You’re doing more harm to your iPhone 12 than you think and you will know why soon (if you carefully read through).
It’s funny how folks move around with their iPhone 12 without any form of protection. It is almost as if the urge to flaunt these awesome devices has been unleashed on some categories of people and I’m right here silently hoping that you’re not one of them.
Unfortunately, one of my tennis buddies is in this caucus and I cannot but wonder how and why he got trapped in it. Well, he learned his lessons already – the hard way, though.
Perhaps I should share his story so you can pick a lesson or two from it. Below is his story, follow closely;
When it comes to gadgets and accessories, Alex shares some similarities with me. we both love gadgets and hence, we test-run them as soon as they are launched. Then Later, we purchase anyone we deem fit.
This happened until iPhone 12 was released. We both made our purchases on the same day but right now as I write, after 3 months of iPhone 12 been released, his phone is being abandoned on the table in one corner of his garage where old toolboxes for fixing cars have their abode.
A little background story of what really transpired: sometime in December, we went hill-climbing and we were taking selfies up on the hill. Oblivious of the empty snack paper bag, he tripped and the phone fell off his hands.
Prior to this day, I had always warned him to protect his device but all to no avail. He would always laugh it off saying I was too over protective and one can’t be too careful.
I didn’t want to appear as the villain in his sad story else, I would have busted out with laughter. After all, I’m not the cause of his misfortune so, I eventually ended up laughing out loud. Sorry, ain’t sorry.
End result of his fallen phone? The screen was shattered beyond recognition because it fell freely from height – about a thousand dollars gone! just like that.
Apparently, he is going to read this and wonder why I had to tell his story in this manner. Sorry buddy, there is no better way to tell your story than I have done.
It would be very unfair and wrong to spice up his story or paint it like it was nothing serious when in actual fact, it’s more serious than getting a solid stain off your plain white shirt.
I want you to learn from his story and pick the appropriate lessons and then apply them to guard your devices.
Was he pained from his loss? Yeah. Did he wish he could have yielded to my advice before that occurrence? Yeah. Did he wish he never succumb to the hill-climbing picnic? Well, yeah. But it was too late already and nothing could be done to salvage the situation. A terrible loss, indeed!
Eventually, he got another iPhone 12 and this time around, he is being extra careful not to ruin its screen. However, I shared with him some tips to help him out and he’s been adhering strictly to them. So far, it’s helping him and he is happy.
In the same vein, I have painstakingly written in this article 3 tips I shared with Alex so that you could as well learn them and apply them where necessary.
