Apple iPad: How to remove scratches from the screen

How to make your iPad screen a little bit better by removing some nasty scratches on it. Here’s a simple way to do exactly that.

Things Needed

  • Lint-free cloth

  • Water

Your iPad screen is covered in oleophobic coating that repels some of the oil from your hands. Over time, this coating will become less effective, and scratches may also damage it. When cleaning scratches on your iPad screen, never use a cloth that has a rough texture, such as coarse paper paper towels or a hard sponge. These materials will likely add more scratches to your iPad than it already has. Consider buying a protective cover for your iPad if you continue to experience scratching on the screen.

1. Power down the iPad and remove any charging cords to which it is currently connected. For instance, if your iPad attached is to your computer via dock connector to USB cable, unplug the cable at both ends.

2. Slightly dampen a soft, lint-free cloth. Rather than placing the cloth under running water for several seconds, which will allow the cloth to become saturated, swiftly pass the cloth under running water and then wring it out.

3. Rub the cloth on the iPad screen, applying only light pressure. Move the cloth in a circular motion over the scratches. Work in the direction of the scratch — if the scratch runs from right to left, rub the cloth in the same direction.
