Water damage ideas
Ok just being random but
I worked on a iPhone today for a friend
Was water damage .. Not sure how long etc
Phone only turned on when connected to power unplug phone dies
Opened it inside was still soaked
I removed battery hair dryer inside
Till complete dry
Cleaned battery connector
Phone now works turns on etc
Only prob is as soon as battery is connected even when powered off phone gets hot not the battery but the logic board near where the battery connects and battery drain super fast like 100 to 15 in like a hour
My guess something is grounding it
Any ideas ? Anyone seen this .. Phone is being replaced by warranty from friend anyways but I'm just curious lol

Water damage ideas
Put it in a bag of rice and seal the bag. Leave it for a few days. The dona complete restore after charging
In saying that it may be to late
What I am amazed at Apple usually never replaces phones that have been in water. They test the phone with special equipment and if it shows moisture the answer is no.
The usually charge a change over fee and provide new or rebuilt phone

Re: Water damage ideas
water contains certain chemical properties, both positive and negative, that disrupt electrical activity and alter it. rice has been said to work but this only delays the inevitable, which is the breakdown of the electronic components. thats why aftermarket manufacturers have been coming up with ways to "waterproof" phones for a while without using a case and done from the outside of the device.
