Repair iPhone after water (part 1)

Repair iPhone and Apple devices

Dear users of the our website, owners of Apple devices, private masters, amateurs and professionals. Today I’m offering you an overview of the problem, which can rightfully claim the title of the most frequent breakdown of such a device as an iPhone. It is about getting into the device water or other liquid. Strictly speaking, getting water can not always be understood literally. Often the cause of the malfunction is moisture, penetrating the phone through the audio output connectors, power supply or through the buttons of the device. Often you have to see the moisture penetration through the poor connection of the case and the display or back cover for the 4.4s models or 5.6.6s for body defects. So moisture or water? Let’s sort it out in order.

Water or liquid entering the phone
The liquid is different. I will give the most specific examples. In an iphone you can get: clean water, dirty or rain water, salt water, toilet water, beer, wine, juice, cognac, tea, coffee, machine oil, kefir, milk, etc. – these are all real examples in the experience of the service center . Now, more about each such case:

The iPhone got clean water from the sink
The iPhone got clean water (dropped the iPhone into the sink)
Unfortunately, even clean water promises great trouble to the owner of the device. Being under voltage of electric current, the device, into which clean water got into, quickly fails and inside it oxidation forms. Good in this case a little. But if your device is de-energized, for example, you immediately removed or disconnected the battery, then clean water will not do much harm and cleaning the phone can be successful. In addition, this device is sometimes enough to dry (under special conditions) and trouble will bypass you.

The iphone has got dirty or rain water
In the iPhone came dirty or rainwater (iPhone fell into a puddle, lake, etc.)
Here everything is the same as in the case of ordinary water, except for the fact that in dirty water, for example from a puddle or ditch contains various solid or organic substances, dirt. This dirt gets inside the phone and remains on the chips, the main elements of the motherboard, the peripheral circuits of the device. This device must be cleaned. If the time for operational cleaning and drying is missed, then it is possible to expect much greater damage to the device than in the case of tap water. As is often the case, when the inside of the apparatus appears mold and rot.
