If you are the proud new owners of an iPhone then first let me congratulate you on joining the ranks of those who own and operate the smartest phone on the planet! The second thing that I would like to say to you is now that you have the world's phone in your possession make sure you take the necessary precautions to protect and look after it! At a minimum you will need to protect both the phone itself and the touch screen.

Why You Need to Protect Your iPhone

Whilst your iPhone might just be the most sophisticated gadget that you own, it is by no means the strongest. The iPhone 3 weighs just 133 grams, whilst the Phone 4 is only 4 grams heavier at 137 grams. In designing the iPhone Apple will have had to trade-off strength for weight; less weight typically means less strength. Don't be alarmed - your iPhone will not fall apart during everyday use but it might get damaged if you accidentally drop it. Don't take a chance - get it protected!

iPhone Protection

The first thing you should purchase after your iPhone is a protective case. iPhone cases come in a wide variety of materials, designs and colors so make sure you pick one that suits your style. When selecting a case you should also purchase one that is strong and sturdy (Case-mate and Otterbox are known for their quality cases). Purchasing a cheap case might save you a few dollars now but if you were to drop your phone there is a good chance the case will not work and you will end up having to buy a new phone.

Touch Screen Protection

The touch screen is one area that many people fail to protect. However, as the main interface with the iPhone is via the touch screen it is extremely important that this area of the phone be given the very best protection. Protecting the touch screen on your iPhone is simply a case of applying a screen protector. Screen protectors, particularly those manufactured by Zagg, have been designed to withstand sharp objects such as keys and coins helping to keep your screen scratch-free. They also help avoid the 'smudgy' screen affect brought about by the natural oils on your finger tips.

Protect Your New iPhone Before it Gets Damaged

When purchasing a new iPhone (or if you are the owner of an unprotected iPhone) always make sure you purchase an iPhone case and screen protector as well. A good quality set will cost you about $80 to $100, but it will be money well spent.
