How To Get Rid Of The Green Dot On My iPhone

Apple’s iPhone has a green dot on the top left corner of the screen. You can remove this dot by pressing and holding the Home button and then moving the finger to the bottom of the screen. If you release your finger before the dot has finished changing color, it will keep changing color until you release it again.

1. You can use a stylus to remove the green dot.

2. You can use a plastic card to remove the green dot.

3. Use your fingernail to remove the green dot.

4. Press and hold the Home button and move your finger to the bottom of the screen until you see the green dot in color change, then release it and it will be gone.

5. If you have an iPhone 5S, simply slide your finger from left to right across the screen until you see a small circle on the side of your finger, and then pull up slightly on that circle with your thumb and it will take care of it for you!

6. Remove quickly by using two fingers on top of each other (a sort of “pinch” move) so that they are touching while they are still pressed down on one another (like you would do when closing an envelope). This should get rid of any remaining residue without leaving any marks or smudges on the screen.

7. If you are an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus user, simply tap and hold the Home button until the green dot disappears.

This should get rid of any remaining residue without leaving any marks or smudges on the screen.

How To Change The Colors Of The Iphone’s Top Left Corner?

1. Use a piece of paper to cover the top left corner of the iPhone, then slide your finger across the screen to see if you can see it. If you cannot, then pinching or stretching won’t work.

2. This is also an issue with a lot of new cases and covers, so make sure that your case doesn’t interfere with this process!

3. If using a case or cover, try removing it and see if that changes anything.

4. You can also try using an app called “Top Left Corner” which you can find in the App Store for $0.99 (I’m not sure what version this app is for, but it’s been around for a while).

5. If that doesn’t work, try using some compressed air to blow away anything stuck on the screen, like dust or lint from the clothes you were wearing when removing your case/cover/etc.

How To Protect iPhone From Viruses:

1. Always keep your iPhone in a pocket or purse when going to places where it is not secured.

2. Avoid using the same charger for different iPhones, especially if you have more than one phone.

3. Do not use any third-party apps from unknown sources, as they can be a virus source as well.

4. Don’t visit porn sites, read news about sex and violence in the news or on the web, etc., etc., etc…

5. Do not download any apps from unknown sources, as there are many viruses that are disguised as apps that can infect your iPhone and other computers (like laptops) on your network with viruses and spyware (like keyloggers).
