PurePort was founded when wife-and-husband team, Kate & Josh Swinnerton, got tired of repeatedly cleaning the ports on their iPhones and their young kids’ iPads.
After trying many home remedies, and seriously damaging an iPhone with a paperclip (!) they went searching for a product to clean Lightning ports properly – but found nothing adequate.
Researching the problem, they were surprised how many other Apple users also had regular problems with unreliable Lightning port connections – over half of those surveyed complained of similar issues!
Using a digital microscope, they looked inside 100s of Lightning ports, and were shocked by the amount of hair, lint, dust, stains and other debris found, even when the devices looked clean on the outside. So the development of PurePort began.
