Do AirPods work after being washed?

Apple’s AirPods earbuds may be known for their small, completely wireless design, but a new video shows they’re quite durable. A video posted online shows that the AirPods (in case and outside of case) survive falls from up to 10 feet, submersion in water, and a full-cycle in a washing machine.

Do AirPods have water sensors?

First and foremost, you should know that there is no water indicator on these headphones, and there is no official water-resistant rating. This means that Apple does not acknowledge this product to be waterproof. Therefore, if you end up washing them, there is no easy way to tell how bad the damage is.
