AN APPLE employee has taken to TikTok to share their top tips on protecting gadgets from wear and tear.
Apple technology is popular, functional, and always has a sleek look – but some products are delicate and should be handled with care.
TikToker @KarlitaBonitaa says she’s worked at an Apple store for three years.
She uses the knowledge she’s gleaned from working for Apple to provide her TikTok following with hacks, Tricks, and insight for getting the most out of Apple gear.
At the top of one of her most-viewed videos, she advises against keeping any liquids in the workspace – it takes just one spill to kill a laptop, Telefon, or tablet.
“If I ever did get liquid in one of my devices, I’ll never put it in rice,” Sie sagte.
In einem follow-up TikTok, @KarlitaBonitaa explains that rice grains can get into the device’s port holes and damage the interior hardware.
The original video goes on to advise users to occasionally and deliberately power down gadgets.
“I’ll never use my computer for too long without shutting it down on purpose,” Sie sagte.
MacWorld reported that shutting down an Apple computer will clear the device’s Random Access Memory (RAM) and give the device a clean slate.
RAM is the short-term storage container where recent browsing and app usage live on the computer – clogging up the RAM will slow the computer down and a shutdown can fix it.

The TikTok video also reminds users to clean their devices and keep their workspace clean as well.
The gross truth is that bugs can crawl into the device – the last thing any user wants is a bug to feel at home inside their products.
zuletzt, @KarlitaBonitaa advises against “counterfeit” chargers.
While third-party chargers are widely discouraged, the TikToker makes the distinction that she would buy a third-party charger but not an Apple knock-off.
