How do you normally solve it? Sometimes I try to reboot but it's still the service. Thinking whether 11.4 will solve this bug or not

AFAIK, neither Apple nor Samsung officially extend warranty cover for their ip67 and ip68 smartphones when it comes to water damage.

Dunno about you guys and girls but I really avoid taking risks with my expensive ‘water resistant’ phones when it comes to water exposure. Old habits die hard I guess.

I've brought my X for my swims a few times already, just gotta let it "dry" first before doing anything like charging etc. No problems.

For Malaysia there is no Apple Care offered for iPhones, so you can only buy third party protection from Switch or Machines or Harvey Norman but that’s only applicable when you buy the phone from them as well.

Heard a few cases on the poor waterproofing on iPhone. Water damage with just normal use. Not even submerge into 1m deep with a long period. Kinda annoying.

I think iPhone need to change it to splash resistant in stead of water resistant just like one plus 6 lol

However, my Samsung s8 server me well with abuse in water most of the time 🤣

For your info, no manufacturers dare to offer warranties for water damage because it will be hard to prove the depth of water your phone went through. The first company which started waterproofed phones was Sony and they had a hard time replacing and repairing water damaged phones.
