Apple introduces a feature to detect the presence of liquids in the Type-C ports of Mac devices


Anytime water or any other liquid is spilled on any device - especially a MacBook - users generally tend to panic. In most cases, users are usually not aware of the extent of the damage or sometimes they are not aware whether the liquid has somehow gotten inside. connect to Mac ports or keyboards.
In this context, Apple has introduced a new feature in its macOS Sonoma operating system, which can detect the presence of liquid or water in the Type-C ports of Mac computers. 
This feature, called "liquiddetectiond," is designed to help prevent Mac hardware from being damaged by liquid spills or accidental submersion.

How it works?

The Liquiddetectiond daemon is a background process that runs on Macs with Type-C ports.

It monitors the ports for any signs of the presence of liquid, such as a change in electrical resistance or a change in the temperature of the port. If the presence of liquid is detected, the daemon will alert the user with a notification and ask him to disconnect any connected devices.
This notice is intended to help users take immediate action to prevent further damage to their Mac.
The Liquiddetectiond daemon is a valuable tool for Mac users who are concerned about the possibility of liquid damage to their devices.
By monitoring Type-C ports for any signs of liquid, the daemon can help prevent costly repairs or even the loss of your Mac.
Apple's Limited Warranty doesn't cover liquid damage, even for water-resistant products like iPhones and Apple Watches.
As a result, Apple has developed various ways to detect exposure to liquids in its devices, such as Liquid Contact Indicators (LCIs) found on many Apple products which are small stickers that change color when in contact with liquids. 
Apple said on its website that these indicators act as visual signals for technicians to determine whether the device has been exposed to liquids or not, as Mac laptops and some Apple wired and wireless keyboards contain liquid contact indicators (LCI) to help determine whether These products have been exposed to liquids.
