    I know the headphone jack, but the other ones??? I assume in the lightening connector area.

    No water damage to my phone, just curious where they are!

    Anyone see any plugs or caps for the ports yet?

    Thanks

    There's one under the LCD panel on the right side of the phone.

    Taken from iFixit's teardown:

    I was at the apple store in philadelphia on saturday getting my phone inspected for Applecare+, the guy took his iphone out and shined a light into the connector, i was like what are you doing? He said checking for water damage.

    Same thing happened to me when I went to the apple store. They certainly do check the lightning port for the water indicator.

    I don't see a water sensor in my lightning port.
