If you’ve had your iPhone for a while, maybe even a few months, it’s a good idea to clean the speaker. Before you start cleaning your speakers, wipe down all iPhone surfaces to remove dirt, oil, and grime. You should pay more attention to cleaning the speaker as well as the microphone of your iPhone. You need to make sure the brush is clean and dry before using it to clean your iPhone speaker.
Wipe the speakers with a clean, dry toothbrush, or if you have denatured alcohol, lightly dampen the top of the toothbrush and run it over the top and bottom iPhone speakers. The most effective and recommended way to clean your iPhone speaker is to gently use a soft bristle brush. If there is stubborn dirt on the iPhone speaker that won’t peel off, you can simply use duct tape or duct tape to clean the iPhone speaker.
If the cylindrical tape is picking up some debris, throw it away and use a new piece of clean tape to keep the dirt off the iPhone speaker. If you notice dirt picking up on a short piece of tape, replace it immediately with a clean piece to prevent dirt from getting back into the speaker. Gently clean the speaker from bottom to top, working several times along the length of the long, thin speaker.
If you’re using an iPhone 8 or later, you’ll see two sets of “speaker holes” on the bottom edge of the device. If you look at the bottom edge on the front of your iPhone, the grille on the right is the actual speaker, while the grille on the left only contains the microphone. The microphones and speakers on the front, bottom, and back of the iPhone, as well as the front of the iPhone, are still pretty fragile. As with speakers, you can also use an air rag to clean debris from your iPhone’s microphone.
Align the opening of the air diffuser with the opening of the microphone and blow a few puffs of compressed gas to blow the dust out of the microphone. If you have a can of compressed air, you can blow it from a safe distance (instead of directly into the iPhone’s speaker grill) to remove dust and clean it. Consumers use compressed air to remove dust from desktop computers, laptop keyboards, etc. You can also use it to clean iPhone speakers. Compressed air helps remove dust that may have gotten inside the lower speaker during the cleaning process.
Pay attention to the compressed air flow, keep it low or it may damage the inside of your iPhone. Sit back and clean the headphones and stereo speakers of your devices without the risk of damaging them.
