by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with PhoneSoap to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a PhoneSoap 3 Smartphone UV Sanitizer.

As the name suggests, the PhoneSoap is designed to eliminate all of the nasty germs on your iPhone using a UV light. Most of us take our phones everywhere, including places rich with bacteria and other little microbes.

PhoneSoap says that its UV sanitizer kills 99.99 percent of all germs, and in addition to working on your ‌iPhone‌, it will sanitize anything that fits inside. It's even able to kill cold and flu viruses.

All you need to do is open up the PhoneSoap, tuck your ‌iPhone‌ inside, and leave it there at night or for just a few minutes at a time. It doesn't take long to eliminate germs with a UV light, and the PhoneSoap will shut off automatically after 10 minutes so you don't need to worry about overheating or damage to your devices.

There are UV lightbulbs on both the top and bottom of the PhoneSoap to sanitize both sides of an ‌iPhone‌ at once, and the design is meant to get the light to tiny crevices that liquids don't reach.

The PhoneSoap, priced at $60, is multipurpose, so while it's sanitizing your phone with UV light, it can also charge it thanks to two ports (USB-C and USB-A) on the side. It is big enough to fit all ‌iPhone‌ models, and it also works with credit cards, keys, money, and more.

I was gifted one of these and didn't use it once. You can't convince me that sanitizing your phone does anything legitimate other than helping ease your mind by the fact you take your phone into the bathroom with you. Unless you wear gloves whenever you handle money or thoroughly sanitize your hands after using the ketchup on the table in a public restaurant before grabbing a fry with your bare hands... this product does very little of significance.

Not to mention the fact that it's ENORMOUS! You've got to have some night stand to accommodate that monstrosity.

This product exists because all the human phone sanitizers left the planet on the “b” ark. They have just gone on ahead.

How about not spending any money, time, or effort on another item destined for the landfill, and simply let your immune system do what it's supposed to do. Your immune system needs regular activity, just like the rest of you, to stay in tip-top shape.
