I get it, newer iPhones are far more resistant against water and more than the older ones. However, splashes of water or say you intentionally or mistakenly dropped your iPhone in water, could help in a disaster in some cases.
In most cases, water simply gushes out from whenever it has entered thanks to the gaskets and rubber sealing inside, however, a droplet stuck in the speaker grill may not damage it but it will produce a dampened sound till it is out.
The question is, how do you eject water from an iPhone. Turns out there is plenty of water you can do that includes using Siri, a website, and an app among others. Read along to know about all the methods available.
How To Eject Water From An iPhone?
These are some of the ways you can eject water from an iPhone. Of course, the result might differ based on the phone you are using, the severity of splash or water it has struggled through, and other factors.
Method #1: Using Fix My Speaker (the website)
This is a pretty handy feature on an iPhone that uses a low frequency to push water out of the speaker grille. This is perhaps one of the best methods to eject water out of your iPhone to subdue a muffled or dampened speaker. Here’s how it works.
- Open Safari and go to www.fixmyspeakers.com website.
- Tap on the white pill-shaped button to activate the blower.
- Although it looks like there’s a fan blowing air, it is the low frequency that triggers similar action and that is what’s happening at the moment.
- It will gush out the water or any fluid out of the speaker preventing the water damage it would have created.
Method #2: Using iOS Shortcut
- Enable “Allow untrusted shortcuts” within Settings >> Shortcuts to begin with.
- Next up, you are required to download Water Eject from this link where you need to tap on “Get Shortcut”.
- Next, hit the “Add Shortcut” button under the “Water Eject” shortcut on the screen.
- Next, navigate to the “My Shortcuts” section and launch “Water Eject”.
- On the pop-up menu, select “Start”, set the intensity levels and that should initiate the water removal process.
- Note that you can add the shortcut to the home screen for future use if any.
Method #3: Using Online Tone Generator
This is another website that utilizes low-frequency sound. You can go to the Online Tone Generator website, tweak the frequency of sound and other settings to get a perfect frequency setting to eject water out of your iPhone.
You will have to change the frequency to find the one that actually does the trick so that’s something of a task.
Method #4: Using Blower (the app)
Blower on the App Store is currently at #4 position in the Entertainment category (I don’t know why) but you can use it to eject water out of your iPhone.
As said, the app uses the same principles of buzzing a low-frequency sound that mimics how a fan would blow from inside the chassis ejecting the water out of your phone. The app has an interface with a blower on it with the intensity meter but that’s just the UI element.
The work is actually done by the low-frequency sound that pushes the water droplets and moisture out. In fact, you can use it to blow candles up close or you can use various other modes like Gun mode, Beat mode, etc.
Method #5: Using Sonic
Sonic is another app available on the App Store that generates a sine wave tone that helps eject water out of the speaker grille and other openings.
You can control the frequency of the sound produced precisely between 0Hz to 25kHz. It can be used across Apple Watch as well. It can broadcast sound over AirPlay and works in the background as well. You can alter the frequency of the sound and other settings as well.

These were some of the methods that you can use to gush out the water stuck in the speaker grille and elsewhere, recovering it from any water damage.
