Introduction: how to get water out of charging port
If you’ve ever been caught in the rain with your iPhone in your hand, you know the sinking feeling of watching water seep into the charging port. Or maybe you accidentally dropped your phone in the sink or toilet. In any case, here’s how to get water out of the charging port and save your device.
The first thing to do is remove the battery if possible. If you can’t remove the battery, don’t worry, we’ll get to that later. Next, use a small metal object like a paperclip or a toothpick to gently poke around inside of the charging port. You’re trying to dislodge any water that may be trapped inside. Be careful not to damage anything else inside the phone while you’re doing this.
Once you’ve poked around a bit, use a dry cloth or tissue to gently wipe away any remaining moisture.
What you’ll need: a toothpick or paper clip
If your iPhone or iPad starts acting up and won’t charge, it might have water in the charging port. You can try to get the water out with a toothpick or paper clip, but be careful not to damage the port.
First, try using a toothpick. gently insert the toothpick into the charging port and wiggle it around. If there’s water in there, you should see it start coming out.
If the water doesn’t come out with the toothpick, try using a paper clip. Bend the paper clip into a U-shape and insert it into the port. Again, wiggle it around until you see the water start coming out.
Once all of the water is out, use a dry cloth to clean off any debris that might be in there. Then try charging your device again.
The process: insert toothpick or paper clip and wiggle around
If your iPhone is having water problems, it’s possible to fix it by yourself if you have a toothpick or paper clip. The charging port can get clogged with water and stop working, but you can clear it out by using one of these tools. Stick the toothpick or paper clip into the port and wiggle around until the water comes out. It might take a few tries, but eventually you should be able to get the water out. Once the port is cleared, try charging your phone again. If it still doesn’t work, you might need to take it to a professional to get it fixed.
