My iPhone is damaged by the drop in the water”. Seriously it is a matter of deep thinking “how to fix water damaged iPhone” or “Repair water damaged iPhone”?

Actually, this problem is most expensive to all because we are not a repair engineer, so how to fix water damaged iPhone we don’t know. But why? When every time we face some of like this problem, every time we have to pay money to a technician. Just think if it can be solved by yourself? Then you no need to hire a technician and also no need to pay him fees. Also, you become smarter than the other.

So here I teach you how to manage this situation. Also, I will help to learn “what to do at that
the time when it happens” I mean just a primary First Aid. It’s very useful to repair water damaged iPhone. Actually, all these are not only for iPhone, you can use all this method in case of any other smartphone like Samsung, Nokia or BlackBerry etc.

Let me clear about some of my sentence :

Have you dropped your iPhone in water?

In result it might get some problem like “device will unable to turn on” or “it will getting restart sequentially” or “it will turn off automatically”. These are the common problem happen in most of these cases.

I highly recommend to just keep your device turn off (battery is non-removable) and put it dry in
sunlight. If possible put it as the same for 2-3 days.

This is overall a primary suggestion I can give you, but actually, we have to do little more work on it to keep it safe. So just dive into becoming a technician.

given below :

  • Remove its cover (flip-cover or back-cover) and as quick as remove the sim from sim tray and sd card also.
  • Keep continuously jerk it to get relief it’s trapped water.
  • Don’t forget to wipe it with s dry absorbent cloth. You can take help of a pin, wrap it on the pin and try to lean or soak the water from its tinny parts like the headphone jack, sim tray, charging port etc.
  • Try to do this as end as possible to keep your phone safe and put it very long on air. But be careful, don’t try to turn it on.

N.B: One common matter just fixed in your mind that “don’t keep your mind on whatever others are advice” like put your phone in a rice drum or put it on a locker for few days etc. It all is never recommended.


Now I start to describe a little bit more deeply.
