Ewwwww… Your Phone Is Dirtier Than A Toilet Flush Handle

According to a study by Stanford University students, your phone is covered with 18 times more germs than a toilet handle which means, in short, anyone who touches your phone will get your disgusting, disgusting germs. The study, published in July, found that:

โ€œIf you put virus on a surface, like an iPhone, about 30 percent of it will get on your fingertips,โ€ Julian said. In turn, โ€œa fair amount of it may go from your fingers to your eyes, mouth or nose,โ€ the most likely routes of infection.

While most people are smart about their contact with other people, if youโ€™re like me and suck on your fingers for hours at a time and lick other people uncontrollably this could be a huge problem.

Incidentally, I predict that in four to five hours some janky OEM will release a case or something marketed as an iPhone germ killer. Mark my words.
