    I pulled my iPhone out in light rain earlier, a sprinkle must have fell into the headphone jack. For the last hour my iPhone thought headphones were plugged in... I panicked and tried plugging in headphones etc, to try and remedy it but nothing worked...

    I sat it inside some rice for an hour along with one of those silica gel packets I found in a box and it works fine now... but I'm worried if this could be some permanent damage... the water sensor is still white though, so I'm glad about that.

    I think I will buy some plugs for the headphone socket now for when not in use...

    If the water sensor hasn't changed I think it's highly unlikely that water damaged your phone.

    For future reference, I recommend you purchase one of these (Headphone jack cap and a USB cap)

    Keeps moisture and pocket lint from building up and ruining your device. You can order them online really cheap or find a stand inside the mall that sells them (most/some do).

    I'd also suggest getting the plugs for your earphone and usb.
