AirPods in the shower?

This is a weird one. But I use my AirPods 2 all the time and sometimes I forget to take them, even if I’m in the shower!

So I was wondering if it is actually alright to use them in the shower. I’m guessing no, but it would be nice.

No. They do not have an IP rating for that.

As I read this, I can’t help but think about CGP Grey’s time off the internet, which started as a recognition that we don’t have a moment without input, including in the shower - where people used to enjoy the silence and think. Just say no to AirPods in the shower! :slight_smile:


They’re sweat-resistant (though not officially labeled as such, IIRC). Not rated for immersion or even “sustained” water exposure.
