Clean the Touchscreen

The phone screens require minor maintenance, but you may need to clean the screen periodically.

Use a clean, dry, microfiber cloth—the kind you would use to clean glass surfaces—to wipe the screen. Don’t use chemicals to clean the screen.

Before you clean the screen, you need to disable it so you don't activate phone functions while you wipe the touchscreen.


  1. Go to Settings > Basic.
  2. Select Screen Clean.
  3. Wipe the screen with the clean, dry, microfiber cloth.
    Note: If the screen is still dirty after cleaning, dampen a soft, lint-free cloth with an isopropyl alcohol and water solution of 50:50, then wipe the screen with the cloth. Always use the dampened cloth to apply the solution; never apply the solution directly to the screen because the solution could seep inside the screen or stain the phone. Do not use chemicals to clean the screen.
  4. To enable the touchscreen, follow the on-screen instructions.
