The Right Steps to Dry an iPhone that is Exposed to Water

iPhone Repair Services Jakarta - Smartphones are now an inseparable part of everyday life. Not only as a communication tool, smartphones with various brands and types are now increasingly sophisticated with various features provided. One of the sophisticated smartphones that are widely used and in demand is the iPhone.

This Apple-made smartphone is indeed popular, apart from being easy to use, the value of this phone is also fairly high. However, because the smartphone has become a part of life and is used for activities, of course it does not escape the risk of damage. The causes are various, one of which is wet due to exposure to water. Users can accidentally spill liquids such as coffee, tea or water and hit the iPhone that is being used. Or even the iPhone is exposed to rain when it is in a clothes pocket.

This of course will make users panic and worry that the iPhone device will be damaged. Some users may panic enough to be confused about how the first treatment can be done to overcome it. There are several tips that can be done to deal with a wet iPhone, here are some of them:

1. Clean the Wet Part

Keep in mind, the first thing you need to pay attention to when your iPhone is wet is to turn off the phone and avoid charging it. If possible when this happens the iPhone is connected to the charging cable, then unplug it immediately. When your iPhone splashed some liquid from some kind of drink such as tea, coffee, or soda, try to wipe it with a little water on the wet affected area only. But don't wash it completely. Some iPhone 7 and also the latest versions are actually designed specifically for water resistance. So, the possibility of damage is quite minimal.

2. Dry

The next step is to dry your iPhone using a soft, lint-free cloth. Try to use a special cloth such as a cloth for lens cleaning, so that the wet part of the iPhone dries well.

3. Remove SIM Card

To ensure that all parts of your iPhone are completely dry, you will also need to open the SIM card slot, then remove your SIM card. This is done so that the liquid that enters and hits the inside of the cellphone device can dry out completely.

4. Tap Slowly

Gently tap your iPhone in the palm of your hand to ensure that no water droplets remain on the device. In addition, this one step also helps the iPhone dry faster.

5. Leave iPhone in a Dry Place

Then, you can leave your iPhone in a dry place at the same time as drying it again by using the airflow from the fan so that any remaining water or maybe a device that is still damp can dry completely.

6. Don't Charge Immediately

After you dry your wet iPhone, let it sit for at least a few hours before charging it. besides that, avoid wiping the iPhone with any cloth such as towels, napkins, or others. As previously explained, dry with a soft cloth such as a special lens cleaning cloth.

There is another method of drying your iPhone that you can try, namely by putting it in rice or using silica gel. Rice or silica gel has the function of absorbing moisture and liquid particles that are still left on the iPhone device. However, of course you have to be careful in doing so, you should do the first method suggested by Apple like the steps mentioned above.
