Water Inside Speaker Iphone

if your iPhone speaker has been exposed to water, there are a few steps you can take to try and fix the issue. Please note that any tampering with your device may void your warranty.

Always remember, iPhones from the iPhone 7 and onward are water-resistant, not waterproof. They should withstand light splashes but not prolonged submersion.

Step 1: Power Off The Device

Whenever any electronic device is exposed to water, the first step is to power it off. Leaving it on can risk a short circuit, which may lead to irreversible damage.

Locate your power button, usually on the side of the iPhone, press and hold it until you see the "slide to power off" option. Slide the button, and your phone will shut down.

Step 2: Remove External Water

After powering off, you should focus on removing as much external water as possible. Start with a gentle shake. Be careful not to drop the device or shake it too vigorously.

The aim here is to let any water trapped in the nooks, such as the speakers and charging port, to drip out.

Next, use a clean, soft cloth to pat your iPhone dry. Make sure to clean the corners, the back, and around the buttons. Don't forget to dry off your charging port, headphone jack, and SIM card slot.

Avoid using a hairdryer or any heat source to dry your phone, as extreme temperatures can cause additional damage.

Step 3: Absorb Internal Moisture

Despite removing the external water, there might still be moisture inside your device. To absorb this, you can use a desiccant. A popular choice is uncooked rice because of its easy availability.

Fill a bowl or a ziplock bag with rice and bury your iPhone in it, ensuring that the device is completely surrounded. The rice will help absorb the moisture over time. Let it sit there for at least 24-48 hours.

Step 4: Use "Sound To Get Water Out of Phone" App

Before turning your iPhone back on, you can use our app "Sound To Get Water Out of Phone". It's designed to remove water from the speakers using sound waves.

When you press "Start" button, the app will emit a specific sound frequency for 60 seconds, which helps to push the water out of your iPhone speakers.

Step 5: Dry The iPhone Again

After using the sound app, you might see droplets coming out of the speaker. Dry these off with a soft cloth and leave the iPhone in a dry, warm place for a few hours to let any residual moisture evaporate.

Step 6: Wait

Now comes the hardest part, waiting. Resist the temptation to power on the device too soon. Depending on how much water your iPhone was exposed to, it could take up to 48 hours to dry completely.

Step 7: Test Your iPhone

When you are confident that your iPhone is completely dry, you can power it on. Once it's on, test out your speakers.

You can do this by playing a song or a video, or even making a call and switching it to speaker mode.

If the speaker is still not functioning correctly

Even after following all these steps, if the speaker is not working as it should, it may be time to seek professional help.

Apple provides repair services for iPhones, including those damaged by water. However, keep in mind that water damage may not be covered under warranty, so this service might come at a cost.

To avoid such scenarios in the future, consider investing in a waterproof or water-resistant case for your iPhone. Also, be mindful of your phone's surroundings and try to keep it away from water sources.

Always remember, these steps are basic troubleshooting techniques and may not fix severe water damage.

Water and electronics don't mix well, so it's best to avoid situations where your iPhone might be exposed to water.
