How to repair “Liquid Detected in USB-C Connector” Alert on iPhone

Encountering a ‘Liquid Detected’ alert when charging your iPhone? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Follow these steps to get your iPhone charging normally again.

1- Let the Lightning or USB-C port dry.

It’s safer to presume that the “Liquid Detected” alert is true, even if you are holding a dry iPhone in your hands. Remember that although certain iPhone models are water-resistant, not all iPhone models are.
It is therefore very likely that water entered the charging port of your iPhone if you recently submerged it in water or went swimming with it. Drying out your device’s charging port is the answer to this.
However, if you are certain that your iPhone has not come into contact with water over the previous few weeks, the “Liquid Detected” notification may just be a malfunction. Let’s go to the other alternatives in that scenario.

2- Examine the charging cable for issues.

The next step is to take out the accessory and put the Lightning or USB-C cord back into the charging port in case it wasn’t detected correctly.
Try a new Lightning or USB-C cable if that doesn’t work. If the warning appears exclusively when using a specific cable, you may be certain that the cable—and not your iPhone—is the problem.

3- Clear the Charging Port on Your iPhone

Issues with charging may also arise if debris becomes lodged in the Lightning or USB-C port of your iPhone. Try carefully cleaning the charging port on your iPhone with the SIM-eject tool to see if that fixes the “Liquid Detected” indication.
When cleaning your iPhone, avoid using compressed air or immediately sprinkling cleaning solutions on it.

4. Restart Your iPhone

5. Update Your iPhone

Go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iPhone to check if an iOS update is available.

    You shouldn’t try to charge your iPhone using a cable charger if you know it’s still wet since it could break it irreversibly. Wireless charging is a safer option, but make sure the device is completely dry before proceeding.
