Dock dunked in wine. Now what?
I was working at my computer when I realized I dunked the dock end of the connector in some Pinot Grigio (in case type of wine matters).
I wiped it off well but don't know whether to use it or toss it.
Any advice? I don't want to jeapodize my iPhone or iPad.

I would sit the portion that was dunked in wine in a bowl of uncooked rice overnight. The rice *should* soak up the wine and no, it is NOT guaranteed to work. If you're uncomfortable doing that then you may as well go a nearby Walmart and buy a replacement cable for your i-device.

I dropped my Nokia in the toilet once and it worked for a month after that, but I think the electronic parts were damaged, so there was no chance of recovery...
I think the only way is to switch power off and dry the thing out and than take it to service where they would clean it from "sugar".
