How to Eject Water from Your iPhone Using Siri Shortcuts (2024)

In Short
  • Unlike the Apple Watch, iPhones do not offer any feature to eject water but there's a Siri Shortcut that can help you.
  • The Siri Shortcut ejects water from your iPhone by playing a low-frequency sound for 10 seconds that pushes out water from the speaker grills.
  • While a Siri Shortcut does help in eliminating water from your iPhone, seeking professional help is always advised.

I don’t know about you guys, but I usually take my iPhone to the shower to listen to my favorite songs. As a result, more often than not, my iPhone 15 Pro Max gets splashes of water, and the water, most of the time, goes inside the speaker grills at the bottom of the device. And while there’s a built-in water eject feature in Apple Watch, it’s missing on the iPhone. So, if you’re looking for a solution to get the water out of your iPhone’s speaker grills, I found this nifty Siri shortcut that pushes the water out from the speaker using very low-frequency sound.

Dubbed “Water Eject”, this useful Siri shortcut has been a smartphone-saver for me in the past few days, and here’s how you can use it.

  • Tap this link using your iPhone to open up the “Water Eject” Siri shortcut.
  • Tap the Add Shortcut button at the bottom to add the Shortcut to your Shortcut library, then tap on Done at the top right to complete the process.

Note: This is an untrusted shortcut, so you will need to grant it all the permissions it asks for.

  • Once you have added the Water Eject Shortcut to your shortcut library, invoke Siri on your iPhone and ask “Water Eject.”
  • Here, tap the Start button in the pop-up menu, then select the Intensity Level. In our case, we select the 3rd level.
  • Now, wait for it to complete the process. It uses low-frequency sound to push water out of your iPhone.
  • Upon completion, the Siri shortcut turns down the volume of the device to fifty percent and delivers a notification that says liquid has been successfully ejected from your iPhone.

Now, since this is a Siri shortcut, you can add it to your home screen to access it more easily. Moreover, apart from working on all iPhone models that support Siri shortcuts, the said tool also works with iPads running on the latest available software.

So that’s how you can easily eject water from your iPhone. While it’s surprising that Apple doesn’t offer a built-in feature to do this on iPhone, it’s great to have a Siri Shortcut that can solve the problem. That said, if the shortcut isn’t cutting it for you, there are a bunch of other methods to remove water from iPhone that you can try as well.

  • Holy crap!! I had an issue with my XS, bottom speaker went wonky and grainy (distortion kinda), I imaged I blew my driver and thought “there goes $20”. I was hoping it was water or maybe dirt or a strand of dog hair, cause he sleeps on my bed. Used it once and it’s not 100% but suffice to say its at least 80% of what it used to be, I’m shocked👏🏻👏🏻

  • Worked for me. Thank you.
    Funcionou, tentei de tudo antes disso. Mas bastou ativar o comando que carregou

  • I believe the best app to remove water from speakers is Clear Wave. You can use it with iPhone and Android.

  • Hi, I found an water eject application that removes water from your speaker is available in the app store
    – Clear Wave

  • 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!
