Not Using a Screen Protector or Case
Like everything else on Apple’s iPhones, the glass used in their construction have steadily improved over the years. While they’re fairly drop- and scratch-resistant now, they’re not invulnerable to scratches or shattering.
- Buy a good screen protector. Despite having the newest version of Gorilla Glass, iPhones are still prone to scratching from car keys or beach sand.
Pop a good case on it. You don’t have to get a bulky case. Find one that suits your needs and know that something is better than nothing.
- … But still avoid dropping it. Sure, no one means to drop their iPhone. But even with a case, a drop can result in internal damage that isn’t visible on the outside. Try your hardest to avoid it.
