Table of contents


Accidents happen, and if your iPhone has taken an unexpected dive into water, prompt action is crucial to prevent potential damage. Let’s explore various techniques to remove water from your iPhone, including a sound method that utilizes a frequency of 165 Hz. Additionally, we’ll discuss where you can find this unique audio, whether it’s from websites, YouTube, Spotify, or dedicated mobile apps.

  1. Rice Method:

    • Place your wet iPhone in a bowl or bag of uncooked rice.
    • Rice acts as a desiccant, absorbing moisture from the device.
    • Allow the iPhone to sit in the rice for at least 24-48 hours.
  2. Silica Gel Packs:

    • Similar to rice, silica gel packs are excellent at absorbing moisture.
    • Place your iPhone in a sealed bag with silica gel packs.
    • Check the iPhone after 24 hours, and repeat if necessary.
  3. Vacuum Method:

    • Use a vacuum cleaner to create a vacuum around the iPhone.
    • This method helps draw out water from the device.
    • Be cautious not to use too much suction, and avoid contact with the device.
  4. Air Compressor:

    • Use a can of compressed air or an air compressor.
    • Blow air into the ports and openings of the iPhone to remove water.
    • Hold the iPhone at different angles to ensure water is expelled.
  5. 165 Hz Sound Method:

    • Some studies suggest that sound waves at a frequency of 165 Hz can help remove water from electronic devices.
    • Find audio files or videos with a 165 Hz frequency on websites, YouTube, Spotify, or dedicated mobile apps.
  6. Just Let It Dry:

    • Sometimes, allowing your iPhone to air dry naturally is sufficient.
    • Place the iPhone in a dry and well-ventilated area.
    • Be patient and avoid attempting to power on the device until it’s thoroughly dry.
  7. Professional Assistance:

    • If all else fails, consider seeking professional help.
    • Visit an Apple Store or contact Apple Support for assistance.
    • Professionals have the tools and expertise to assess and repair water damage.

But honestly, often there is no need to panic. Modern iPhones are water resistant, so the issue should resolve itself with time.
