You can cut your finger as you swipe to unlock your iPhone. Sounds bad, right? Here’s more dangers that a cracked iPhone screen bring.

Aside from a very disgusting aesthetics of your iPhone, a cracked screen brings more bad news to the table. So if you’re a type of the person who goes around using a cracked iPhone screen, you might be interested to know what other thing you’re missing out – or bad things you get.

Cracked iPhone screens can get worse

A cracked phone screen is a broken phone screen and it’s not going to get any better over time. In the worst-case scenario, a cracked or shattered touch screen will be so damaged that the capacitive touch functionality will no longer respond to finger gestures. Cracks indicate that the screen is no longer structurally sound; a phone with a cracked screen is more likely to shatter when dropped than a phone without a cracked screen. After the screen shatters you won’t be able to see what’s on the screen, making the device fairly useless. Additionally, finger oils and debris will work their way into the cracks and can further damage the screen over time.

Cracked iPhone screens offers protection

The glass cover on a cellular phone’s touch screen not only functions as a user-interface device, but it also protects the inner workings of the machine. It’s safe to clean a non-cracked screen with a water-dampened cloth. If your screen’s cracked, it’s no longer able to keep liquids from working its way inside the phone, which makes cleaning the screen with water a risky affair because water inside the phone can short-out or break the device. Additionally, many phones tout water-resistant functionally, letting you submerge the device safely for several minutes If your phone was water resistant, it’s not anymore if it’s cracked.

Cracked iPhone screens can cut your fingers

Unless you’ve got some mean finger callouses going on, there’s a chance you’ll cut yourself when you run your finger across the screen cracks. If the screen is severely cracked, you could end up with small glass splinters digging in to your skin. Additionally, glass shards may fall off of the screen when it’s in your pocket, purse or bag, creating a safety risk.

Cracked iPhone screens lets you miss details

A cracked screen is a distracting screen. Instead of being able to look at a screen and read content, you may have to scroll or reorient the phone to move the content you’re trying to read outside of the cracked area. Spending the extra time to view content on a phone with a cracked screen makes viewing the phone a more significant distraction when multitasking. For example, screen cracks may take your eyes off the road for a few more seconds when driving and using a GPS app, which is a major safety risk.
