Apple Provides Crucial Guidance for Dealing with a Wet iPhone: Why Putting it in Rice May Not Be the Best Solution

  • Apple warns against putting a wet iPhone in rice, saying it could allow rice particles to damage the device
  • Instead of rice, Apple recommends gently tapping the iPhone against your hand with the connector facing down to remove liquid
  • The iPhone should then be left in a dry area with airflow for at least 30 minutes
  • After 30 minutes, try charging the device or connecting an accessory to see if a warning still appears
  • If the warning still appears, there is still liquid inside and the iPhone needs more time to dry fully
  • Apple released the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro in September 2023 running the latest iOS 17 operating system
