How to properly care for your Mac, iPad and iPhone?

Apple makes its devices from very durable materials. But even the company’s gadgets require careful handling and proper care. Our experts’ recommendations will help you avoid a visit to the service center and extend the life of your Mac , iPad and iPhone .

What do you need to know before cleaning Apple equipment ? 

It is recommended to use only a soft, lint-free cloth to clean the screen and case . Hard fleecy fabrics and towels, including paper ones, are not suitable for these purposes. The best way to clean the display, keyboard and other surfaces is with wipes with a 70% ethyl alcohol solution or special disinfectant wipes – for example, Clorox  

Spray aerosols, solvents, detergents, and those containing bleach, acetone or hydrogen peroxide are extremely dangerous to use! You should not even wipe the textile and leather surfaces of cases and other accessories, not to mention equipment, with disinfectant solutions.  

Also avoid getting moisture into the openings of the device. But if liquid does get inside your device, we recommend that you do not hesitate and contact an authorized Apple service center in Azerbaijan . 

How to clean the screen of Mac iPad and iPhone 

How to properly care for your Mac, iPad and iPhone?

Before performing any actions on Apple equipment turn it off and disconnect it from the power adapter . All peripheral devices should also be turned off, and cases and other accessories should be removed.  

Lightly dampen the cloth with water or a special cleaner. Do not spray the product onto the screen itself , otherwise the liquid may seep into the display and cause damage.  

Use a soft, lint-free cloth. The ideal option is microfiber cloths. You need to wipe the screen very carefully ; the pressure should be minimal so as not to damage it.  

If there is too much dust on the screen, do not try to wipe it off immediately. First, blow off or brush away the dust with a special broom to avoid the formation of small scratches.   

By the way, the displays of modern devices have an oleophobic coating , which is resistant to fingerprints. Over time, it wears off – and this is a natural result of using the device. But if not properly cared for, the coating will wear off much faster. 

How to clean the case of an Apple device ? 

By and large, the same recommendations for cleaning the case of a MacBook, iPad or iPhone apply as for the screen: soft cloth, low humidity, moderate pressure on the device. Using a special product, removing dirt from the case will not be difficult at all. 

A serious enemy for technology, in particular for Mac, is dust . It constantly flies in the air, and only regular cleaning helps reduce its number. But it doesn’t completely get rid of dust. Its particles inevitably penetrate inside the MacBook case and settle on parts. This worsens heat transfer: the computer begins to overheat, make noise and work slower. In particularly advanced cases, some components may fail. For example, a video chip is sensitive to overheating.

To prevent breakdowns, do maintenance on your Mac’s cooling system at least once a year. It is extremely difficult to do this on your own: you need professional tools and knowledge of design features. One wrong action and you can easily damage the cable connecting the keyboard to the board. 

On your own, you can remove dust and crumbs that get into the keyboard mechanism. This is a common problem for those who snack at the computer. Wipe the buttons with a dry cloth or soft brush. To blow out the keyboard, use a can of compressed air . A vacuum cleaner, a hair dryer with cold air, or a syringe are suitable for available means. 

You can quickly and accurately clean your Mac from dust at the iSpace service center. Our engineers will carefully clean the internal elements of dust, crumbs, and cat hair and give advice on computer maintenance.
