iPhone Water or Liquid Damage

Water or liquid damage to your iPhone can be a distressing experience. Whether it's a spilled drink, a dip in the pool, or an accidental drop in the sink, liquid exposure can wreak havoc on your device. At HelloRE, we understand the frustration and urgency of such situations. Dropping your iPhone device in water can often leave you with a sinking feeling. It can take a while for a phone to dry out completely, often leaving you without a device. However, if you dropped your iPhone in water and need a repair, don't panic—we've put up an extensive manual that will walk you through many options for dealing with water damage and what to do next.

Many customers have experienced liquid damage or water damage to their iPhone device. Although the latest Apple products may be water-resistant, they are not completely waterproof. Moreover, the majority of iOS devices do not support this feature.

How to find out if your iPhone has water or liquid damage?

Finding out if your iPhone has water damage is simple, just look for your water damage indicator. Depending on your model, it will be in a different place. You can find the exact location of the indicators on each iPhone model on the Apple website or on our blogs

The water or liquid damage indicator is a little white tab which turns red when it is wet enough to damage your device. If this has turned red, it is likely that your phone has a problem.

Causes of iPhone Water Damage:

1. Accidental Spills: One of the most common causes of iPhone water damage is accidental spills of liquids such as water, coffee, or juice onto the device.

2. Submersion: Dropping your iPhone into bodies of water like pools, sinks, or toilets can lead to extensive liquid exposure and damage.

3. Moisture: Exposure to high humidity environments or moisture-laden conditions over time can also contribute to water damage, albeit more slowly.

4. Rain or Weather: Using your iPhone in inclement weather conditions without adequate protection can result in water ingress through ports and openings.

How to fix a water damaged iPhone?

If you have dropped your iPhone in water and are wondering what to do, these are the steps you need to follow to recover your iPhone from potential damage.

  • Turn the iPhone off immediately. This removes the chance that the phone will short circuit, and need to be repaired.
  • Remove your case if you have one on, or anything that might be trapping water in the phone.
  • Remove your iPhone SIM card tray, this could also be trapping water.
  • Give your iPhone a wipe down with an absorbent cloth. Wrap a small piece of absorbent cloth around a toothpick or pin, use this to soak up any water from the charging port, headphone jack, and SIM card tray.
  • Leave your phone in a dry place, and let it air for as long as possible without turning it on. This is the most important step as it will help your iPhone to dry out completely.

Water damage to your iPhone can be a stressful ordeal, but prompt action and professional assistance can often mitigate the extent of the damage. Remember to act quickly, avoid powering on the device, and seek professional repair services like HelloRE for the best chance of salvaging your iPhone.

FAQs for iPhone Water or Liquid Damage

In many cases, yes. However, the extent of the damage and the timeliness of intervention play crucial roles in determining the success of repairs.

While placing your iPhone in rice can help absorb moisture, it's not always the most effective method. It's recommended to leave it in rice or silica gel for at least 24-48 hours before attempting to power it on.

If your iPhone doesn't turn on after drying, seek professional repair services immediately. Continued attempts to power it on can cause further damage.

Invest in a waterproof case, avoid using your iPhone near water sources, and consider using waterproof accessories when necessary.
