How to remove scratches and shine back on a steel frame on iPhone X, iPhone XS, or iPhone 11 that fades after a couple of months of use
YouTube user Quinn Nelson of Snazzy Labs demonstrated in his video how to carefully remove a thin layer of metal from the surface of a steel frame and return it to its former sparkle. All you need is a paste-like abrasive polish (links below) for metal and a piece of microfiber cloth.
You can buy polish here or here. Choose the 0.5 micron version to create a mirror finish. Wool grinding heads can be bought here, but you can do without them.
Just dab some of the paste on the fabric and start polishing the steel pieces gently. In order to polish the surface well, the pressure should be strong enough, and the movements should be circular.
Don’t worry, the glass surface on iPhone is tough and the polish won’t damage it. If some of the paste gets into the speaker holes or ports, it’s okay. Don’t forget that iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone 11 Pro are water resistant and can be rinsed under the tap when you’re finished polishing.
The fabric may turn black during the polishing process. This means that a thin layer of metal has begun to move away from the surface, and this is what we are trying to achieve. Rubbing well on the steel surface for a minute, remove any excess polish and wipe the frame well with a clean microfiber cloth. Do not be afraid to apply force – in order for the steel to shine again, you need to polish it to a shine.
If you repeat the above procedure two or three times for each facet, you will find that they sparkle like new again. However, be prepared for the metal to be scratched again after a few months and you will have to polish it again. You can use a polisher for the best effect, but if you don’t have one, a microfiber cloth will do.
ATTENTION!!! As mentioned above, the method is suitable iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone 11 Pro (Silver) only, but not for other color models… Attempts to polish devices of other colors will result in the cover of the frame will simply peel off irrevocably…
