How to eject water from your iPhone speakers using this shortcut

Holding an iPhone under water

Have you ever accidentally dropped your iPhone in water and wondered how to get rid of the water from inside the speaker?

Even if your iPhone comes with an IP rating, it doesn't mean water can't get stuck in places. When water enters through the speaker grills on an iPhone, it'll cause the audio to muffle. This is obviously not something you want.

As it turns out, there are simple ways to eject water from the iPhone speakers. You can either use a Siri Shortcut, or try out an app or a website to push out the liquid.

In this article, we'll show you how to get the water out of your iPhone speakers.

As much as I love the convenience wireless audio transmission for these purposes, one thing that really annoys me is the pecking and popping of my keyboard on these Bluetooth devices when I’m typing a text message reply or searching the web.

As per the announcement on the LG website, the new soundbars deliver a premium audio experience and convenient control along with eco-consciousness designs and packaging.

“The new lineup offers high-quality audio, easy connectivity, smart functionality and stylish aesthetics with a modern look designed to complement LG’s stunning TVs and works well with any décor,” the company notes.

The 2021 lineup is compatible with Siri, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa for hands-free voice and playback control. With AirPlay 2, Apple customers can stream, control and share their favorite music and other content directly from their iPhone, iPad or Mac.

The new soundbars also support LG TV’s AI Sound Pro feature.

Audio from the TV is played through the soundbar via TV Sound Mode Share, delivering the superior audio processing power of AI Sound Pro on the more capable speakers of the new soundbars. LG’s soundbars now offer all of the same sound modes as its latest TVs, allowing users to easily switch between the soundbar and the TV using the TV remote.

Other notable features of the new 2021 LG soundbar lineup include support for the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround audio formats, in addition to Dolby Vision compatibility via 4K pass-through, Meridian Audio tuning and the latest Meridian Horizon technology.

Some of the models are Hi-Res Audio certified for lossless playback at 24-bit/96kHz.

Compared to the original version, AirPlay 2 improves buffering while adding support for multi-room audio and streaming audio to stereo speakers. AirPlay is accessible on iOS, iPadOS and macOS devices through the Control Center, the Home app and the Siri assistant.
