Dry Your AirPods Immediately Dry them off immediately as best as you can, wiping away any visible moisture or droplets. Dry the AirPods case too if necessary. To avoid scratching the AirPods and the case, stick to a gentle microfiber cloth. Once your AirPods are dry, allow them time to air dry.
IP65 = Water resistant. “Protected against water jets from any angle” *Do NOT submerge IP65 LED lights, these are not waterproof. IP67 = Water resistant plus. “Protected against the events of temporary submersion (10 minutes)”*Do NOT submerge IP67 LED lights for extended periods, these are not waterproof.
IP68 simply extends the immersion features of IP67, allowing for deeper immersion beyond three feet or one meter. The highest rating one could possibly achieve is IP69K. This superior IP rating suggests complete protection from dust and protection from steam-jet cleaning (water temperatures up to 80 degrees Celsius).
Contrary to what many people believe, repair can succeed, even if the device has been totally submerged in water. If you take the correct steps immediately, there is a high chance that your iPhone can be brought back to life again.
The iPhone camera might stop working completely if liquid comes in contact with the camera. Even if the camera is working, it's very common for a water-damaged iPhone to take blurry photos. That happens when the lens becomes obstructed by water or the residue left behind when it evaporates.
According to the rating of iP67, the phone can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for a maximum of 30 minutes, but anything over that may cause permanent damage to the phone.
Sometimes, water affects your AirPods instantly; other times, it slowly rusts the circuits over weeks or months. Whatever happens, you'll need to pay out-of-pocket to replace your AirPods if they stop working. Apple doesn't cover water damage under the warranty, not even for water-resistant AirPods or AirPods Pro.
Although the original AirPods aren't waterproof, the AirPods Pro are water-resistant. The AirPods Pro have in ingress protection rating of IPX4. The 4 means that splashing from any direction won't harm your AirPods. However, they may get damaged if submerged in water for any amount of time.
IPx7, the water resistance rating, means the iPhone 7 can withstand immersion in water to one meter (3.3 feet) for 30 minutes, tested in laboratory conditions. IPx7 is the second-highest rating, below IP8, which indicates an ability to withstand long periods of immersion under pressure.
According to Apple, no iPhone should stay underwater for longer than 30 minutes. CNET did a lot of testing and believes that Apple is majorly downplaying the water-resistance of its phones, especially with iPhone 12. However, you do risk losing your warranty if you go against Apple's guidelines.
There are no waterproof AirPods, and only the AirPods (3rd generation) or AirPods Pro are water-resistant. You should still avoid getting water-resistant AirPods or AirPods Pro wet on purpose, but they should survive the odd splash.
If any water has accumulated in the ear tip, tap the AirPod on a soft, dry, lint-free cloth with the ear tip opening facing downward to remove. Pull off the ear tips from each AirPod and rinse the ear tips with water. Don't use soap or other household cleaners. Wipe the ear tips with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
If you accidentally drop your AirPods in water, Apple recommends using a microfiber towel to dry the earphones and charging case. Then, place both the earbuds and the charging case upside down on the cloth. The charging case should be open and facing down. Allow at least 4 hours before putting them to the test.
Rest them on a dry countertop or table and let them dry naturally. Be patient and don't use products to force dry them like a high temperature blow dryer, as this can overheat and permanently damage your AirPods.
AirPods 1: No water resistance None at all. Encounters with splashing water, like raindrops or sweat from exercise, can damage these AirPods. There are some AirPod accessories that can help waterproof your charging case, but not the AirPod earbuds themselves.
If your AirPods Pro or AirPods (3rd generation) are exposed to liquid through any of the scenarios above:
