Apple Warns Users Not Put Wet Devices In Rice

Apple has recently warned against using a bag of rice to dry wet devices, emphasizing the potential risk of “allowing small particles of rice to damage your iPhone.”

Furthermore, the company warns against other hacks, such as using an external heat source or inserting a cotton swab, as they may cause additional damage to the device.

Repair experts suggest that air-drying an iPhone on a counter is quicker than using rice.  Swift action is essential to prevent water damage to the phone’s internal electronics.

Instead of opting for rice, Apple offers users an alternative solution for wet iPhones or charging connectors, with specific recommendations if the latter triggers an alert and disables charging.

  • Unplug the cable from your iPhone and unplug the other end of the cable from the power adapter or accessory. Don’t plug the cable in again until your iPhone and the cable are completely dry.
  • Tap your iPhone gently against your hand with the connector facing down to remove excess liquid. Leave your iPhone in a dry area with some airflow.
  • After at least 30 minutes, try charging with a Lightning or USB-C cable or connecting an accessory.
  • If you see the alert again, there is still liquid in the connector or under the pins of your cable. Leave your iPhone in a dry area with some airflow for up to a day. You can try again to charge or connect an accessory throughout this period. It might take up to 24 hours to fully dry.
  • If your phone has dried out but still isn’t charging, unplug the cable from the adapter and unplug the adapter from the wall (if possible), and then connect them again.
