Is it okay to clean the speakers with a (kind of) damp Q-tip?

    That is what I use to clean the speakers. Works too. But will this cause any damage in the long run?


    The water sensor in the headphones is still pure white same with the bottom one.

    Also the audio is still good, ect


    Just worried because a little water kinda got on the side of phone (not into anything)

    Use rubbing alcohol, not water. Water is corrosive.

    You're most likely fine, better to be safe than sorry though.

    then don't clean it

    geesh, its a phone, not a museum piece, same goes for the 30 pin adapter. Avoid using any water or solvents, compressed air is superior and safer
