Repair dropped iphone in water

On the sea or in the pool in the iPhone came salt water
In the iPhone came salt water (dropped the iPhone into the sea or the pool)
Salt water more often at sea. I consider this case the most unfavorable for repair. Even in the absence of power to the device, severe corrosive processes occur inside. And in the final analysis, complete decomposition of the contact group of the device is possible. Microchips that are subject to this process are often not replaceable, since under them is observed the rotting of the contact areas of the elements. However, all this does not mean that after getting into salted water the device is not subject to recovery. Simply the nature of the damage is more complicated and requires a serious long-term repair.

Most likely the problem here lies in the untimely call to the service center. After all, the ingress of sea water often happens during a vacation in the resort. And in our service the device gets in the best case in a week. In addition to sea water, I would note the difficulty of restoring the device after the pool. Unfortunately, the percentage of recovered devices after sea water or the basin does not exceed 50%. Read more here:

IPhone fell in the toilet right into the toilet.

IPhone fell into the toilet (dropped an iPhone into the toilet)
Some customers are embarrassed and embarrassed to admit that the iPhone has fallen into the toilet. However, for masters such information is really a relief. Practice has shown that the percentage of reconstructed devices after getting into the toilet is very high. This is due to the fact that pure water is present in the toilet, except for waste of life activity, and the duration of immersion in the toilet is usually low. The only trouble in this case can be a special smell from iPhone. Therefore, professional cleaning is mandatory here.

The iPhone was spilled beer
Beer is also different. The most difficult to clean beer is dark varieties, unfiltered (live) beer. In this case, there remains a sticky frozen layer on the device board, it is not easy to clean it off. The moisture from the beer evaporates fairly quickly and damage, at first glance, may be insignificant. However, a sharp sharp beer smell will speak of another. Organic compounds remain on the surface of the motherboard and, in addition to smell, cause decay, mold and, in the final analysis, damage to the elements. Cleaning at the same time, as I said, is not the easiest operation.

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.
