It’s the summer, and many people are bringing their iPhone 5C to the pool or beach. While taking some great selfies or photos of friends and kids, many of these people end up dealing with the devastating situation of dropping their phone into water. Understanding what you need to do when this happens may end up saving your iPhone.
Get It Out Quick
Instinct will make you jump for your iPhone. This is very good thing to do. The longer it sits in water, the worse the damage will likely be when you finally take it out.
Don’t Turn It On – Turn It Off
As much as you want to test it to make sure it survived, do not turn it on if it’s off. If it’s on, turn it off immediately. The connections inside can spark and become damaged if you try to use your phone while there’s water inside of it.
Wipe it down as much as possible, and then lay it out in the sun or in a warm, dry place inside. Some say to put your iPhone in a bag of rice, but that doesn’t always work. The best you can do is let it dry out as much as possible.
After a day or two, when you believe your phone has dried completely, you may want to try it out. If it works, great. If not, you’ll likely need an iPhone 5C repair water damage service.
