Simple Tricks For How to Eject Water From iPhone Speaker

5 Ways to Eject Water From Your iPhone Speaker At Home

If you accidentally dropped your iPhone into the water or intentionally went to the water with it, sound issues with the speakers might occur. If the sound appears muffled, we recommend ejecting the water from the iPhone speaker.


There are a couple of ways you can get rid of water from your speaker. All of them work the same way. A specific frequency sound is played through the speaker, and it forces the water out. You can eject the water from the speaker using a Siri Water Eject shortcut, a third-party app, or a website.

These methods will play a sound, and the vibration from the sound will push out water from the speaker. Or you can use more primitive methods like putting your iPhone into rice or silica gel or evaporate the water with a fan or a blower.

Evaporate Water From Your iPhone Speaker By Using a Fan or a Blower

If the steps above seem too difficult or you just don't want to use them, the other option is to try and evaporate water from your iPhone speaker with a fan or a blower. This method is recommended by Apple as well, so you don't need to worry about damaging your device. But make sure not to use the full heat of the fan. Nowadays, most of them have a low heat mode.

Eject Water From Your iPhone Speaker With Silica Gel or Rice

You can also try to get the water out of your iPhone speaker by putting it in a blow full of unboiled dry rice or a few silica gel packets. The difference between rice and silica is that with rice, it will take much longer than with silica beads. You'll have to leave your device for at least 24 hours in rice.

If none of the methods worked or you don't want to try them yourself, you can take it to the Apple store or an authorized service to get it checked out.

We hope you managed to find the information you were looking for and successfully removed water from your iPhone speakers.
