Apple

took the baton and put an end to a historical myth surrounding mobile devices: whether

or not rice is useful

to save a wet cell phone.

While there are still testimonies on social networks from people who support it as an effective solution,

the apple company does not recommend it.

The creators of the

iPhone

and the brand new Vision Pro mixed reality headset did not escape the controversy over what to do when your smartphone

falls into

water or gets wet

.

Regarding the classic trick, technology sources indicate that

small pieces of the rice can sneak in

, which could spoil it.

In contrast, they propose another remedy.

The main danger lies in the

charger area

, as they clarified, since charging an iPhone that is still wet can cause

permanent damage

.

Luckily, when you try to do this, the software indicates if the input or cable is wet: in that case, disconnect the iPhone from the charger and it from the outlet.

Meanwhile, you can

gently tap the iPhone

with your hand with the charger entrance facing downwards to

release any excess water

in the area.

Then the device will have to be left in a

dry area

with some air.

After

at least 30 minutes

, you should try to charge the device.

If an

alert

appears , this means that there is still liquid in the connector or cable.

The iPhone should be left in a

dry, airy area for a day

.

It will probably take

24 hours to dry completely

, although during this period you can test if it charges well.

Aside from this, Apple recommends

trying another cable

to see if the problem lies at that point.

If the iPhone is apparently dry but does not charge;

That is, the warning does not appear, you just have to unplug the cable and the device and reconnect it to the electrical current.

There are

other methods

that Apple never recommends.

Al margen del "truco" del bol con arroz, tampoco resulta aconsejable secar el terminal con un secador de pelo o un aparato similar. Además, la manzana mordida aconseja no introducir objetos en el conector, como toallas o toallitas de papel.

Lo normal es no tener problemas con que un iPhone se moje. A partir del iPhone 7 varios modelos de Apple son resistentes a salpicaduras, agua y polvo, y se probaron bajo condiciones controladas en un laboratorio con una clasificación IP68 (polvo e inmersión completa y continua de agua) o IP67 (polvo e inmersión completa de agua) bajo la norma IEC 60529.

Un iPhone sumergible, el sueño de Apple

En este contexto, Apple registró a comienzos del 2020 una patente para crear un iPhone acuático. Bajo el número de patente 20200104021 detallaron un sistema que permitiría a los teléfonos de la manzanita funcionar bajo presiones suficientes como para ducharse con el smartphone.

En la solicitud no hay indicios ni una muestra del sistema físico que se emplearía para proteger los componentes internos del mismo, sino que se muestra la interfaz que iOS adoptaría para ser usado bajo el agua.

El sistema operativo de los iPhone y iPad detectaría potencialmente que se el dispositivo se encuentra bajo el agua y, entonces, cambiaría su interfaz gráfica a una más sencilla.
