How does my iPhone / iPad hold onto the nano button?

The intelligent surface of the nano-pads sucks with countless tiny suction cups on the surface of the Bumper, the iPhone or the iPad.

It can be easily solved and used again. Please note, however, that the pads also become slightly dirty if you often loosen and reconnect the gadgets, or if the case lasts longer without content. Then the suction decreases and the surface of the nano-button can be cleaned with a damp cloth (WITHOUT CLEANER). Then let the button dry and insert the iPhone / iPad again.

Cleaning the nano-button

When the iPhone or iPad is often detached from the case, tiny dust and dirt particles get stuck in the suction cups and clog them up.

Please only clean the buttons with a damp cloth - NEVER WITH CLEANING AGENTS. Let the surface of the nano button dry completely and use your gadget as usual.

Is a germanmade. Case with nanofunction the right one for me?

If you use your iPhone / iPad mainly in the case and you do not need to solve it often, then you will enjoy using our nano cases for a long time.

If you are one of the users who often use the iPhone or iPad in different usage environments, we would basically make you a germanmade user. Cases with bumpers advise, otherwise the life of the Nano Button suffers greatly.

Why is my iPhone case delivered with additional bumper?

The iPhone 8 and newer is coated on the front and back with a fingerprint-resistant and grease-resistant surface. Neither our Nano-Button, nor anything else will hold that up. Therefore, but also for further protection, we deliver our iPhone cases with an additional bumper.
