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.

This is really good to know, thank you for this
