Apple’s Warning: Don’t Use Rice to Dry Your iPhone

Don’t dry your iPhone in a bag of rice, says Apple

Apple has issued a warning to iPhone users, advising them not to use a bag of rice to dry out their devices if they come into contact with water. This common DIY method has been debunked by Apple, as they state that it can actually cause more harm than good.

Instead, Apple recommends using a soft, lint-free cloth to gently dry off the exterior of the iPhone and then leaving it to air dry in a well-ventilated area. They also suggest using a fan to help speed up the drying process, but caution against using heat sources such as a hair dryer or microwave.

It’s important to note that if your iPhone does come into contact with water, you should not attempt to turn it on or charge it until it has fully dried out. This can help prevent further damage to the device.

So next time your iPhone gets wet, remember to resist the urge to reach for the rice and follow Apple’s recommendations for a safer and more effective drying method.
