iOS 14 automatically disables charging when lighting port is in water

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman found that Apple introduced infusion detection in its upcoming iOS 14 mobile operating system. If the Lighting port is found to be suspected of water inlet, the system will automatically disable the charging function by default. Mark Gurman saw the prompt after an accident on Tuesday and shared screenshots to the social network.

iOS 14 automatically disables charging when lighting port is in water

When moisture is detected on the iPhone’s Lighitng port, the iOS 14 beta will display a “temporarily unchargeable” and urge the user to disconnect the attachment and keep the device dry as soon as possible, and then try to connect again.

If you continue to force charging, the user’s iPhone may be damaged. Even so, Apple offers users the neglect option to continue charging in an emergency.

In fact, as early as 2016, inlet protection was introduced as part of the iOS 10 beta and has been retained in all subsequent iOS releases, although iOS 14 was unable to automatically disable charging by default.
