In the event of a spill, rinse the affected area with tap water, then wipe off your iPhone and dry it.
To prevent liquid damage, avoid these:
- Swimming or bathing with your iPhone
- Exposing your iPhone to pressurised water or high-velocity water, such as when showering, water skiing, wakeboarding, surfing, jet skiing and so on
- Using your iPhone in a sauna or steam room
- Intentionally submerging your iPhone in water
- Operating your iPhone outside of the suggested temperature ranges or in extremely humid conditions
- Dropping your iPhone or subjecting it to other impacts
- Disassembling your iPhone, including removing screws
Minimise exposing your iPhone to soap, detergent, acids or acidic foods and any liquids — for example, perfume, insect repellent, lotions, sunscreen, oil, adhesive remover, hair dye and solvents. If your iPhone comes into contact with any of these substances, follow the instructions to clean your iPhone.
What should I do if my iPhone gets wet?
- If a liquid other than water splashes on your iPhone, rinse the affected area with tap water.
- Wipe off your iPhone with a soft, lint-free cloth — for example, a lens cloth.
Make sure that your iPhone is dry before opening the SIM tray.
To dry your iPhone, tap it gently against your hand with the Lightning connector facing down to remove excess liquid. Leave your iPhone in a dry area with some airflow. Placing your iPhone in front of a fan blowing cool air directly into the Lightning connector might help the drying process.
Don't dry your iPhone using an external heat source or insert a foreign object, such as a cotton swab or a paper towel, into the Lightning connector.
If my iPhone gets wet, can I charge it?
If your iPhone has been exposed to liquid, unplug all cables and do not charge your device until it’s completely dry. Using accessories or charging when wet might damage your iPhone. Allow at least five hours before charging with a Lightning cable or connecting a Lightning accessory.
For wireless charging, wipe off your iPhone with a soft, lint-free cloth — for example, a lens cloth. Make sure that your iPhone is dry before you place it on a compatible wireless charging mat.
What should I do if my iPhone got wet and now its speaker sounds muffled?
Check to see if there is water in the microphone or speaker: Place your iPhone, speaker-side down, on a lint-free cloth and see if water drips out. Water in the port might degrade speaker or microphone performance until it completely evaporates. Dry your iPhone using the previous instructions.
What should I do if dust gets on my iPhone?
If dust or dirt gets on your iPhone, wipe it off with a soft, lint-free cloth — for example, a lens cloth. Make sure that your iPhone is free of dust before opening the SIM tray. Don't use cleaning products or compressed air.
