MYTH BUSTER - Placing your device in rice doesn't do anything to your liquid damaged iPhone. Rice is a food and not a substitute for the correct procedure for removing corrosion from electronic circuity.
You might be thinking that liquid damage is about the worst thing that can happen to an iPhone, and you’re right. Whether you’ve dropped your iPhone in a puddle, or suddenly found yourself the owner of a water damaged iPhone thanks to an accident with a washing machine, it’s not good news.
It’s a fact that all electronic devices, such as the iPhone, that have been exposed to water or any other types of liquid, suffer badly. Water damaged iPhones experience damage to their logic board, which is basically the brain of the iPhone – it controls all tasks, functions and parts. The battery, camera, LCD screen and dock connector can all be affected, and unfortunately, sometimes this is irreversible. The minerals within the water or liquid potentially cause a short circuit to your liquid damaged iPhone, by pushing a higher electrical current through the iPhone’s tiny chips and circuits. Liquid damage is, without a doubt, a serious problem that needs immediate attention.
