How to clear the bubbles in your screen from the OtterBox
OtterBox make a range of protective smartphone cases. (The Otter Box)

OtterBox offers a wide selection of protective cases for smartphones designed to prevent scratches and other types of damage. The "Defender" range for the iPhone features a transparent screen that fits over the phone's screen. Small bubbles of air or oily residue can sometimes form between the two screens when you fit the case. OtterBox is aware of the problem and has posted a response on its official YouTube channel.

  1. 1

    Before fitting the case, rub your palm across the screen of the phone. Your hands should be clean but not recently washed, as you want to transfer oils from your palm to the screen. This may be enough to prevent the two screens from sticking and creating the bubble effect.

  2. 2

    Hold the case so that the interior of the screen is facing upwards. Hold a bottle of baby powder horizontally a few inches from the screen. Gently squeeze until a fine dusting of particles is released onto the screen. Don't squeeze too hard or tip the powder into the screen as you only require a very fine coating. Assemble the case as normal.

  3. 3

    Fit an anti-glare film to the phone. This is a thin, transparent membrane that attaches directly onto the screen. Align the film to the screen and gently smooth it with your palm, ensuring there is no trapped air. Fit the OtterBox case to the phone as normal.
