How to Eject Water from your iPhone Using Siri Shortcut
If you drop your iPhone in water, water drops enter into speaker grills, charging port, and earpiece. In such cases, people usually turn off the phone and use a blower to dry the phone. Starting iPhone 7, Apple has started making water-resistant as the phone comes with IP68 certification. iPhone X and older till iPhone 7 were IP67 certified. IP68 and IP67 confirm that the phone is water-resistant but doesn’t guarantee waterproof. So, you should still take care of your phone. Even if iPhone comes with an IP68 rating, water damage won’t be covered under Apple’s warranty.

In this article, I will tell you how to install and use that Siri shortcut to draw water out of your iPhone.
