I left my iphone in my bathroom near the shower by a window and I discovered that there was water on the inside of the screen, and then the screen didn't respond to my touch for a little bit and then it eventually did..and there was still water on the inside of the screen but i was sort of in a rush to call someone, and it had 3% remaining and i plugged it in a wall charger. It worked fine with the charger for about 15 minutes, and then the screen suddenly turned black and it turned itself off. I panicked and then tried turning it back on again but then it just showed the apple logo and turned itself off and wont come back on again. What damage have I done to my phone? Did I fry the logic board or something? I'm really hoping it could still be revived.
I've since submerged the phone in a bag of rice. But I'm hoping that I didn't completely fry it. I now realize that i act very stupidly and carelessly in dire situations haha.
Buy yourself a black tie and a small wooden box to put the phone in. Carry it to an Apple store with some money (example: in the US $149) and ask for an out-of-warranty replacement. You fried it. It is no more. It has ceased to be. Bereft of life it lies in peace. It is an ex-iPhone.
try putting it in a bowl of rice for 5 days that might soak up the water if not take it back to the apple store and youll need a new one!
My grandaughter dropped my i phone in a bucket of water. I saw it happen and grabbed it right away! I took off the case and put it in a bag of rice right away for 12 hours. The next day I turned it on and it works like nothing ever happened!!!! I was shocked! It's been over a month now and I have had no problems! Pictures, sound, clarity, everything is just like before!!
You are one of the chosen ones, congratulations! Your case might have been a distinct help.
I would just like to say that 12 hours in rice is normally nowhere near long enough, and usually totally ineffectual anyway, but is in the majority of cases a good way of delaying the pain of a dead phone for a few days.
Now that i think about it, do you think that it's just the screen itself that's messed up?
Because my phone wasn't completely submerged in water, it was in a steamy bathroom and there was just water markings underneath the screen that made the touchscreen unresponsive for a while.
But then I charged it. Which could have heated and fried the inside entirely.
I really don't know how.
But thank you for the answers!
