Got my iPhone 11 wet when splashed, not being concerned as Apple ad below says it is safe;
Plugged it in to charge. Green charge light came on momentarily, then message popped up that moisture was detected in the charging port.
My experience with electricity is that even a momentary connection can wreck havoc with devices, a good example being the “w” on a keyboard not working after a static discharge, or better yet, a discharge on a spacecraft when powering on a unit, killing that unit.
Ok, no problem. Even if it had wiped out the iPhone, Apple covers it, right?
Read the warranty!!
Not covered if;
(d) to damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, fire, liquid contact, earthquake or other external cause;
Luckily, phone was ok after port dried out. Be aware advice is not try to dry the moisture or to use heat.
