How To Get Water Out Of Your Airpod

Are your AirPods wet? Did you accidentally drop them in the water or get caught in the rain? It’s a common problem for many AirPod users, and unfortunately, it can be difficult to get the water out.

But don’t worry! We’re here to help. In this blog post, we’ll give you all the details on how to dry out wet AirPods and offer some tips for preventing damage from water in the future.

The first thing you should do if your AirPods get wet is removed them from their charging case and turn them off. If they are still powered on, shut them off immediately. Once they are powered off, take a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe away any excess water that may be present on the outside of your AirPods.

Next, place the AirPods into a bowl of uncooked rice or silica gel packets overnight – these materials will absorb any remaining moisture inside your AirPods. Be sure to keep your AirPods in an open container so that air can circulate around them; keeping them sealed in an airtight container may cause additional damage due to trapped moisture.

After 24 hours or so have passed, take out your AirPods and check if they are still damp inside; if so, put them back into the bowl of rice or silica gel packets for another day before checking again. Once all moisture has been absorbed by the rice or silica gel packs, wipe away any remaining grains with a soft cloth and place the AirPods back into their charging case.

Finally, plug in your charging case to a power source and make sure both the case and individual earbuds are fully charged before using them again (you can check this by looking at the LED indicator lights). And voilà – you now have dried-out AirPods that are as good as new!

To prevent future damage from water getting into your AirPods, we recommend keeping them stored in their carrying case whenever not in use and avoiding situations where they could get wet (like swimming pools or extreme weather conditions). Of course, accidents can still happen – but following these tips should help protect your investment!

Dealing with Water in AirPods

If you get water in your AirPods, the first thing to do is to wipe them clean with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. This will help remove any excess moisture and debris from the surface of the AirPods. Once you have cleaned them, allow them to completely dry before using them or placing them in their charging case. If your AirPods remain wet for an extended period of time, it could cause damage to the device and result in unwanted audio issues. Therefore it is important to ensure that your AirPods are completely dry before using or placing them in their charging case.

Can AirPods Survive Water Damage?

Unfortunately, the answer is usually no. AirPods are not designed to be waterproof, and water damage can be irreversible. When AirPods come in contact with water, it can cause corrosion of the internal components and interfere with the sound quality. In some cases, the damage may be beyond repair even by an Apple technician. To be safe, it’s best to avoid exposing your AirPods to moisture as much as possible.

The Impact of Excessive Water on AirPods

AirPods are designed to be water and sweat resistant, however, they are not waterproof. If your AirPods come into contact with any amount of water, it is likely that they will be damaged. Even a small amount of water may cause irreparable harm due to the sensitive components inside. The best thing to do is to avoid getting your AirPods wet at all costs.


In conclusion, AirPods Pro and AirPods 3rd generation are not waterproof and can be damaged when exposed to liquid. However, wiping them clean with a dry cloth and allowing them to completely dry before using them or placing them in the charging case can help prevent further damage. Unfortunately, if your AirPods have been exposed to water or any other liquid, it’s important to note that water damage is often irreversible, and Apple technicians may not be able to fix them.
