iPhoen Water Damage? Skip the Rice and Bring it to Us! April 17 2017
The sooner you can get the water removed from your iPhone, the better. The longer it sits (even in rice), the more time that acidic water has to corrode the logic board. Rice should be a last resort. While it has been proven to be effective, the chances of saving your phone are greatly increased if we can remove the moisture immediately. We're doing the same thing the rice would do, but in a fraction of the time, which leaves less time for the water to do damage.
So, if you drop your phone in water, don't stick it in rice. Rush it to us!
