I’ve been using a bandaid but it makes it easier to drop my iPhone.

I put scotch tape on the speaker and light ports and it helps but I mean it’s a hassle constantly taking it off to charge and listen to music.

any tips?

This is a joke right? If not, go see a specialist..
i’ve thought about that but i mean...it’s such a minor thing although big inconvenience what would a doctor say???

Seriously? This has to be a joke. Maybe wear a thimble on your pinky?
yeah that’s basically what i’m doing with the bandaid.

it’s fine. don’t mean to get people worked up.

was just hoping for some outside the box solutions.

You didn’t tell us what phone you have. I would go for a smaller one if I was in your shoes.

Maybe cut back a bit on the phone use?? Less than 5 hours a day ought to do it...
my screen time is saying around 9-10 hours a day but a big chunk is youtube which is just for music! like i think around 3 hours is just youtube but again a big chunk of that is streaming music

Hold it differently. Use your other hand, wear a glove, stop using your phone. Use an iPad, a computer... I don't know what kind of remedy you were expecting here.

Silly thread.

Have noticed an increase in skin warts on my 10 year old Bishop Frise dog. Seems to have been diagnosed by my vet after getting the iPhone XS Max. Has anyone else found wart increase when using XS Max?

I hope this is not a wartgate! :confused:

Perhaps need to change to double face palm avi pic.
