Anybody have any ideas how to keep dust and lint from collecting in the speaker grills of iPhones? Or ideas on cleaning them? The grills on my current iPhone 8+ are pretty dirty and wondering if I can prevent that on my Xs Max.

It’s inevitable. I use a soft toothbrush to gently clean it once a week. No issues.

A more pressing concern is keeping lint & crap out of the lightning port. There's little silicone plugs you can get on eBay for just that.
