iPhone® Water Damage: What To Do If Your iPhone Device Gets Wet

Let’s be honest with ourselves – we love our iPhone devices! They keep us connected to our close friends, family and the world at large. And we pay a lot of money to keep connected. What happens when these beloved devices get wet? Well, in most cases, panic sets in fast.

If you have ever witnessed a friend being thrown into a pool with their phone in their hands or if you have ever dropped your phone in a puddle on a rainy day, you know all about that panic. Water can make an iPhone device useless fairly quickly. Important components can become damaged and in most cases, water damage voids any warranty that you may have. Before panic sets in, there are a few steps that you can take to prevent lasting water damage to your iPhone device.

Think About the Liquid

You might find yourself enjoying a relaxing weekend at a friend’s pool or on a great tropical vacation one day. Keeping this in mind, the water found within lakes and rivers or even the ocean contains minerals and small grains of dirt and sand. Once your phone dries, these particles can cause more damage to your iPhone device components. Bringing it in to Experimac of Chandler and letting our local experts dry and clean your phone will ensure that all these foreign particles are not a problem in the long run.

Rice Is Not King

Although many have tried it, do not bother putting your iPhone device in a bag of rice. Dry, uncooked conventional rice will do nothing to help your phone dry out. If it turns back on after being put in the rice, it had nothing to do with the rice. You pretty much wasted the cups of rice your put your phone into as well as some very valuable time.

Act Quickly! Power Down, Dry It Off, Leave It Alone

As the panic sets in, it is critical to remove your iPhone device from the liquid right away and power it down immediately. Water and other liquids can short-circuit electronics so you don’t want it soaking in the water. Immediately turning off your iPhone device will minimize the chances of internal components being short circuited. If applicable, remove and dry the SIM card as well. Resist the urge to power your iPhone device back on! Instead, dry it off with a clean cloth focusing on the headphone jack and charge port.

Grab your iPhone device and head to Experimac of Chandler; we will immediately get the ball rolling with our unique process. The sooner you bring the phone in to our location, the greater the chance that we can save your phone. This is critical because the more time passes, the more likely it is that components inside your phone may begin to corrode as a result of their exposure to water. We will assess the extent of the iPhone device’s water damage and see if there is any way that we can save your phone. Our first step is to carefully dry any excess liquid and then we gently scrub and remove any corrosion found on and inside your iPhone device. We will then remove the logic board and soak the phone in 91% or higher isopropyl alcohol for at-least 15 minutes to clean and dry it out thoroughly. This is why bringing in your iPhone device right away can make a world of difference.

Find Comfort In The Fact That All Is Not Lost

If we are not able to save the device, we have a large inventory of pre-owned iPhone devices at reasonable prices that you can purchase to replace your damaged iPhone device. Remember that if you’ve been backing your phone up on the iCloud® service or on your Mac® computer at home, you should have nothing to worry about because all of your beloved contacts, photos, etc. should be there and can be moved into your new phone easily.

Get Familiar With Your Warranty

Take a moment now, while your phone is working well, to review the terms of your warranty so you’ll know what you’re entitled to if you’re ever in this situation. Water damage to your iPhone device voids your manufacturer’s warranty including any additional AppleCare® warranty coverage you may have purchased. Some third party insurance companies will cover submersion, spills, and accidental drops. If you are covered, consider filing a claim with your insurance company. Again, taking action quickly and bringing your phone in to Experimac Chandler  right away can be the critical factor! So remember, when you or someone you know has the awful experience of watching their much loved iPhone go for a swim, Experimac’s local experts are here to save the day!

Water Damage: What to Do If Your Apple® Device Gets Wet

We love our Apple devices! Furthermore, we’ve come to rely on them. They keep us connected to our family, friends and the world and we pay a lot of money to keep connected. What happens when these beloved devices get wet? Well, in most cases, we start to panic right away.

If you have ever dropped your iPhone® device in a puddle on a rainy day or watched an iPad® tablet fall into a pool, you know very well what that panic feels like. Water can make an iPhone device or iPad tablet completely useless fairly quickly. Important components can become damaged the moment they come into contact with a liquid and in most cases, water damage will void your warranty. Before complete panic sets in and you start thinking about buying a new iPhone device or iPad tablet, there are a few steps that you can take to prevent lasting damage.

Salt water, fresh water, muddy puddle . . . it makes a difference!

You might find yourself enjoying an afternoon by the lake on your family’s annual vacation or perhaps on a great vacation in the Caribbean while browsing the Internet on your device. It’s important to note that the water found within lakes and rivers or even the ocean contains minerals and small grains of dirt and sand. Once your phone dries, these particles can cause more damage to your device’s components. Bringing it in to your local Experimac store right away might make all the difference. Let our local experts dry and clean your device; they will ensure that all these particles are not a problem in the long run.

Rice is not a savior

Although many of you have possibly tried it, do not bother putting your iPhone device or iPad tablet in a bag of rice after you retrieve it from the bottom of the bathtub, pool or ocean. Despite the common myth, dry, uncooked conventional rice will do nothing to help your phone or tablet dry out. If it does turns back on after being put in the rice, it had nothing to do with the rice, we promise you it will be a waste of valuable time.

Don’t waste time! Power down, dry it off, and leave it alone

It is critical to remove your device from the liquid as quickly as possible and then power it down immediately. Whether it’s water, soda or juice, liquid can short-circuit electronics so you don’t want your device soaking in liquid unnecessarily. Immediately turning off your iPhone device or iPad tablet will decrease the chances of internal components being short circuited. If your device has a SIM card, remove and dry that as well. No matter what, resist the urge to power your device back on! Instead, dry it off with a clean cloth focusing on the headphone jack and charge port.

Grab your treasured device and head to your local Experimac so we can immediately get the ball rolling with our unique process. The sooner you bring the device in to Experimac, the greater the chance that we can save your device.

We will start by carefully drying any excess liquid and then we will gently scrub and remove any corrosion found on and inside your device. Then, we’ll remove the logic board and apply a 91% alcohol solution to clean and dry it out thoroughly. Bringing in your iPhone device or iPad tablet in to Experimac right away can make all the difference in the world.

Rest assured, there is hope

If we are not able to save the device, we do have a large inventory of reasonably priced pre-owned iPhone devices and iPad tablets that you can purchase to replace your damaged device. Backing your device up on the iCloud® system or on your Mac® computer at home is critical because of these exact moments. If you have been doing that, you should have nothing to worry about. Experimac can help move your contacts, pictures, etc. into your new device for you.

Know your warranty

It’s always important to review the terms of your warranty so you’ll know what you’re entitled to if you’re ever in this situation. Liquid damage voids your manufacturer’s warranty including any additional AppleCare® warranty coverage you may have purchased. Some third party insurance companies will cover submersion, spills, and accidental drops. If you are covered, consider filing a claim with your insurance company.

Taking action right away and bringing your phone or tablet in to your local Experimac immediately can make a huge difference.

iPhone® in Water: Step-by-Step Guide

Whether it falls in the pool, a puddle or maybe even the toilet, dropping your iPhone® in water is something that’s happened to the best of us and is often fixable. Take a look at this step-by-step guide with the best steps to take should this happen to you:

  1. Don’t Panic
    Fight the temptation to panic should you drop your phone in water. Get the phone out of the water right away! Keep in mind that this happens all the time and this is reparable. By panicking, you may fail to take the best measures in preventing further damage to your iPhone®. Damage to your phone can increase the longer it takes you to dry off your phone. The longer it sits in the water, the more time you’re allowing water to get in through the phone’s seams.
  2. Turn Off and Wipe Off Your Phone
    Liquids can short-circuit electronic devices due to conductivity, so once you’ve picked up your phone, turn it off immediately. Don’t turn it back on, charge it or connect it to anything until you’ve allowed at least 48 hours for it to dry out. Be sure to wipe it off with an absorbent scratch-free cloth, paying special attention to the headphone jack and charge port. Remove and dry the SIM card and tray if your phone happens to be an AT&T/GSM model, and allow 48 hours before reinserting.
  3. Try Rice
    Placing your phone in a sealable plastic bag or other conainer filled with 4 cups of uncooked instant rice could possibly help your phone dry off. Uncooked instant rice, or silica gel, have been known to absorb liquids in phones, without harming the phone. The grains of rice or pieces of silica are too large to enter the phone and damage it; however, they have been known to assist in absorbing liquids.
  4. Check Warranty Options
    Be sure to check your warranty once your iPhone® has dried. Unfortunately, liquid damage is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty nor is it covered by AppleCare® coverage. Some iPhone® buyers invest in third party warranty options such as Asurion or SquareTrade, which can offer coverage for submersion or spills depending on the policy you have. Try to file a claim to replace your damaged iPhone® regardless of the phone’s condition.
  5. Visit Experimac – Liquid Cleaning
    If, after exhausting these steps, you still find your iPhone® is damaged, consider liquid cleaning as your last attempt to save it. Come by and visit your local Experimac store today where we are able to offer you many iPhone® repair services including liquid cleaning. Our liquid cleaning service is safe, effective, and offered for many Apple® products. Our trained professionals will carefully dry excess liquids, gently scrub away any corrosion, and apply a safe 91% alcohol solution to clean and dry out the phone completely.

Remember, we are your local Apple® device experts. Call us to find out how we can save your iPhone® today.

iPhone® Water Damage: What To Do If Your iPhone Gets Wet

Let’s be honest with ourselves – we love our iPhones! They keep us connected to our close friends, family and the world at large. And we pay a lot of money to keep connected. What happens when these beloved devices get wet? Well, in most cases, panic sets in fast.

If you have ever witnessed a friend being thrown into a pool with their phone in their hands or if you have ever dropped your phone in a puddle on a rainy day, you know all about that panic. Water can make an iPhone useless fairly quickly. Important components can become damaged and in most cases, water damage voids any warranty that you may have. Before panic sets in, there are a few steps that you can take to prevent lasting damage.

Think About the Liquid
You might find yourself enjoying a relaxing weekend at a friend’s pool or on a great tropical vacation one day. Keeping this in mind, the water found within lakes and rivers or even the ocean contains minerals and small grains of dirt and sand. Once your phone dries, these particles can cause more damage to your iPhone components. Bringing it in to Experimac of Klein and letting our local experts dry and clean your phone will ensure that all these foreign particles are not a problem in the long run.

Rice Is Not King
Although many have tried it, do not bother putting your iPhone in a bag of rice. Dry, uncooked conventional rice will do nothing to help your phone dry out. If it turns back on after being put in the rice, it had nothing to do with the rice. You pretty much wasted the cups of rice your put your phone into as well as some very valuable time.

Act Quickly! Power Down, Dry It Off, Leave It Alone
As the panic sets in, it is critical to remove your iPhone from the liquid right away and power it down immediately. Water and other liquids can short-circuit electronics so you don’t want it soaking in the water. Immediately turning off your iPhone will minimize the chances of internal components being short circuited. If applicable, remove and dry the SIM card as well. Resist the urge to power your iPhone back on! Instead, dry it off with a clean cloth focusing on the headphone jack and charge port.
