How can I find an iPhone repair near me? Thinking this out loud are we? This has happened countless times and I don’t mean just to you but to everyone who owns an iPhone. Ever since the 7 and higher models came out, upgrading to the latest models hasn’t really been a piece of cake for everyone. This is primarily due to their hefty price tag. A lot of us are stuck with older models of iPhones such as 6, 6plus and 6S.
Not everyone around us owns the IP67 rated Apple devices and so for them reading this post becomes even more important. If you dropped your iPhone in the water you are going to need to exercise caution and be very quick in taking it out of it. Chances are that if you dropped it and took it out immediately, your phone will have sustained minimal or no damage at all. But if you let the water seep in or were unaware when it fell down from your pocket and into the pool, you could face some serious expenses while getting it repaired.
In that case, you will be better of trying out these emergency tips on your own. These will help you dry out your wet phone and fix practically any damage that may have occurred.
Reasons For Water Damage To Your iPhone
Before we get to the corrective measures, let’s see what all could possibly cause water damage to your iPhones.
- Your phone slipping out at the beach
- Fell in the toilet (Yuk!)
- Slipped out of your hand at the neighbor’s pool party
- Fell into a beer glass
- Got wet in the rain
- Soaked at the water park ride
- Trying to take underwater photos (even when you knew you shouldn’t)
No matter what the reason is, it can still be repaired and you shall begin with:
First thing is to get the iPhone out of the water! Remember, to never plug it in like that. A waterlogged iPhone should never be turned on as this can cause short circuits. Take the SIM card out of the wet iPhone. Remove the battery but do it only if you’re confident about your DIY skills and if you don’t care about voiding the warranty. Dry the phone under the fan and wipe it carefully and thoroughly to avoid damage to its key components. Put the phone upside down on a flat surface and give it several light taps. Now pick it up and give it a gentle shake. This will clear out the ports and sockets.
Power Off The Device
Avoid activating the circuits inside your iPhone. Turning the phone on might cause long-term damage. If the iPhone is already switched off, leave it that way. If your device was switched on or if you happened to put it in sleep mode when it fell in the drink or the pool, you will have to wake it up and turn it off. This is essential but risky since it will make the use of the touch screen. If your device was in Airplane Mode when it fell in the water, or if you are otherwise certain that nothing will wake up the screen or you will receive no notifications in the next 48 hours, you should just leave it alone. Try these tricks immediately after you take your cell phone out of the water.
