Fortunately, the iPhone offers an easy way to expel water from its speakers. And all you really need is a third-party solution via the Apple Shortcuts app.
The Water Eject shortcut produces a sound at a frequency that makes your iPhone’s speakers vibrate so that the water is forced out. This is important because even though your iPhone likely offers water resistance — the IP68 rating on current iPhone 13 models means your phone can withstand water up to 6 meters for 30 minutes — you’ll still need to wipe your iPhone after it’s submerged. Also, getting rid of residual moisture from various iPhone ports is not so easy. Essentially, this acronym helps ensure that any submersion, fall, or immersion in water survives unscathed.
You just need the Shortcuts app, which comes pre-installed on your current iPhones (if it’s not on your phone for any reason, head over to the App Store and download Shortcuts, which works on any device with iOS 12 or later).
Once you put the shortcuts in place, here’s everything you need to do to set up a shortcut that flushes water from your iPhone.
