    Well few nights ago my iPhone 6S had a dip into some water, was in it for about 10seconds, i pulled it out as soon as I could and switched it off straight away ... it has been drying for almost 3 days now so really hope no long term damage has been done.
    I will update monday once Iv had it turned back on... nervous doesn't even begin to explain how I'm feeling!!

    Ok 3 days drying in the airing cupboard and have just turned it on....... all seems fine so far! Need to find a pin to swop the sim cards back over but done a few test and looks good!!!!

    You should be fine after only 10 seconds in water.

    These were in a little longer and were still OK...

    Glad to hear your iPhone seems to have survived! I've read multiple reports that the 6s has increased water resistance over previous models.

    Don't be surprised if you have issues down the road though.

    Pretty sure AppleCare does in fact cover water damage.

    No, Applecare does not. Applecare+ may. I don't know. But plain Applecare does not.

    OP has a 6s so AppleCare+ is the only option available. I think we generally just refer to it as AppleCare for simplicity.

    I don't. That only creates confusion. Just like the reset issue.

    Drop your phone into a sealable bag of uncooked rice or some salt. It'll absorb all of the water out of your phone and give it a better chance of living! Careful to not get salt or rice into the ports though.

    Sorry. I wasn't familiar with a difference. When I speak AppleCare I was talking about the coverage you pay an extra $129 for. Which does, I believe, cover water damage.
