Apple’s iPhone 4 is one of the most sought after mobile phones in the world, if not the most. It’s an amazing piece of technology that redefined the whole concept of a smartphone. There are so many things you can do with an iPhone 4 that some fans of the product even say that you won’t need any other phone. Of course, all the technology and the demand for the iPhone 4 also means that you have to pay a premium to get one. An iPhone 4 is expensive and buying one is not just a simple consumer purchase, it is an investment — that’s why protecting your iPhone 4 should be a top priority if you own one.
There are a number of things you can do to protect your iPhone 4 from loss or damage. Here are some of them:
Protect your iPhone 4 with a passcode
A lot of iPhone 4 users don’t bother to put in a passcode – the four-digit code that locks the phone’s screen. They see it as a bother and an extra step before they use their phone. But don’t mind that extra step, the passcode protects your iPhone 4 in case it is lost. There’s an option that will wipe the iPhone if the wrong passcode is entered ten times. In the event your phone gets lost you’re sure that your private data will not fall into the wrong hands.
Backup your iPhone 4 data
This step is not really about protecting your iPhone 4 as much as protecting the data inside it, which is equally important. Do periodic backups of your data so that you have the latest data with you in case your iPhone 4 gets damaged or lost.
Use an iPhone 4 case
Your iPhone 4 is a wonderful tech device but it is not yet designed to totally withstand physical abuse. Protect your iPhone 4 from scratches and minimize the negative effects of bumps and accidental drops by putting it in a protective case. There are many cases that you can choose from, from svelte, barely there cases; colorful cases, and virtual tanks that protect your iPhone completely. If you’re more concerned about protecting your iPhone 4 rather than aesthetics, get a bulky case that offer strong protection. The bulky case also offers an additional benefit – its added heft will make you notice more if it slides out of your pocket.
Consider an iPhone 4 insurance
As mentioned above, an iPhone 4 is an investment. Just like any other investment, you can offer additional protection for your iPhone 4 by enrolling for an iPhone 4 insurance. This is probably one of the best ways of protecting yourself from theft. iPhone 4’s attract thieves because of its value. With an insurance you can rest assured that if this happens you can file a claim and get compensation and buy yourself a new iPhone 4.
