Water Damage Sensor for iPhone


Water damage can happen to anyone. Any liquid can wreck havoc on your electronics and potentially send them to an early watery grave. If your phone has taken a dive and doesn’t seem to be working, you’re probably wondering what your options are.

Water Damage Sensors
All smartphones have water damage sensors spread throughout the inside of them. The purpose of these sensors is to determine if water or any liquid has come in contact with the delicate hardware of the phone.

As an example, let’s look at the water damage sensors on the iPhone 6 as shown above.

The water damage sensors in the iPhone are small adhesive pads that start out white, but turn irreversibly red or pink when exposed to dangerous levels of moisture. The sensors help technicians and providers determine if the iPhone was exposed to liquid before or after it was manufactured. Usually warranties do not cover water damage so the presence of moisture or a tripped sensor will inhibit your ability to have the device serviced.

The image below shows the visible upper sensor on the logic board of the iPhone 6. In the first picture it is tripped and fully red and in the second picture it is white and untripped.

When a device comes into contact with water,  an electrical short circuit happens when electrical current is allowed to travel along an unplanned path.

iPhone logic boards have thousands of these complex circuits and even one droplet of water can have a massive effect your phone’s functionality. With thousands of possible short circuits, damage caused by water in an iPhone can be completely unpredictable. It is often impossible to tell exactly what damage has been done on the phone without an in-depth diagnosis.
