If you have an iPhone that has fallen into water, we have explained 3 different ways how you can get the water out of the speakers.

Smartphones have become an essential part of our daily lives. However, accidents such as dropping into water or liquid contact can cause serious damage to the phones.

If this phone is an iPhone, it is very important to drain the water from its speakers as soon as possible. Water can seriously damage the speakers and cause muffled sound.

Fortunately, there are some workarounds to get this feature working on your iPhone and we will now share with you everything you need to know about it.

What to do if you drop your iPhone in water

If you have an iPhone that has fallen into water, we have explained 3 different ways how you can get the water out of the speakers. But first, let’s take a look at the steps to take if your phone falls into water.

Disconnect any accessories connected to your iPhone and remove the iPhone from its case if you are using it.

If you spill anything other than water, clean the affected area with fresh water. Also, make sure that the water pressure of the faucet is not high.

Make sure to wipe your wet iPhone with a soft dry cloth to prevent excess water from getting into more areas.

Never connect your wet iPhone to a charger. This will help prevent short circuits that could damage your iPhone.
