Dozens of small air pockets spread across the screen of an iPhone can be annoying. Most bubbles on the iPhone screen are caused by improper application of the screen protector. When not laid down correctly, air may be trapped between the screen protector and the screen. Also, dirt and lint on the screen may be trapped under the screen protector, causing bubbles. These bubbles can be removed with ease.

  1. 1

    Peel off the screen protector. Place the screen protector on a clean surface. This will prevent it from picking up any dirt.

  2. 2

    Spray a microfiber cloth with a soapy water solution or window cleaning spray. Wipe the screen with the cloth. Use solid strokes to ensure fewer streaks across the screen.

  3. 3

    Wipe the screen with a dry microfiber cloth to ensure no moisture is left on the screen.

  4. 4

    Apply adhesive tape to the iPhone screen, then remove it. Apply and remove the tape across the entire screen face to pick up any dirt or lint on the screen.

  5. 5

    Reapply the screen protector slowly and at an angle. Rub the protector against the surface, making your way up the screen, to prevent air pockets.

  6. 6

    Use a credit card or small squeegee to iron out the air pockets. Press down firmly and push the bubbles to the edge of the screen.
