The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the latest and greatest iteration of Apple’s flagship smartphone. It boasts a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display, 5G support, and an A14 Bionic chip for faster performance than ever before. But all that power isn’t worth much if your phone gets wet. That’s why the iPhone 12 Pro Max has something called Water Eject built in to help you safely remove water from your device.

Water Eject is a feature that allows you to quickly and safely remove water from your iPhone 12 Pro Max without having to take it apart or use any additional tools or materials. To use it, simply press and hold the Volume Up button and the Power button simultaneously until you see the Water Eject menu on the screen. From there, tap Begin Water Ejection to start the process of removing any water that may have gotten inside your device.

It’s important to remember that Water Eject is designed only for removing small amounts of liquid from your phone, not for repairing any damage caused by water. If you’ve dropped your phone in a pool or had some other type of significant liquid exposure, it’s best to take it to an authorized Apple service provider for repair or replacement right away.

Overall, Water Eject is a great feature to have on your iPhone 12 Pro Max if you ever find yourself in a situation where your device has been exposed to liquid. With just a few taps of the Power and Volume Up buttons, you can quickly start removing any excess moisture from within its components so that your phone remains safe and functional for as long as possible.

Ejecting Water from an iPhone 12 Pro Max

To eject water from your iPhone 12 Pro Max, start by saying “Hey Siri, water eject” and then tap Begin Water Ejection in the menu that appears. This will activate a series of vibrations that will help remove any water in your device’s speakers, ports, and other components. Wait for about 30 to 40 seconds for the process to complete and then check if the water has been successfully removed. If not, repeat the process again until it is successful.

Which iPhone Has Water Ejection Capabilities?

The Water Eject feature is available on any iPhone that supports the Shortcuts app, which means any iPhone running iOS 14 or newer. This includes the iPhone 12, 11, SE (2nd generation), XS, XR, 8, and 7 models.

Waterproof Capabilities of the iPhone 12 Pro Max

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is designed to be highly water-resistant, but it is not completely waterproof. It has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 68, which means it is dust-proof and can survive underwater for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 6 meters. This rating means that the phone can handle splashes and spills, and even a quick dip in a pool or lake, without damage. However, it is not recommended that you intentionally submerge your device in water as this could cause permanent damage.
