In this his article I will explain if the iPhone XR is waterproof and what to do if it gets water damage.
Do AirPods Lose Battery When Not in Case?
The answer is yes, your AirPods will lose battery if they aren’t kept in their case, even if the case itself has been charged up and is waiting to be used again.
We all know how bad anyone’s day can be ruined if his/her iPhone gets water damaged. But since more and more iPhones are waterproof, you might be asking if the iPhone XR is also waterproof.
To cut right to the chase, NO, the iPhone XR is unfortunately not waterproof—but it will survive if you accidentally spill something on it. The iPhone XR can withstand a depth of about 3 feet (1 meter) for up to 30 minutes, according to Apple.
What If You Accidentally Spill Liquid On your iPhone XR?
Accidents happen. And when they do, we want you to be prepared for them, so you can keep using your iPhone without worrying about damaging its expensive internals.
With that said, If you notice that your device is getting wet, immediately power it off. Then remove any peripherals (cases, accessories) from your iPhone so that they don’t make contact with any exposed circuits or metal parts. And let your phone dry naturally.
Putting your iPhone in a bucket of rise can help, but be careful.
Some people may recommend putting it inside a bucket of rice overnight to help it dry out. And even thought it’s not a bad idea, there might be some risks involved—for example, rice is known to attract moisture over time, which could make things worse. Instead, we recommend just letting your device air-dry overnight before turning it back on again.
What If you drop your iPhone XR in the Pool?
If you drop your phone in a pool or in the tub, then you should immediately remove your phone from its case (if it has any) and place it into a container of rice, for at least 24 hours. The rice will absorb any moisture that may have gotten inside your device, helping the inside of your iPhone XR.
What you can do instead is to drain moisture from your iPhone by placing it so that the Lightning port is facing down and then tapping it. DO NOT poke at it with cotton swabs or other objects. It is also quicker to dry in a room with air-conditioning and using a fan will only make it go faster. In the time you take using a hair dryer, your hair could be dry.
Can You Swim with your iPhone XR?
The answer is NO. Apple also advises against swimming with your iPhone XR, since it’s not waterproof.
The iPhone XR is water, splash and dust resistant, but it’s not waterproof. Meaning that you can’t swim with it. With a rating of an IP 67 there is no way your iPhone XR will survive a swim session.
Can You Use the iPhone XR under the Shower?
Now we know that the iPhone XR is not waterproof, you might be asking whether you can use it under the shower, since it is water-resistant. And the answer is no.
There is no warranty if steam manages to get inside your iPhone.
To put it in Apple’s words, they warn against not bringing your iPhone XR with you into in the shower. They basically warn that there’s no warranty against a high-pressure or high-temperature water jet, or if steam manages to get inside your iPhone.
