth.

Im not sure if using sprays could shorten the life of the oleophobic coating

Just use those Lysol antibacterial wipes then a microfiber cloth to polish after it dries.

That's what I did with my iPhone 4 and now with my 5

I have been using an antimicrobial spray for my glasses first then with that iklear stuff, but trying to see if I can find a product that does both.

It's not fraudulent if he is honest with Apple to get a replacement.
Well considering that he is putting that stuff on his phone purposefully and it isn't an accident it seems to me he would purposefully be ***** up his phone to get a new one. At the end of the day he paid for AppleCare+ so for $50 is owed a new phone for accidental damage, but seeing his damage isn't accidental filing an accidental damage claim would be fraudulent.

I just use a dab of rubbing alcohol on a paper towel. I only use a little bit and don't scrub it into the screen, so I doubt it does much harm. Some people say that it wears away the oleophobic coating of the screen, but I haven't noticed it on any of my iPhones or iPads.

Actually, I had AC+ on my iPhone 4S, it was a bit beat up, I told the genius that I was selling it, and I'd like to pay $50 to get a new phone. He said sure, not what it's meant for but there's no restriction on it officially. So $50 dollars later I increased my eBay value 10 days the iPhone 5 came out by $200. It wasn't dishonest, the C2M of an iPhone 4S is around $180, And I've paid $200 in warranties, plus the profit from my first phone, PLUS they got a whole inner-structure ($90 C2M) back from me, so in the end Apple still profited from me "Scamming" them :rolleyes::rolleyes:
