Apple patent suggests that iPhone will get water ejection system similar to Apple Watch


The Apple Watch Series 2 was the first model to be completely waterproof and Apple introduced an important feature to protect internal components. As you may know, the Apple Watch has a water-ejection system, in which the speaker drains the water – and it can come to the iPhone according to a new patent registered by Apple.

The Apple Watch water-ejection system works by using speakers that vibrate and emit specific sounds coming out of the water, which is useful when you use your Apple Watch for swimming or during a shower.

As stated Apple graduallyThis feature may be available in future iPhone models because Apple has registered a new patent that shows exactly this. The patent was originally filed by Apple back in 2019, but it was only published today by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

The figures show a water-rejection system built into an iPhone that works similar to the technology found on the Apple Watch Series 2 and later. It uses speakers and a sensor module with a hydrophobic coating to repel water, which will make the iPhone even more waterproof and protect speakers from failing right after exposure to fluids.

Based on the patent description, the system is capable of ejecting a wide variety of liquids, including fresh water, salt water, gases, and more. It can also detect the presence of saltwater crystals at the acoustic trap barrier.

When a portable electronic device (iPhone) is exposed to saltwater during a surfing session in Santa Cruz, saltwater crystals can leave residue on an acoustic trap barrier when saltwater evaporates. Accordingly, the diaphragm can be tasked to adequately remove saltwater crystals from the acoustic trap barrier.

However, there are no known plans to include this feature in this year’s iPhone model. It is important to note that Apple files hundreds of patents every year and not all of them are actually used in the actual product.

Popular YouTube channel Slo Mo Guys recently shared a stunning video of the Apple Watch water-ejection system, as we’ve covered here 9to5Mac, And it is worth watching.
