IPhone repair fell into the water

WHAT TO DO IMMEDIATELY

There are some important steps to take when you take your iPhone or Samsung out of the water:

  1. Turn it off : This should be done immediately if it is still on. This prevents short-circuiting caused by water inside the phone.
  2. Put it bare : Anything that can be removed from your smartphone should be removed. This includes any type of shell or protection that may surround your phone but also the SIM card drawer. Thus, the water inside can escape more easily.
  3. Empty it with water : Take out as much water as possible by shaking your iPhone, blowing on it and using paper towels. Do not be afraid to look ridiculous, the life of your smartphone is at stake.

The rice bag technique

It sounds like a grandmother’s trick, but it works! Here’s what you need:

  • A zip-lock plastic bag that is airtight
  • Uncooked rice
  • Patience, at least 36 hours, the longer you wait, the more you reduce the risk.

Fill the plastic dry rice pouch so that the iPhone is covered as in the picture below, then seal the bag with some air inside. The rice will then absorb the moisture present in the phone.

BRAVO! YOU SAVED YOUR IPHONE!

Once you’ve waited for at least 36 hours, open the rice bag and watch your iPhone or Galaxy. If you think there is still moisture inside, do not turn it on. If everything looks good, cross your fingers and turn it on as usual. It will then restart and you can say that your phone will have survived its annoying encounter with the water.

WHAT TO DO IF YOUR IPHONE DOES NOT TURN BACK ON OR IS DAMAGED

If your iPhone is still damaged despite the precautions taken above, you can always try to bring your iPhone to Apple to see if it can be exchanged or repaired for free. However, without AppleCare insurance, the chances are pretty slim since the basic warranty does not cover water damage and accidental damage in general. That said, there are always exceptions, and sometimes the cost of repair can be reasonable.

If the rates proposed for a repair by Apple are too high, it will then turn to an independent smartphone repairer. These repairers most often offer repair services for iPhones quality and guaranteed several months. They are located in all cities of France and you can for example access repair services iPhones in Paris for devices fallen into the water in Paris, but also have your broken screen repaired in Nantes .

Most faults are supported. In the case of an iPhone dropped into the water, the repairer will deoxidate the motherboard, the centerpiece of the iPhone. This technique will save him in 75% of cases.
