PS5 PlayStation 5 Dust Catcher 1

There are a lot of thoughtful design flourishes to the PlayStation 5’s hardware, but the dust catchers are an ingenious idea. Situated behind the primary faceplate, you simply need to detach the outer layer to locate two holes. These can then be easily vacuumed out to keep the console clean and operation quiet.

There is, amusingly, a disclaimer at the end of the teardown video that stresses the “dust catcher does not guarantee the hardware clogging from dust” – but obviously it’s going to help you keep your console clean, which should help preserve its lifespan.
