Apple's limited warranty does not cover liquid damage on electronic devices, including water-resistant products like the iPhone and Apple Watch.
Apple has developed a new system daemon called "liquiddetectiond" in the latest macOS build, which detects water in Mac USB-C ports.
The daemon is currently used for analytics and not end-user features, but it may be used in the future to alert users to unplug their devices when water is detected.
Apple has other methods, such as Liquid Contact Indicators (LCI), to determine if a MacBook has been exposed to liquid.
It is recommended to invest in AppleCare Plus for Macs to reduce costs in case of accidental liquid damage.
Water damage to electronic devices can be costly to repair, especially if it reaches the motherboard.
Most people do not take their laptops on walks or runs in the rain, reducing the chances of getting a MacBook wet.
Liquid damage is a common issue for electronic devices, and water is particularly harmful.
Taking precautions and being aware of the risks can help prevent damage to electronic devices from water exposure.
