Keep Your iPhone Ports Clean with the iPhone Dust Cap

The iPhone dust cap seals the earphone and charger ports to prevent debris and dust from getting in. It is a convenient way of keeping the ports clean and preventing damage that may be caused by dirt particles. eBay stocks different dust caps for varying iPhone models, all at varying price points.

Does the use of the dust plug change the look of the iPhone?

No. The iPhone dust caps are available in a variety of colours to match the body of your phone and their size makes them unobtrusive. Alternatively, choose a contrasting colour to add a bit of bling to your device.

What makes the dust cap better that just using a phone casing?

Most casings do not have port plugs. While they cover the back and the sides of your phone, the ports are not covered. When you use a port plug, you get the following features:

  • Total protection from dirt, sand, and grime.
  • Durability and tear resistance.
  • Exact fit for the ports for which it is intended.
  • Easy to put in, and easy to remove when you need to use the port.
Is the cap safe for the user and the phone?

The cap is made of food-grade silicone. Therefore, it does not react with your iPhone metal, does not emit radiation, and is not hazardous to your health. It is also an inert material that does not react with water. The cap is also made to complement the design of the port so that it fits without damaging the walls or connector pins in the ports.

Are there dust caps for different iPhone models?

Yes. The dust caps are customised to fit specific models. While the iPhone ports are of a standard size, purchasing the dust cap that fits your specific model of the iPhone ensures that the plug does not look big or cumbersome. It also does not fall off when using your phone. See the manufacturer site for details on the different iPhone dust plugs available.

Are there other benefits of using the dust plug?

Yes, apart from protecting your iPhone from dust, the iPhone dust plug prevents sand and clothing lint from getting into the ports. Clothing lint usually gets into the ports when you keep your phone in your pocket. Besides, sealing the ports prevents damage that may lead to bad internal connections and slow charging.
