    Hello eveyone. I was just wondering I have been using my iPhone 6 caseless for a few weeks and I'm noticing there's debris Getting caught between the edges around where the screen meets the aluminum back plate. Is this normal. ? And how do you clean that. Thanks

    I never thought about that! Appreciate the tip. Is this normal for use without a case?

    I have been using a case so I wouldn't know about the 6. Used to use one for my iPhone 5 though (I had it naked) and worked perfectly

    I've noticed the same thing. Seems to be only in the upper right quadrant. Blowing it out usually works.

    I use the corner of a business card, or fold a sheet of A4 paper in two and use the corners of the folded part.

    I would say either the toothbrush or a toothpick. I sometimes used a course cloth, and that works too. You gotta hate all the crud that accumulates.

    When I worked in a restaurant, I would have to clean every other day from all the dirt and stuff that would get into the grooves of the phone.

    I purchase a small high quality pure bristle paint brush to remove dust and light crud from crevices in electronic items. For the more stubborn stuff, I use a soft or medium toothbrush.

    Thanks for all the tips everyone. I was just thinking I've had an iPhone 3G,4,5 and now the 6 and I know it's a conpletely different design but I feel like you shouldn't have to do this on such a high end beautiful device. Especially when most people recommend using it with no case. And I agree completely. I just feel like I should not have to up keep it in this way haha. Who knows. Maybe I'm crazy.

    If you do not "feel like you shouldn't have to do this on such a high end beautiful device", do not do it.:rolleyes:

    Just like even fancy and expensive luxury cars get dirt on them when they are used and need to be cleaned despite being very high end and beautiful.

    I always get grime around the buttons etc and that can't be helped, but the joint where the screen meets the casing shouldn't be a dirt gulley IMO.

    I completely agree. I almost always have something on the buttons, but It's gross when I take the case off.
