iOS 10 Now Warns You If Liquid is Detected in Your Lightning Port [Image]

iOS 10 beta 3 will now warn you if liquid is detected in your Lightning port.

Screenshots of the new feature were posted to Imgur and shared on reddit by lucioghosty. When Apple detects that the Lightning port is wet the following prompt appears on screen...

Disconnect Lightning Accessory
Liquid has been detected in the Lightning connector. To protect your iPhone, disconnect this Lightning accessory and allow the connector to dry.

You're given the option to Ignore the message but if you select this option you are repeated asked to confirm your selection and warned that "Ignoring this message may cause irreparable damage to your iPhone".

Apple is rumored to be improving water resistance with the iPhone 7 and this feature may be part of those plans. At the very least, it could help prevent water damage to existing devices from liquid that may have gone unnoticed.

Sometimes your phone getting near water is inevitable... I found this thread today after I got this message after I got caught outside in the middle of a huge rain storm.... there was virtually nothing I could do to protect my phone other than have it in my pocket, which really didn't help it was raining so badly.

Seriously, not to troll but are you all aware samsung S7 already has that feature. It warns it when your when you pin is wet. I spilled a glass of water on my carpet and didn't realize my cable was laying in it. I plugged it in and didn't pay attention checked my phone a few minutes later to see the message saying my charge pin is we and to disconnect and dry first.

Maybe iOS 10 was developing this at the time s7 was released, but who knows? Maybe this was also made hinting at gully waterproof iPhone.

Here's the BIG QUESTION. Let's say that you get the warning about water in your lightning port. You then take care of it (i.e. you dry it out) and the warning goes away. Will your phone now have a PERMANENT log entry that Apple will later be able to access if you have any future problem with your phone? Will Apple use this to deny any warranty service?
