If your iPhone falls into the water, here are some tips

Not all iPhone versions have a water-repellent protection feature, so you should pay attention when you drop your iPhone in water to take the right steps.

Mac Felt magazine reported that older iPhones such as the 6, 6 Plus, 6S and the first generation SE do not have water damage protection.


And how to act if these models fall into the water, the German magazine explained that in the first step, the phone should be quickly turned off and dried from the outside.


In the second step, the phone is placed in a bag containing dry rice for 72 hours, taking into account that the bag is tightly closed.


After this period has passed, you can try to turn on the iPhone again. In this regard, Mac Felt warned against drying the iPhone by a hair dryer or by placing it in the microwave, oven, or stove; Since the components may be subjected to extreme heat, condensate water will develop.


As for the somewhat modern iPhones (as of the iPhone 7), “Mac Felt” made it clear that the phone should be gently flicked from the side, which has the Lightning port, downward on the hand, so that most of the water penetrating inside the phone is expelled, taking into account not to charge The phone is returned only after 5 hours, so that the Lightning port is completely dry.


It is worth noting that the Apple warranty does not cover liquid damage to the iPhone.
