Apple wants to help make your iPhone more water resistant.
The company filed a patent in May of last year for a device that could aid in "liquid expulsion from an orifice." The patent was accepted on Thursday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Mac obsessives are speculating that the application could use electrode technology to expel liquid that has become trapped in a device, instead of simply protecting against water damage.
Apple did not immediately respond to request for comment.
