    Hey guys,
    I've been reading up on some moisture sensor issues people are having. I just applied an invisibleshield to my iPhone 4 and my external water sensors (both) are still white. I wouldn't know about the internal ones though...
    Has anyone been denied warranty for an internal water sensor trip despite the external ones being white?

    Thanks.

    The only way you can be denied service for the internal sensors being tripped off is if you were to send your iPhone in to Apple Care for service. An Apple Store Genius employee wouldn't be able to see this.

    Can I ask why do you think that applying an invisibleshield would trip off the internal water sensors? (or even the external sensor)

    Thanks for the info.
    To install the IS you have to use water. Plus I installed it in a steamy bathroom because that helps with keeping dust out of the air so I've heard.

    I don't believe the iPhone 4 has internal moisture sensors like the previous models, I could be wrong...

    Some people reported that, but then others said it was wrong.

    My understanding is it takes more than one sensor to be tripped. I can't quite think of a situation where the inside sensors would be tripped and the outside ones would not.

    There was a guy that disassembled an i4 live on one of Leo Laporte's netcasts. The guy pointed out 4 sensors, one in the top, one in the bottom, and 2 inside.
