My iPhone 6 dropped in water

1 10 June 5, 2018 at 09:18 PM
I dropped my iPhone 6 in the swimming pool and the screen started to flicker. After a few seconds, the phone turned off.
I put the phone into the rice and waited a few days. When I tried to turn the phone on the screen kept being black but the phone was on. what should i do? where can i get my iPhone repair in the UK?

Your best bet is likely to look at a replacement. It's nearly a 4 year old phone at this point. Cost of replacement parts would likely be more then it's worth.

I agree with LiquidRetro. There's really no use trying to salvage it at this point. You should consider a waterproof phone if you decide to get a new one. 😊 Best of luck!

If you drop another phone in water, place it in silica gel, they are the little packets that come with electronics. It also says to throw away, but I keep it to keep moisture out of my boxed items. Open up enough packets and they work better than rice.

As soon as you got it out of the water you turn it off just a quick as you can, else you risk damaging the phone...or damaging it further.

The fact that you let it finally turn itself off was probably a critical mistake.

99% chance you need to replace it or pay a hefty amount to get it rebuilt.

The best way is to buy a new one or use a rugged smartphone.

If the iphone shut off itself in the water, that's probably a goner.
