    So I just accidentally dropped my 7 in zink, it was in for almost 15 seconds. I can't detect any damage, but I've seen videos where water eventually gets into the display after some time. Should I be worried?

    The iPhone 7 can survive 30 minutes a meter deep. Your phone went in a 7 inch sink for 15 seconds.

    It's fine. Just wipe it off and keep using.

    Dry it off well and make sure the lightning port is dried out before charging. It's fine.

    Dropped your iPhone in zinc?

    Wow it has some good awesome protection when liquid zinc is 800+ degrees Celsius.

    Sorry I had to, I work in a galvanization plant.

    ;)

    Open a bag of rice, cook it and eat it as your next meal. You need it more than your iPhone.

    It really does not matter for the port. You can connect it underwater and it will still charge as normal.

    Don't use it for a while and put it in front of a cool fan

    I think the real reason is that you wanted to test your new iphone water resistance. and justify your purchase?

    I would hope the OP and anyone else viewing your post would not take you seriously. Did you really just suggest for someone to try plugging in their iPhone while it is underwater? If a child saw that post, it could possible kill them. You're an idiot.

    After getting soaked like that? iPhone needs a beer. Dump some beer into the lightning port.

    Is this post for real? The iPhone 7 and 7+ are being marketed as WATER RESISTANT. I'm not really sure why anyone would be worried about dropping a WATER RESISTANT phone in the sink for 15 seconds. SMH

    Where is the water indicator in the ip7? is it covered up with the water resistant stuff? (other than that) I'm sure your iphone is fine!
