Apple advises against using rice to dry wet iPhones

Recommended Posts



Apple has recently made waves with a surprising revelation. The company has issued guidance advising against the age-old practice of using rice to dry wet iPhones. This advice, contrary to popular belief, has sparked a flurry of online discussions and is currently trending.


The common belief among many iPhone users has been that placing a wet iPhone in a bag of rice can help absorb the moisture and save the device. However, Apple’s new guidance warns that this method could potentially cause more harm than good. The company states that small particles of rice could damage the iPhone, and the starch from the rice could clog the device’s small crevices.


Instead of resorting to the rice method, Apple recommends a gentler approach. If an iPhone gets wet, the company advises users to tap the device gently against their hand with the connector facing down to dislodge any liquid. After this, the iPhone should be left in an open, dry space with decent airflow for at least 30 minutes. If the Liquid Detection Alert persists, Apple suggests allowing up to 24 hours for the device to fully dry.


This new guidance from Apple has certainly stirred the pot in the tech community, with many users questioning the effectiveness of the rice method they’ve been using for years. As the conversation continues to evolve, it’s clear that the focus is shifting towards finding the most effective ways to handle wet iPhones.


What are your thoughts on Apple’s new guidance?
