Whether your iphones taken a dip in the loo or you’ve dropped it in a puddle we are here to help!

Firstly there are a few things you should do/know about water damage.

  • Whatever you do, do NOT try to use your phone or charge it. Doing this can cause a short circuit and do a lot more damage to the device.
  • Remove the back cover and disconnect the battery (if possible) and remove sim trays to make a gap for any water to come out of the phone.
  • The rice trick is a myth, rice is a food and not for drying out liquid damaged iPhones.
  • The corrosion that is deposited by the water drying can do as much if not more harm to the logic board than the liquid itself.
  • Bring it in to us as soon as possible, if the phone is still wet then we have more of a chance of bringing it back to life for you.
