I don’t know about you guys, but I am that person who takes his smartphone to the shower to listen to my favorite songs. As a result, more often than not, my iPhone X gets splashes of water and the water, most of the time, goes inside the speaker grills at the bottom of the device. So, looking for a solution to get the water out of the speaker grills, I found this nifty Siri shortcut that draws the water out from the speaker using very low-frequency sound.

  1. Can’t get it to work on iOS 15, with this error: “Water Eject” Can’t Be Opened. Shortcuts failed to verify this shortcut. There also isn’t a Allow Untrusted Shortcuts setting anymore, and the InstaSave shortcut installs without issue. iOS growing pains!
