iPhone care tips to survive a 2 year contract

iPhone care tips

This is your complete guide to the best iPhone care tips that will maximize its lifespan. Like a car, there is routine maintenance you should perform so that you can save money — not actively, but in the long term. Spending a little time and energy now will save you from more costly repairs and replacements later on.

Instead of making your phone an invincible piece of technology, proper maintenance is more about spending your 2 year contract not hating your phone. You will still want to upgrade eventually, but it is more a question of whether you will do it on your own schedule or when the your battery is shot. You could be forced to sign another contract because your phone is broken and you don’t want to shell out money to fix it.

Following these simple iPhone care tips for maintenance will allow you the freedom to upgrade when it makes the most sense for you. When you do upgrade, you can also sell your old phone for the highest amount possible. This could mean huge savings in the long run. The higher the quality of your phone, the more money you’ll get back when you sell it and Orchard offers the most money for your used iPhone.

iPhone Care Tips

Daily Tips for Charging

Bad battery life is usually the biggest concern people have about their phone. A battery replacement starts at $99 through Apple, while third party providers might not offer high quality repairs.

Monthly Cleaning

Even though your phone might work fine, the cosmetic condition has a big impact on its value. At Orchard, a well kept phone is worth $110 more than one with a lot of physical imperfections.

A lot of people bring their phone in for service, complaining that their battery isn’t charging or sound is not coming from their headphones. Repair shops, e.g. iRepair, might charge up to $80 for dealing with these problems, though it’s only a matter of cleaning to sort it out. 

Monthly Tips for Data Management

You can find out how much free space you have left by following: Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage. Here, you can see the size of each app. Selecting an app reveals the additional “Documents & Data” associated with it.
