It’s finally summertime! It’s time for long days at the beach, fireworks, and barbeques with all of your friends and family. Unfortunately, it also means that your iPhone is at greater risk for damage. When bringing your iPhone places this summer, there are certain considerations you should make to ensure that you don’t have to bring your phone in for iPhone repair at Fix & Style Mobile Device Repair Center. Here are some ways you can protect your iPhone this summer.

Water damage

With summer comes more opportunity for swimming. However, this also means more opportunity to make a silly mistake when it comes to your iPhone. Before you jump into the pool or ocean, always double check your pockets for your phone to avoid water damage. Water damage can mean the end of your iPhone if you aren’t careful. If you are particularly concerned about water damage, a waterproof case may give you peace of mind.

Sand problems

Another concern you should have if you are taking your iPhone to the beach is sand. Whether you intend to or not, it is easy to bring home sand with you from the beach, and it is particularly easy when it gets trapped in your iPhone. You can protect your screen against sand problems with a screen protector, but sand can also weasel itself into the inside of your phone and cause irreparable damage. Prevent this problem by keeping your iPhone in a bag while you are on the beach, and refrain from using it.

Overheating

Another problem iPhones often face during the summer is overheating. While you may be fine laying out in the summer heat, your phone is not so lucky. An iPhone can only take up to 115 degrees Fahrenheit, which can easily be reached in your car on a hot day. Too much heat will damage the battery and may stop your iPhone from working entirely. Do not leave your phone in the car if you can help it, and be sure to leave it in the shade if you do; keep it out of direct sunlight at all times.
