You’re in the middle of a hike through the woods, listening to your favorite songs on your AirPods. When all of a sudden, you hear water dripping from one of them. What does this mean? Did you get caught in the rain? Did you just get sprayed by a passing car? Or maybe more importantly, how do you get it out? How can you tell if your headphones are waterproof or not? What if they’re not and they start to leak? How do you dry them out again so they don’t rust or grow some kind of fungus that lives in moisture and darkness? Read on to learn everything you need to know about waterproofing your AirPods and also how to replace that little white iCloud-connected pod in case yours breaks down.
How To Get Water Out Of AirPods
Take them out of your ears
This is the first thing you should do if you’re having water problems. The water will not run out of your AirPods unless your earbuds are actually in your ears. So, the first thing you need to do is remove them from your ears. You can use a cloth or paper towel to wipe off any excess moisture.
Blow on it
The next step is to blow into the AirPod’s charging case and see if that fixes it. Why? Because this is probably going to be a little bit more difficult than just blowing into an open ear canal, so there’s a chance that the water may have seeped in through the charging case itself rather than through your AirPods themselves. When you blow into the charging case, it should equalize pressure between all of the air inside and outside of it, which will hopefully dry out any remaining moisture inside of it and allow for normal operation once again. You should also make sure that there are no other sources of moisture nearby that could be causing this problem in the first place (like a leaky cap). If you still have an issue with water after following these steps, please take them to Apple for repair or replacement as necessary.   
Remove Wires/Pods/Charging Case First!
There are several ways to remove AirPod wires from an AirPod, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. One is to take out the pod first. The other is to use a needle or paper clip to carefully pry out the wires from the pod’s connection points.
Contents of AirPod Charging Case
The contents of an AirPod Charging Case are not waterproof, so you will have to be careful with them when taking them out of the case. Some people have reported that using a toothpick or similar object will do the trick, but you should be careful to avoid accidentally poking your finger in there and causing any damage.
Use Paper Towel or Cloth
Once you’ve removed the pod, wipe off any excess moisture that’s left in the charging case by using a paper towel or cloth (I like using an old T-shirt). If you don’t mind getting it wet, you can also put your iPhone in a plastic bag while you do this step – this will help keep it dry while still allowing for airflow inside your bag (and not just leaving it with moisture all over). This method works better than just blowing on the charging case because blowing onto it could cause condensation which could lead to mold issues which would then cause problems with your phone itself.
Charge AirPods in a Safe Place
I’ve heard of people using their laptops, but I would not recommend this method. I’ve also heard of people placing their charging cases in the freezer and taking them out after an hour or so, but again, I wouldn’t recommend this either. The best place to charge your AirPods is somewhere that is relatively dry and safe – while they are charging they will be vulnerable to water getting inside of them, so make sure you put something between you and any water sources. If you’re concerned about moisture getting into your AirPods, there are also a couple of other ways to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Take Your AirPods to a Repair Shop
If you’re concerned about the condition of your AirPods, or if they are not working properly, you should take them to an Apple Store or Genius Bar for repair. You can also go to an Apple Authorized Service Provider and have them check out your AirPods for you (most of our repair guides will tell you where you can go get your AirPods checked out by a professional).
How To Fix A Leaking AirPod
Make Sure Your AirPod is Unlocked
If you’ve got a leak that’s occurring on the inside of your AirPod, it could be due to any number of reasons. If the case is still locked and it’s not leaking, try removing the case completely and see if any water is leaking out. If it is, then you know that your AirPods are not being charged properly (they may be charging but they aren’t being recognized by your iPhone).
Make Sure Your AirPod Is Charged Properly
If your AirPods are not being recognized by your iPhone, then you may have a problem with them being “overcharged.” There are a few different things that can cause this: The first thing to do is make sure that your AirPods are being charged properly – if you have multiple charging cables for Apple devices, use one of those to charge them. If you don’t have multiple cables and you think they might be overcharged, try using an old USB cable from another device – it should work just fine since these ones aren’t designed for charging purposes. If they still won’t charge properly, go ahead and bring them back into an Apple Store or Genius Bar so that they can check them out further.
Check Your iPhone Charger Cable
One thing to remember when using the charging cable provided with your iPhone is that it is not a USB cable, it is an Apple Lightning cable. If you are using a third-party Lightning charging cable, then your iPhone might not be able to charge the AirPods properly – this can cause them to overheat and possibly break. The good news is that most of these cables are pretty cheap, so you can easily replace them with a new one if they are causing problems.
Check Your AirPods Charging Port
If you’ve got a leak on the inside of your AirPod, then it could be from the charging port itself – make sure that it isn’t damaged in any way and try charging them again. If that doesn’t work for you (or if there still isn’t any water leaking out), then try removing the case entirely and see if any water is leaking out from there as well.
Take Your AirPods to an Apple Store or Genius Bar for Repair
If none of these methods have worked for you, it’s time to bring your AirPods back into an Apple Store or Genius Bar for repair services – they will be able to figure out what the problem is with your device and get it fixed right away. You can contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about taking your AirPods in for repair or need some troubleshooting tips on how to fix a leaky AirPod.
Waterproofing your AirPods is an easy process that is a great investment for any active person. Waterproofing your headphones is good for more than just swimming. It also protects your AirPods from sweat, rain, and dust. If your AirPods are currently wet, try one of the quick fixes above to dry them out. From there, make sure to clean your AirPods regularly and take care of your seal to avoid water damage in the future.
How do I get my AirPods wet?
In order for your AirPods to get wet, you have to first make sure that they are fully submerged in water. As long as your AirPods are not completely submerged in water, they will not break or malfunction. If your AirPods do get wet, you should immediately remove them from the water and dry them off with a dry towel or some tissues – if you allow the water to sit inside of them for too long, it could ruin their internal components.
Can I use my AirPods while they are being charged?
No, you cannot use your AirPods while they are being charged this is because the charging port is located on the Lightning connector and as such cannot be used while charging. You can only charge your AirPods by using their power bank or a Lightning cable directly connected to an iPhone or iPad. If one of these methods fails to charge your device, then please contact our support team so that we can troubleshoot and help you fix the issue right away!
