There has been no end of discussion about the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and how boring most of us “tech-types” find them. There are early conjured “sales figures” and anecdotal evidence for and against good sales numbers. There have also been the typical disaster predictions and the hand-wringing over how Apple has apparently lost its way. Just listen to this week’s This Week in Tech podcast for a perfect example.
I share this tip this week because, for the third year in a row, I find myself having the same problem. It seems that the Lightning Port of the iPhones 6, 6S and 7 all have a particular attraction to lint. Since I wear jeans to work most days and keep my phone in my front pocket, this lint build-up is inevitable and always seems to pop up right about now. However, it is easily remedied if you know what to look for.
