There is often nothing more devastating than dropping an expensive Iphone in a sink, puddle, or toilet. Just the very thought of doing so sends shivers down many an Iphone owner’s spine. The unfortunate fact is that these kinds of accidents are not uncommon, and most people will have to deal with the repercussions of a wet phone at some point in time. While phones can usually be salvaged after taking them to a professional, there are several steps that one can take, as well as several things one should not do, as soon as the accident occurs, in order to minimize the damage, therefore increasing the odds that the phone will be able to be effectively repaired.
There is another common method that many people use in order to dry out their Iphone and this is to submerge the phone in a tub of uncooked rice. Doing so will help draw out water from the device, often in as little as 48 hours. While the phone may power back on and seem miraculously repaired after doing so, this is only a temporary fix, as the Iphone is most likely slowly rusting away on the inside. This will cause additional problems down the road.
In case of accidental water exposure, it is best to gently dry off the phone with an absorbent cloth and call professionals for further assistance. By getting the Iphone to a professional repairman as quickly as possible, this will minimize the amount of damange done and increase the chances of the iPhone being restored to a working condition.
