    My cousins little 3 year old was playing a game on my iPhone and spilled a can on the table and the lower half of my screen got drained in milk. Everything seems to be working fine but there's a random "plugged device not supported" pop up every now and then. Should I be concerned that it's gonna get worse?

    I got applecare+ but don't think it justifies paying 69€ for and wasting one of two replacements yet.

    Yes. You've likely damaged it, and the moisture sensors have been triggered so Apple will know it was your fault. You will have to pay for a replacement. Consider it an expensive lesson.

    k the pop up issue seems to have fixed itself over time and everything else is working fine too. The only annoying thing is that I probably won't be able to get a warranty case for anything now cuz the water damage indicator most likely has been triggered. So if anything ever happens I will most likely have to make a 69€ applecare+ case

    Correct. Any issues going forward can be indicative of the liquid damage that may not have seen immediate consequences.

    Also, warranty repairs (such as receiver, speaker, camera, etc) cannot be done if a device has the internal LCI triggered.

    Just wait until the milk that remains begins to spoil/smell. Ick.

    OP has Applecare + so he is fine, water and a working phone would be ok for me but milk? That's nasty, as a parent if young kids you grow sick of the smell of old milk.

    Not sure if it's any help, but I kept getting that message too even though nothing was plugged in. I just blew lots of compressed air through the Lightning port, and it works fine now.

    Think it must've been a bit of grit or lint lodged in there.
