iPhone 4 Water Damage Indicator Locations

by waterdamageexpert on May 2, 2012

If you’ve recently purchased an iPhone 4, you may be wondering just where the water damage indicator is located. Well, iPhones have a liquid contact indicator which activates when it comes into direct contact with a liquid. Usually this is going to be water.

Where is the location of an iPhone 4 Water Damage Indicator?

It is located in the bottom of the headphone jack. You can tell if the headphone-jack water damage indicator has been triggered by looking directly down into the headphone jack. A top tip is to use a lighted magnifying glass or angle the iPhone or iPod so light shines down into the headphone jack. At the base of the headphone jack, there will be a white or silver-colored dot, if has stayed dry.

The dot will become full or half red or pink when the dot has come in contact with water or a liquid containing water. To view the dock-connector indicator, use a lighted magnifying glass and hold the device so that you can view the center bottom of the dock-connector housing. A full or partial red dot will appear if the indicator has been triggered.

Sometimes it is not totally clear whether the indicator has actually been activated or not. If you have had this problem, the best advice is to contact AppleCare or an authorized iPhone service provider for assistance.

You might also want to check out an article I posted recently that explains exactly where to look for the water damage indicator on your Apple device. The article also provides advice on whether the damage may be covered by your Apple warranty.
