Have you ever used your iPhone while taking a bath? In addition, the season is approaching where iphones will be used near the water such as pools.
Moisture or sweat can damage your iPhone

If you submerge it, don’t panic
If your iPhone is submerged in water, you may be in a panic, but please try the following.
-If the power is on, turn it off immediately. Turning off the power reduces the possibility of malfunction.
・Remove the protective cover or protective case if attached. Just as a precaution, remove the protective film. Water may have entered between the covers and case. If possible, do not let water touch your iPhone.
-Wipe off the water on the iPhone. Wipe off any water on the surface with a handkerchief, towel, tissue, etc. Also, use a cotton swab to wipe off any water that may have entered the charging port or other gaps.
-Please dry your iPhone. You can dry it by placing it in a well-ventilated place, or putting it in a closed container or bag together with a desiccant.
Never do this!
Then, if your iPhone is submerged, you should never do it.
・Shake iPhone to try to drain water. Water will spread and cause malfunction.
- Turn on the power. Even if it seems to move, turning on the power may cause a short circuit due to moisture remaining inside and cause a malfunction.
・Connect to a charger. Just like turning on the power, it may cause a short circuit due to internal moisture, which may cause a malfunction.
