How To Get Water Out From Your Apple Watch

Share This:

If you’ve ever been curious about the water drop icon that appears on your Apple Watch, you’re not alone. The water drop icon signifies that the Water Lock feature has been enabled. This feature is designed to protect your Apple Watch from damage if it comes into contact with water.

When Water Lock is turned on, it locks the watch’s screen and prevents accidental taps or touches from activating the watch functions. It also makes sure that any water that gets into the watch speaker does not interfere with sound quality.

So what happens if your Apple Watch gets wet? Fortunately, there are a few easy steps you can take to get the water out of your Apple Watch. First, make sure that Water Lock is turned off. To do this, press and hold down the side button until you see “Water Lock Off” appear on your screen.

Once Water Lock is off, your watch will emit a few short sounds at regular intervals which will help to expel any water that may have gotten into the speaker. This process can take up to 3 minutes, so make sure to wait until it is complete before continuing.

Once the sound emission has finished, use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe away any remaining water from around your Apple Watch’s speaker grille and all other openings in the case (such as for charging). You should also avoid using compressed air or using an electric blow dryer on your watch as this could cause further damage.

Finally, allow your Apple Watch to air dry completely before using it again. If possible, store it in a warm area so that any residual moisture can evaporate more quickly.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your Apple Watch stays safe from water damage and continues to work as intended.
