Is there any way to fix these scratches?

Hello ifixit community! I am new to repairing and today I dropped my iphone and it slid across a concrete floor.

I was wondering if there is anyway to minimize the damage and to cover up some of the scuffs and scratches. I provided an image of the phone. Much appreciated!

Is this a good question?

@pars , Parsa, The same kits used to polish headlights could be used to get rid of a lot of the scars but probably not the deepest, the kits range from $20-$40 at auto parts and big box stores. You could also consider putting a wrap/skin on it which would clean it right up or perhaps put it in a case. Check the links below for covers/wraps/cases. 1st link is video showing how to wrap phone. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Thank you so much for the answer! Yeah I already ordered a skin for it, but just wanted to see if there is a way to remove at least some of the scratches if I decided to sell it someday.


Also would you mind leaving a link for the polish headlight you mentioned?


@pars , Your welcome, see links below polishing kit and 2nd link shows how to use it. Good luck with your device.
