PostSubject: 6 Things To-Do Immediately if iPhone has Water Contact   2015-08-22, 22:28

Want to save your iPhone? Drop everything and do this
first, before putting it in rice:

Remove from water as soon as humanly
possible (obvious, right? But seriously, seconds
can matter here so move quick)

Turn the iPhone off immediately by holding
down the power button until it shuts off

Remove any case or enclosure right away since
they can trap in moisture, screen protectors are
fine to leave on unless there’s an obvious water
bubble

Dry out the iPhone as best as you can using
cloth (t-shirt, socks, whatever is readably
available) or an absorbent material. Wipe down
the screen, sides, and back.Pay special attention to the power button, volume buttons, mute switch, speakers and microphones, and the audio output jack, try and get all visible moisture soaked up

Use a Q-Tip if possible to try and soak up extra
water from the audio output jack and in small
crevices. If you’re out and about or have no q-
tips handy, a little stick or sharp pencil poking
through a t-shirt or cotton material can work too


Disconnect any headphones, ports, chargers,
USB cables, or accessories immediately
Now with all visible water removed, you’re ready to
stuff the iPhone into a rice bag.

Put the iPhone Into a Sealed Bag Full of Rice
Here are the basic requirements:

A zip-lock bag or similar that is air tight
Rice, any generic type, ideally not
“enriched” (more on that in a second)
Patience for at least 36 hours
Fill a zipper locked bag fairly full of rice so that the
entire iPhone will be covered like in the picture below,

then place the iPhone into the bag and seal it shut with
some air in the bag.
Any type of rice works, but try to avoid enriched rice,
the reason being that whatever enriches it leaves a lot
of white residual powder in the bag and it will also get
into the ports and buttons on the iPhone. Enriched rice
does still work (it’s actually what I learned), but
knowing now that it leaves a lot of mystery white
powder gunked up in places, I’ll probably go buy a bag
of normal rice for any potential future water-meets-
iPhone encounters. The patience part is the hardest,
and generally the longer you wait the better the likely
outcome because you want all water inside the device
to be completely absorbed by the rice before trying to
power it on again. I left my iPhone in the air-tight rice
bag for around 36 hours, but there’s no harm in leaving
it in for 48 hours. Any less may work but it also could
be inadequate, so therefore longer is better.
Success! Saved from Water Damage
Once you’ve waited at least 36 hours, open the rice bag
and check out the iPhone. If you suspect the iPhone has
any residual moisture left in it at all, do not power it on.
If all seems well, go ahead and turn it on as usual. If all
goes well, it’ll power on as usual, and your iPhone will
have survived the water encounter!
Here’s my iPhone turned on for the first time after a full
submersion in water, it works beautifully just as normal,
and is dry as can be:
This should work for almost every instance of severe
water contact with an iPhone, though obviously for
situations where an iPhone is soaking in water while
turned on for 15 minutes or longer your likelihood of
recovery is going to diminish dramatically. Likewise,
you’ll have much better recovery odds with fresh water
than you would with salt water, simply because salt
water is more corrosive. Soft drinks and sticky
beverages will be more challenging as well since they
leave more residue around, but as long as it dries out it
will probably survive even if you dump a coke or coffee
onto an iPhone.
Check the Water Damage / Liquid Contact Sensors
After the iPhone is dried out completely, check out the
liquid contact indicators. Each iPhone is equipped with
several water damage sensors that turn red if contact
with any fluid is made, and if they are triggered than the
likelihood of free repair service is fairly slim and your
warranty may be toast. You can check these yourself by
looking at the following locations, depending on your
