Clean the dirt off the iPad screen

If the touch screen is smudged and smudged from repeated bumps, make sure you take proper precautions when cleaning it. The wrong type of cloth can cause a lot of damage. This is the right way to make your iPad screen look like new.

what is needed

Before you start cleaning your iPad, there are a few supplies you’ll need on hand.

  • Microfiber cloth. If none are available, a soft, lint-free cloth will work. If you wear glasses, the little square you use to clean them will work perfectly for the iPad.
  • Water. You will need to wet the cloth, but use only water. Never use cleaning products or solvents. These can break the protective layer on the surface of the iPad.

How to clean your iPad

Cleaning your iPad is easy and only takes a few steps.

Be sure to use a soft, non-abrasive cloth while cleaning iPad.

  1. Disconnect your iPad.

  2. If you keep your iPad in a protective case, carefully remove it.

  3. Lightly dampen the cloth with water If water can be removed from the cloth, it is too damp. Do not use cleaning products or solvents. Make sure the cloth is free of lint.

  4. Use the cloth to clean the screen. Start at the top and use gentle side-to-side motions to clean the entire screen. Do not get moisture into any openings, including the camera or headphone jack.

  5. Let the iPad air dry.

  6. Replace the protective cover.

Ongoing care of your iPad

Because iPads are largely touch-based (after all, people use keyboards and keyboard shortcuts), you’ll be cleaning your iPad’s screen quite often. Keep in mind, though, that iPads have an oleophobic coating on the screen that repels oils from your fingers. Over time this coating will wear off with normal use, but the use of an abrasive cloth or solvents will accelerate this effect.

A tempered glass screen protector can be cleaned in the same way, but be especially careful that moisture does not get under the glass screen. If moisture gets inside the iPad, take it to a certified repair shop.
