Is it true that my iPod touch can be damaged if I take it to the bathroom while I take a shower?

You know when you take a shower with the water too hot.. Can that be dangerous to my baby touch?

If the condensation causes the iPod touch to become too wet, it will be water damaged.

I imagine steam and condensation could be bad for it… just don’t take it in the bathroom with you.

Yes, Because you might put it in your lap while you’re taking a shit and it might just fall in the toilet when hoy stand up.

I use my iPhone as a radio in the washroom while I shower all the time. It’s fine but it is possible that the humidity will cause something to short. Very unlikely, IMO. YMMV.

They should make next gen of iPhones waterproof.

Oh! And so does putting it in fire.

Ummm.. Yeah well when I go to the bathroom I take my iPod with me And search the web for funny vids ! But I don’t take showers with it…..that is kinda wired

@Toastlovingcat Hmmm!! Wired? Well, obviously I do not take it with me to the water, I meant that my iPod would be IN the bathroom while i am in the shower. It’s common sense.

@2late2be – If your bathroom gets very humid during your showers, that could be bad for it in the long term due to internal corrosion.

I bring my Itouch in the shower with me to use as a radio… Just put it in a well sealed ziplock bag and all is well. Just don’t drop it in the water. I wouldn’t trust it completely.I usually put it on the shower rack or something. Of course this doesn’t work with headphones… unless you have waterproof headphones and a little duct tape.
