iPhone Repair - 5 Steps to Fix Water Damaged iPhone

user reviewThe thing is yesterday morning I put my iPhone 5 in my back pocket. As I was about to use the bathroom my iPhone dropped in water accidently! I quickly grabbed my wet iPhone out of the toilet and got rid of all the excess and exterior water and turned off my iPhone immediately. But I didn’t know what to do next to avoid water damage then. Could anyone give me some advices? Thanks in advance.

It’s so bad that you dropped iPhone in toilet, but no need to freak out and smart that you had done the right things in the first reaction.

It’s possible to rescue a water submerged iPhone only with the right actions in the right time. Timing is especially critical because your iPhone is in cardiac arrest after falling into water and you have very limited time to save it. This article will teach you what to do if you drop your iPhone in water. Besides, when you fail to repair the water damaged iPhone, you can recover data with the help of an iPhone data recovery tool called FoneLab for iOS.

1Dry Out The Surfaces of iPhone

Get your iPhone out of water and dry out the surfaces right away!

After your iPhone got wet, the first thing you should do is wipe the excess and exterior water off everything you can reach and lightly shake it to get rid of water hiding in the ports and sockets. Don’t use a hair-dryer as the excess heat will damage your iPhone beyond repair.

If you can't slide to operate the iPhone, please check how to unlock disabled iPhone.

2Turn Off Your iPhone Without Hesitation

If your iPhone is turned off already, lucky you are! Otherwise, You must power off the drowned iPhone as soon as possible by all means while as this part is extremely essential to whether you can succeed to fix iPhone water damage or not.

Press and hold the Power button for a few seconds, and then slide the button to the right. If you can’t slide to power off on the first try, keep trying.

You may eventually succeed on the ninth or tenth try. If you can turn it off, congratulations you have increased the chance of survival from zero percent to 50 percent.

3Buy DampRid or Silica Gel

Now, you should drive to the nearest hardware store or supermarket to buy DampRid or silica gel

I know maybe it’s not convenient for you to head for a hardware store that carries DampRid in short time. Then I suggest it’s no harm to put your iPhone in a zipper storage back or a sealed container which is filled up with uncooked rice. Store the bag in a warm, dry place for at least one day.

However, I insist that you should try your best to purchase some DampRid packets or silica gels since I received some feedback that the rice trick didn’t work well. Keep following below steps.

Dry out Agents

4Attract The Remaining Water

Place your iPhone in between two packets of DampRid and wrapped together with plastic.

DampRid will attracts and traps excess moisture from the air. It’s multiple times more effective than rice.

5Put the iPhone/DamRid into a Thick Zipper Storage Bag

Now pack your iPhone/DampRid with a heavy zipper storage bag or a sealed container and keep it in a warm, dry place. Cross your fingers and wait for at least 24 hours.

When the time is arrived, take a deep breathe and pray for a while. Then open the bag or container, unpacked your iPhone and power it up. No one can promise that it will turn to be alive in the end, but if you take actions properly and fast enough, your odds are fairly good that your iPhone will survive.
