    Expect it to fail completely... Look for a replacement.

    Lather. Rinse. Repeat?

    Once water (with or without soap) is introduced to the internals of an electronic item, problems will follow. The soap can actually make things worse because of the additional chemical deposits that will result. Do you have insurance on it? This would be a good time to file a claim for a replacement device.

    Yep, that about sums it up, unfortunately. Hopefully, the IP purchased AppleCare + for it within the past 2 years.
