Moisture in the iPhone can be a serious problem. Apple does not consider this case as a warranty. First of all, you need to dry the motherboard of the smartphone so that it does not cause rust or oxides. In attempts to save the device, users resort to various methods, sometimes even exotic ones. Some place the device in a bowl of rice, while others carefully treat the damaged areas with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. Nevertheless, there are technological ways to help the device.
Moisture can harm the dynamics of the device. If liquid gets there, it changes the sound to muffled. Water needs to be pushed out somehow.

IPhone Water Speaker App
The Sonic application can help, which allows you to generate sound waves of different frequencies. Users found that at a frequency of 165 Hz, the iPhone itself will literally begin to spit water out of the speaker. The application is convenient, and also free. Just download the Sonic app from this link. Open the application and set the frequency to 165 Hz (± 2 Hz) by moving your finger up and down the screen, then press the large Play button at the bottom of the screen. You will hear a characteristic sound (of the selected frequency), which will begin to push water out of the iPhone speakers.
But you can do even easier in this situation, without installing additional third-party utilities.

Siri team to push water out of iPhone speakers
One of the developers created a special team for Siri quick teams Water eject. Thanks to it, water can also be pushed out of the speaker. As a basis, the same sound frequency was used, which is used for similar purposes in the Apple Watch. There, sticks dipped in alcohol are unlikely to help get to the speakers.
Here’s how it works on the example of Apple smart watches:
Command Water eject after downloading will be saved in the application “Teams” for iOS, which will also require pre-installation. Siri will respond to the message and make the smartphone speaker make the necessary sounds. They will push the water out of the speaker. If you look closely at the smartphone at this moment, you will notice microscopic droplets flying away from the device.
More detailed instructions:
1. Follow the link to download the team and click Get a quick command.
2. In the pop-up window that appears, select Open.
3. In the program that opens Teams press the button Get a quick command, after which the team Water eject will be saved.
4. Click on the team card that appears Water eject to launch it.
5. In the window that appears, click Run quick command, and then Begin water ejection.
6. You will hear a sound at a frequency of 165 Hz, which will begin to expel water from the speakers of the iPhone.
One can doubt this method, but at least it is definitely safe. Working with sound waves of this frequency will not affect either the speaker itself or other components of the smartphone. Apple even endorsed this method by announcing it a couple of years ago at one of its presentations.
When using the command Water reject disconnect the headphones from your iPhone.
