Munich iPhones that were launched on the market by the spring of 2016 have no special and above all no certified protection against moisture, such as the iPhone 6, 6 Plus or 6S or the iPhone SE of the first generation, reports “Macwelt.de “. For all those who get into “water shortage” with such older iPhones, the specialist magazine Tipps has an emergency plan ready: 1. Immediately turn off the device and dry it from the outside. 2. Drying yes, but not in the microwave, in the oven or on the heater. The hair dryer is also not suitable for a rescue attempt. In the worst case, components can heat up too much and condensation forms in the device. 2. Instead, the device should be placed in an airtight bag filled with dry rice for about 72 hours. After that, you can try to turn on the iPhone again. According to the information, newer devices (from iPhone 7) can be used again immediately after a water accident. After all, if you gently knock out these phones with the side of the Lightning connector down on the hand, most of the water will come out. However, you should not charge the wet iPhone for five hours until the Lightning socket has dried. Whether new or older: if the iPhone is defective after a water accident, owners can not hope for a warranty, explains “Macwelt.de “. Apple itself expressly points out that liquid damage is not covered.
