Is Your iPhone 6 / 6 Plus Slippery? 3 Fixes Worth Trying!

Last updated: September 1, 2015 at 23:11 pm

When Apple launched the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, everyone said the device was the slimmest they have ever seen. And some of them who bought it? Found iPhones slippery.

Over the past one year, we have seen several iPhone users reporting this slippery behavior. We can’t blame the design or the panels.

But yes, having an iPhone 6 that slips from your hand is the worst dream ever, because to repair the broken iPhone glass, you have to pay quite a lot of money to Apple. That is why it is better to make your iPhones slippery-proof.

Discussed in this article are our 3 common solutions you can try to get a grip of your iPhone (and stop it from slipping through your hands):

Solution #1: Get Dry Shampoo

I have oily hands. After a bath, my hands are dry. But several hours later? They get oily, which means anything I hold has those oil stains on them.

To solve this problem, you can get a dry shampoo. Although any hand sanitizers works fine (if you have one at home, use it), but I have found out that dry shampoos work the best.

Amazon has lots of dry shampoos that sells from anywhere between $4 to $10. When you get one of those, your hands are dry for a longer period of time and holding an iPhone is much more easier.


Solution #2: Clean Your iPhone / Remove Screenguard

Simple yet often overlooked. If you have a screen guard on your iPhone 6 / 6 Plus at the back or front, remove it. Because some of the manufacturers create a really low-quality thin screenguard that attracts all kinds of dust and oily fingers immediately.

As you use the device regularly, those stains accumulates, making the iPhone more slippery than ever. You can either get rid of the screen guard or clean your iPhone using this microfibre cleaning cloth that is well worth the $10 investment.


Solution #3: Get Leather Cases

We prefer Apple’s leather cases as only Apple knows how to create a beautiful case for its own iPhones. They are slightly expensive – yet they fit perfectly on your iOS devices.


Apple leather cases are solid! They are available in several colors — all of them are in stock on the Amazon website.
