    Use This Shortcut to Expel Water From Your iPhone
    Your iPhone is water-resistant, and its IP68 rating means it can survive a swim in up to six meters of water for as long as 30 minutes and things should still be fine. In theory. (This doesn’t mean you should use your phone as an underwater camera; if water does make its way inside, you’ll still face a huge repair bill or be stuck with a bricked phone.) But even if it will ultimately survive a drop into the drink, when you first fish it out, some moisture might still remain in the sp
