What to Do When Your Phone Gets Water Damaged, Highland Village, Texas

Even with a case and careful handling, you have your phone with you every day, so accidents can happen. When your phone gets submerged in water, you’ll need to act quickly to prevent permanent damage and possible destruction. Follow each of the steps below for effective iPhone® repairs.

What to Do After Your iPhone Gets Wet

1. Turn It Off

iPhone repairWater inside your phone can short-circuit it and cause long-term damage. You can prevent this by ensuring there’s no power running through it. Immediately turn off the phone if it’s on. Do not plug it in or turn it back on, even if you’re tempted to see whether it’s working. If it does turn on, you might short-circuit it and destroy the phone permanently.

2. Dry It Out

You want to remove as much of the water as possible. Dry off the exterior, and then take out the SIM card and shake it off. Do not use something like a hairdryer, as the heat can damage the phone’s internal components. The myth of sticking the phone in uncooked rice isn’t the best choice, as it will not fully dry out the interior and could get particles stuck inside.

3. Take It In for iPhone Repairs

Take your phone immediately into an iPhone repair expert. They will dismantle the phone to dry out each interior part individually. It’s best if you can do this as soon as possible within 24 hours of the water exposure. They’ll see if any parts are no longer working and replace them if it’s an option. If the phone can be salvaged, they’ll be able to do it.
