I got an email today from my brother who said that his iPhone had gotten wet. There’s definitely hope for it, but it was an important reminder that the best thing to do when a computer, phone or other device meets potentially disastrous liquid consequences is to turn it off and leave it off.
The worst thing that can happen is that if you turn the device on while it’s still wet, it may short circuit because the electricity + water = bad. Advice ranges from using low heat to putting the device in rice to help suck out the moisture. Neither will hurt it, but the best advice our techs can give is to simply leave the affected device off for 3-5 days.
