Imagine bringing your iPhone over to a friend’s pool party. You start taking pictures along the side of the pool. You also start updating your social media accounts and showing your online friends how much fun you are having. Someone accidentally, or maybe even intentionally shoves you in the water. You gasp for air, climb up the ladder, and wave at everybody because you are still having a great time. Minutes later you realize that your iPhone is dripping wet. Uh oh.
Usually people try to wipe their iPhones dry, blow the water away with a hair dryer, or even cover it in uncooked rice to absorb the wetness. Mysteriously their iPhones still manage to work, but unfortunately there will still be a possibility that the phone will malfunction. The only true way to ensure that everything is okay is to bring your water damaged iPhone to a professional repair shop.
Unless you own a water-proof smart phone, you should bring your water-drenched iPhone to a reputable, professional repair shop where they will take a look and assess the damage. Electronic devices and their components have become damaged by water many times. Even a tightly-sealed gadget cannot withstand the rushing, seeping power of water. It has destroyed too many complicated, expensive devices, and can render your iPhone useless if not treated as early as possible.
The technicians at the repair shop have been in the business for years and they know exactly what to do with your water-damaged iPhone. They have the proper tools and equipment; and they have the know-how and technical expertise when it comes to handling such situations. They know how to assess the damage and in worst-case scenarios, they can still at least save the data on your iPhone’s memory cards. Just be sure to shut your phone off if it becomes wet right away, and take out the battery. This can help prevent a shortage prior to going to the repair shop.
Among the many other damages an iPhone can incur, water damage is the most time-critical. Broken display screen? Sure, have it looked at next week. No signal? Wait until tomorrow. Water damage? Let the professionals take care of it now.
