    Water splashed on my mute switch on my iPhone X just a little bit. Will it get inside the iPhone? And will it dry up and not mess anything up?

    The iPhone X is water resistant as you know. But being such a small area around the mute switch, I doubt it would be a problem reaching internally, being It just splashed on the mute switch area, assuming that you also dried it thoroughly.

    Yeah I blew the water out of it. Kind of hard to get anything in there to dry it up.

    It should be fine but the resistance rating is not a guarantee. I've been getting iPhones wet in small doses accidentally since the beginning with no ill effects.

    Did you blow on it yourself, or did you use compressed air?
    Blowing with your mouth is prolly fine, but using compressed air might force it into places it shouldn't be
    Chances are slim, but I would avoid using compressed air and let it dry out naturally

    I stubbed my toe this morning and knocked my X off the dresser

    I doubt that much water got in there if it's 'kind a hard' to even absorb any water in the first place. Even so, a microfiber cloth might reach in there to absorb anything.

    The first thing I did after getting the 7 Plus last year and this years iPhone X is put them under the tap water. Don’t worry you’ll be fine :)

    Thanks man. Just didn’t want to mess this phone up. Best phone I have had. I love it. All besides Face ID. That really the only thing I hate about it.

    Having done stuff like that many times on many iPhones I think you will be good to go.

    I couldn’t agree more. I really love this phone. Perfect balance between big screen and being easy to hold. I also kinda hate Face ID but I’m learning to live with it.

    Although I would never recommend doing this intentionally, the iPhone X is rated to withstand 30 minutes fully submerged in up to 1 meter of water. A splash on your mute switch should do absolutely no harm to your phone.
