The first message informs you that “Charging Not Available,” while the second message informs you that “Liquid Detected in Lightning Connector.” Except in extreme cases, it is critical not to ignore both notifications.

If you want to dry your iPhone Apple has some suggestions, such as lightly tapping it with the Lightning connector facing down to remove any excess liquid and placing it in a dry place with adequate airflow, and waiting about 30 minutes before charging it again.

Apple warns against using external heat sources or compressed air to dry out the iPhone and discourages inserting foreign objects into the Lightning port, such as cotton swabs or paper towels.

It is also advised not to put the iPhone in a bag of rice because this can cause damage to the device.
