    hey all, sorry if this is a silly question, however
    i am not sure if a little droplet of water has gone through my headphonejack. How will I know if it has. I mean I wiped a bit of water near the top of the jack. It got there accidently. My phone is working 100 % though. Will i know straight away if its water damaged?



    I have an iphone 4s.

    Hi abz1981,
    Likely you have nothing to worry about. But if it makes you feel better, there is a liquid/moisture sensor at the bottom of the headphone jack. Use a flashlight and see if it's tripped. If its white, you're good to go. It will be pink if it got wet.
