Apple Amends Internal iPod Water Damage Policy

The folks over at Boy Genius have come across a document showing that Apple might be changing its internal screening process with regards to iPod liquid damage. The fruity company builds a series of Liquid Contact Indicators (LCI) into its iPods which will be activated when they come into contact with water. Guidelines are already in place to deal with devices that may have been affected by liquid, and previously the presence of an activated LCI within the headphone jack is cause enough for employees to state that the iPod may have been damaged by liquid. Now employees are required to inspect the iPod for other signs of liquid damage before coming to that conclusion. This might be a result of earlier complaints that the LCIs located near the headphone jack are overly sensitive and might activate when they come into contact with permissible amounts of moisture.
