    Does anyone have a solid solution for cleaning the dust/debris in the speakers on the iPhone 6s Plus?

    There's so much, and blowing will damage it, trying to brush it risks pushing more in.

    Or do you just live with it? I've had mine for about 6 months now...

    I've read suction will damage internals

    You read many things on the internet. Use common sense and don't blindly trust them.

    I think you can go for a wooden/bamboo toothpick for help.

    I wouldn't take a chance on using a vacuum cleaner.

    I vote no on the vac too. It could suck debris in the other side of the phone.

    To solve a problem, you must go to the root source. You have too much lint in your pockets and/or other clothes in the dryer.
    Make sure all your clothes pockets area clean of debris before washing and drying. Unless I'm the anomaly, as I've never had any lint in any of my phones' holes.

    Having immaculate pocket interior is harder to achieve than it sounds

    I'll give you an actual answer since it seems no one else will. Use a piece of scotch tape and dab it on the grill. You can use a toothpick to lightly press the tape on the grill to get into the corners. You may have to do it with multiple pieces of tape if your grill is very dirty.

    I'm not saying I have immaculate pocket interiors by any means, but I have never had any lint anywhere in my phones. So I have to say, for me, it's not that hard to achieve.

    Buy a can of compressed air at any store that sells it. Blow the dust and debris away with a few short blasts. Do not use a vacuum.

    I use the toothpick end of one of these to clean my lightning port, speaker and mic.
