AirPods Wireless headphones were a great innovation and an alternative to traditional wired headphones, which eliminated the headphone port in smartphones.

What do you do when the AirPods fall into the water?

What do you do when your wireless headphones or AirPods fall in the water?
However, the small size of these headphones makes them fragile and more prone to damage when dropped on the ground or dropped in water.
Dropping AirPods in water is a common accident that may cause damage and loss of the headphones. Here in this article we will show you some steps that can be considered as first aid to avoid damage and reduce water damage on the speakers as much as possible.

Are Apple AirPods waterproof?

So far, Apple has released five versions of AirPods. Unfortunately, first-generation and second-generation AirPods as well as AirPods Max are not water- or sweat-resistant.
However, the third generation AirPods 3 as well as AirPods Pro are IPX4 water and sweat resistant. Most likely, future versions will also be for better protection from water and sweat.
The IPX4 standard means that the headphones are specifically resistant to splashes and sweat, and maybe even raindrops. This doesn't mean you can shower with headphones or take them to the pool. The headphones warranty does not include any water damage.

Things not to do when AirPods fall in water

-Do not immediately put the earphones into the charging case.
-The headphones do not connect to any devices, and if they are connected, unplug them immediately.
-Don't shake the speakers too hard to try to get the water out. This may backfire.
-Do not use a hair dryer to dry the headphones.
Don't use any sharp objects to try to get the water out.
What you should do after removing the AirPods from the water

There are bags called silica gel that you can buy at the store that help absorb moisture.

  1. Dry the headphones using a dry cloth or soft tissue.
  2. If the charging case has also fallen into the water, be sure to dry it with a cotton swab.
  3. Open the charging case and place it upside down for better drying as shown in the attached picture.
  4. Place the headphones and the case in front of a fan or in a dry room.
  5. There are bags called silica gel that you can buy at the store that help absorb moisture.



Try to turn on the headphones later, if it does not work, you can replace the damaged headphones only from Apple or one of its official dealers, because repairing damaged headphones is often not possible.
The saying goes that prevention is always better than cure, so it is best to avoid exposing your headphones to water as much as possible. Don't wear the headphones in heavy rain, and if you sweat a lot while working out, it's best to buy a sweat-resistant version.
A common scenario that happens again and again is washing headphones with clothes in home washers and dryers, so always make sure to empty all the contents of your pocket before washing your clothes. A traditional tip that's okay to remember.
