Even though most mid-to-high-end phones come with some form of water resistance, none of them are guaranteed to protect your phone from water damage. Accidentally or coincidentally, it could happen to anyone. And so, if you are on that unfortunate day and you want to get the water out of your phone, let’s see how you can do that. Even if you want just to be prepared for that ill-fated day, this guide could prove useful.

- The headphones must not be connected to the device.
- Turn up the volume to the max.
- The speaker should be facing downwards.
