After trying what was suggested by the last two replies, it might be a good idea to plan on purchasing another phone. Water damage sometimes takes a while to show up. By the way, your question starts off with "if", we are assuming that the phone did get submerged in water.If it accidentally fall in the swimming pool/or to something with water, what are the things should I do first?
Hi Sue and for others to comment about the steps above: 1) Removing the battery ASAP - not an easy or quick task, e.g. for my iPhone XR, I would need a tiny pentalobe screwdriver, warming method, the thin plastic spreaders to remove the back (like in the iFixit kit shown below - I'll probably order one today!); and 2) Use of dry rice has been controversial - see statement below (Source) - googling brings up many 'For' & 'Against' discussions on this topic - for myself, I have a bag of small silicate desiccant packets in the basement (use w/ my small steel hand tools to prevent rust) - I'd prefer to emerge my iPhone in enough silica packs to surround the device. Just my 2 cents - DaveIf a phone falls into water:
* get it out, fast
* wipe it off
* get SIM card and battery out asap
* pour raw rice into a bowl and submerge the phone, battery and card
* leave at least 24 hours before inserting battery and card, switching on and see if it works.
Pardon me. I asked the question on learning purpose. I experience this is a usually common issue among all mobile users. I just asked it because it's good to known about the solutions already.Obviously, an Admin would decide on deletion; but as Admin chscag has combined your posts, I think it sensible to continue with this thread.
And on that note, may I request you to answer the questions I asked in post #9 please?
Basically, has there been water damage of any sort? What model of iPhone? What iOS is it running?
Okay. No problem. I thought you had had some water damage. Sorry for the misunderstanding.Pardon me. I asked the question on learning purpose. I experience this is a usually common issue among all mobile users. I just asked it because it's good to known about the solutions already.
