A site has appeared that uses sound to remove water from the phone's speakers

It happened to everyone. Dive into the pool with your phone in your pocket, rain caught you off guard or just fall down the toilet. Most modern phones are IP67 rated, but when it comes to total immersion, there are no guarantees. Therefore, today I will give you some useful tips based on my own bitter experience.

Did the phone fall into the water? Get him out ASAP!

The longer the phone is left in the water, the more water will reach the internal parts. Modern technologies provide the maximum compactness of the device, in which it will be difficult for water to penetrate into the holy of holies of the device and destroy it completely - but time is a key factor here.

What to do:

  • Turn off the device immediately,
  • Wipe it with a dry cloth or wipe using alcohol,
  • If possible, remove the battery, SIM card and memory card.

What not to do:

  • Blow dry,
  • Microwave,
  • Charge,
  • Blow into the speakers.

So how do you get water out of your phone, you ask? There are several effective ways.

Fix My Speakers website

Fix My Speakers is a free website that will help you fix water in your speakers. The service is a simple website with an audio player that plays high-pitched sounds that create directional pressure that pushes liquid droplets out of the speakers. The service works on any smartphone - just click on Play and watch what happens to the water in the speakers.

Of course, there are different ways to solve our problem, but Fix My Speakers is definitely the simplest and most effective. If after bathing your phone is still able to work with the browser, just go to the FixMySpeakers website: the gif below clearly explains how the service works.

The site is absolutely free and does not require registration, paid subscription or application download. It will work on both Android and iPhone. Go to the site and click on the speaker icon in the middle - an interval high-frequency sound will create pressure that will force all the moisture out of the speakers.

Repeat this action until you achieve the desired result.

Rice trick

Putting your phone in a container of dry rice will remove a lot of moisture. Sounds like dumb advice, but this method works because rice absorbs moisture very well. You can also try silica gel sachets, the kind you put in shoe boxes and medicine bottles, just put them next to your phone for a few days. [thirty] .
