- Apple just released an updated support page in light of the novel coronavirus outbreak, stating that it’s okay to use products like Clorox wipes and Purell to clean your iPhone.
- Those products and similar ones are already sold out at most stores as people prepare for the accelerated spread of COVID-19.
- There’s another device available on Amazon called the PhoneSoap 3 Pro that can also kill COVID-19 and all other forms of coronavirus, but it’s selling out fast right now.

Each passing day brings thousands upon thousands of new COVID-19 cases around the world, and the novel coronavirus is just beginning to spread in various regions around the US. Read information from any reputable source and you’ll see that it all makes one thing plainly clear: this is going to get much, much worse before it gets any better. Some recent estimates suggest that more than one-quarter of the population in the United States will end up getting the novel coronavirus before all is said and done. That’s staggering, and some people suggest this estimate might actually end up being low.
Now, before you work yourself into a panic, it’s important to note that the majority of COVID-19 cases are mild and not serious at all. Issues typically arise in elderly people and individuals with underlying issues who are already immunocompromised. That said, you should do everything in your power to avoid getting the novel coronavirus even if you’re in perfect health. First, you never know if you might have an underlying issue, even if the odds seem low. Second, the spread of COVID-19 will continue to accelerate unless people take precautions.
Things like Clorox wipes and Purell are already next to impossible to come by, though you can still find some Purell products in stock on Amazon if you hurry. What you might not realize, however, is that there’s another type of product that can play a big role in stopping the spread of coronavirus.
Washing your hands is extremely important, of course, but it serves no purpose if you wash your hands when you get home and then continue using the same filthy smartphone that you were using while you were out. That’s where the PhoneSoap 3 Pro UV Smartphone Sanitizer comes in. This great device bathes your smartphone in virus-killing UV light for 5 minutes. Light is projected from above your smartphone and from blow the phone, so one pass is all you need to kill all those gross germs, COVID-19 included.
The good news is the PhoneSoap 3 Pro is still available for purchase right now on Amazon. The bad news, however, is that shipping estimates are already beginning to slip. Amazon typically ships much sooner than the estimate suggests though, so definitely order one now and it’ll likely arrive sooner than you think. There’s no telling when the PhoneSoap 3 will be completely sold out though, so this is probably your last chance to get one.
If you’re looking for other options, this portable smartphone UV sanitizer will be back in stock soon though we haven’t tested it, and the PurLite UV-C Sanitizer Box is the best in the business and available right now for same-day Prime shipping.
