How to Avoid Static Shock When Using Your iPod/iPhone?
Any two objects that come in contact can exchange charges between them and become two oppositely charged objects. An iPod/iPhone in your pocket can build up charge as it rubs against your cloth. The charge built-up on your iPod/iPhone can discharge through ear bud/headphone giving you a small shock. The key is to prevent the static shock by reducing the charge build up and by taking simple precautions. Know when the charge build up can happen and know how to avoid.
Charge build up is high when you use synthetic polyester clothes, try other materials like cotton.
When the condition is dry there is more chance for charge build up. Try to increase moisture level by using moisturizing cream on you or humidifying your room. You could also use anti-static lotion on you.
Apple also suggests to keep your iPod/iPhone out of wind by having a cover or keeping it in your pocket. If you jog/exercise iPod/iPhone in your pocket, there is a good chance that the charge build can be high as it rubs against clothes. Avoid removing your iPod/iPhone from your pocket frequently.
