How to Save a Wet iPhone

Imagine dropping your beloved phone into water! Frightening, isn’t it? Don’t worry; there are ways that you can fix it without spending expensive cell phone repair services. Right now, we’ll take a look at the best ways to ensure that it is not the end of your device! 

When your phone gets wet, don’t try to turn it on. The first thing you must do is remove all the removable parts of your phone and drain as much water you can. Then dry the device using a hair dryer. When it’s completely dry, immerse the phone into a box of rice and leave it there for 5 days. The reason behind this is because the rice will absorb the moisture out of your phone. 

After waiting patiently, reassemble your phone, attach it to the charger and try turning it on. If you’re lucky, the phone will turn on. But of course this tip will depend on the degree of damage your phone has acquired. As a final bit of advice, make sure to be careful with your phone!
