So it is very important to protect your iPhone from any incident. In this article, we are going to discuss how you can protect your iPhone from water damage by following a few methods.
Top 5 Methods to protect your iPhone from any liquid
- Download Sonic App
The easiest way to protect your iPhone from water is to install the Sonic app. This free app plays a low-frequency sound that forces water out of the speaker port. You can download it from the App Store. Once you have downloaded the app, you can open it and begin the ejection process. Make sure you put your phone on a flat surface. If you don’t want to use this method, you can also turn off the sound.
- Use Water Eject Siri Shortcut
You can also use “Water Ejection Shortcut”. First, open your Shortcuts application. Click on ‘Get Shortcut’ and then ‘Add Shortcut’. Once there, tap on ‘Water Eject’. You’ll find a shortcut button at the bottom of the screen. Then, tap “Start Water Eject” on the top menu. Then, follow the directions on the screen to start the ejection process. If your iPhone has already been damaged, this method won’t be a problem.
- Turn off Volume Buttons
To prevent water from damaging your iPhone’s speakers, you should try to turn off the volume. Even though your iPhone is water-resistant, the water inside its speaker grills can take a while to be ejected. To prevent this from happening, you can use the Water Eject Siri shortcut to play high-frequency sound. However, if you have a speaker, you can use this feature to play music.
- Use a clean dry cloth
If your iPhone 11 is soaked with liquid, you can try to dry it with a lint-free cloth or silica gel packets. Rice will dry out quicker than silica beads. You should leave your iPhone in the rice overnight to allow the water to evaporate. When you are done drying the phone, you should take it to an authorized Apple store for repair. When you’re done, you’re all set to use the Water Eject Siri shortcut to get rid of the water.
Afterwards, you should remove the speaker and wipe it dry using a dry cloth. In case your iPhone is wet with water, try to wipe it off with a soft cloth. If you’ve accidentally dropped it on the ground, don’t forget to close the sim tray so that you can dry it without any water. While doing this, avoid touching the speaker area and the lightning port. This will prevent you from drying your iPhone properly.
- Use FixMySpeakers
This app will blow away water from the speaker. You can also try the Fix My Speaker app to see if it removes water from the device. To test if the app works, play audio to check whether the water came out. If you are unable to do this, you can also use a dry cloth to wipe away the liquid from the iPhone.
Now we can say that you can easily remove or eject water from your iPhone when your phone falls accidently in the washroom or maybe some water drops splashes while showering. You can also share this article with iPhone 12 users to acknowledge them about water damage in their iPhone 12.
