Completely Shut down, immediately and put it in a bag of uncooked rice.Now you can Fix your iPhone If You Dropped it in Water….

On numerous occasions, your iPhone slips off your hand and accidently dropped in water. Your immediate natural reaction to this slip will be removing it out of water and then forcefully shaking and jerking off the water that it has soaked in those few seconds when immersed in water. In case of other phones, your next action will be to remove its battery. Here, in case of iPhone, sorry, you can’t to that. So for damage control, what should be your next step to be taken ?

iPhone water damage is one of the most common iPhone repair types we see. It is also one of the most deadly to iPhones if you allow corrosion. As the video shows, it is imperative to remove the iPhone out of the water ASAP. Once the iPhone is out of the water, you want to make sure it is powered off.

If you get a white pinwheel on the screen and it won’t turn of, you hold down the power button and home button until it turns off. In the video we failed to record it powering back on after we powered it off. We simply repeated the ‘power off process’ and moved on to the next important step; remove the SIM card.

Once the SIM card is removed you want to put the iPhone in an uncooked bag of rice. Tighten the bag so all extra air is gone and seal it.

If you follow the above above steps and mail the water damaged iPhone we can fix it as good as new. If you decide you want to see if it works for yourself, wait 48 to 76 hours after the water exposure and then try it out. If you find at that time it is not functioning properly as a result of the iPhone water damage put back in the rice and mail to us.

iFixYouri has made a short video to suggest users of what to do if they drop their iPhone in water. If you don’t know already, you should immediately power off the iPhone and place it in a sealed bag of uncooked rice.

For rest, take a look on the video:

    Professional carpet cleaning services are most definitely
    the process that may be employed to supply the most impressive results. They
    have the experience cleaning carpets and this suggests they can ensure the
    final product is something the home-owner or department dweller will be pleased
    with. Those that try and clean their own carpeting won’t have access
    to such hardware.
