The one-year limited warranty from Apple or APP ( AppleCare Protection Plan ) does not cover assistance for damage on an iPhone or iPod due to contact with fluids.
Find out if your iPhone or iPod damage due to contact with liquids
If the damage on an iPhone or iPod is due to contact with liquids (such as coffee or a soft drink ), the one-year limited warranty from Apple or APP ( AppleCare Protection Plan ) does not cover assistance. The models of the iPhone and most iPod models manufactured after 2006 have indicators of contact with mixed liquid, which will signal if the device has come into contact with water or a liquid containing water.
The iPhone models and most iPod models feature indicators of contact with liquids ( LCI ) visible from the outside.
An LCI will make when it comes into contact with water or a liquid containing water. Normally the indicator color is white or silver, but when it enters into contact with water or a liquid containing water will become entirely red. An LCI will not activate due to moisture and temperature changes that fall within the environmental limits of the product.
To find out if the LCI device has come into contact with liquids, identifies your product in the table below and displays the position or the LCI LCI in the instrument. Might be helpful to use a magnifying glass or angle the light or device so that the LCI is visible.
This table shows the position indicator or the indicators and how they become after exposure to liquids:
* IPod nano ( 7th generation ) and an iPod touch (5th generation ) do not have a contact with liquid indicator visible.
If you do not have the certainty that exposure to liquids has caused a problem for the device even if you see a red LCI, contact AppleCare or an ASP iPhone for assistance.
