Appleâ€™s iPhone 4 is one of the most sought after mobile phones in the world, if not the most. Itâ€™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 wonâ€™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 — thatâ€™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 donâ€™t bother to put in a passcode â€“ the four-digit code that locks the phoneâ€™s screen. They see it as a bother and an extra step before they use their phone. But donâ€™t mind that extra step, the passcode protects your iPhone 4 in case it is lost. Thereâ€™s an option that will wipe the iPhone if the wrong passcode is entered ten times. In the event your phone gets lost youâ€™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 youâ€™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 â€“ 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 4â€™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.
