Did you accidentally drop your iPhone 4 in a swimming pool? Were you unfortunate enough to drop your device in the bathtub? Has your iPhone 4 stopped working correctly since the incident? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, chances are your device has water damage. iPhone 4 water damage is a very common occurrence among iPhone users, and you will need to take your device to a certified repair shop so the device can be repaired the right way.
Have you ever taken the time to look at the manual that was included with your iPhone 4 when you purchased it? Even though the manual states that the device should not come into contact with water, many iPhone users haphazardly use their devices around water every day or allow their devices to come into contact with water. This is one of the reasons why iPhone 4 devices make trips to an iPhone 4 water damage repair shop earlier than expected.
There are several things that you can do to minimize the amount of damage before taking your iPhone 4 to a repair shop.
Dry the Phone
Despite what many cell phone users think, water is extremely corrosive. It can cause irreparable damage to an electronic device. Immediately take the battery out and dry the internal components of your device. Also, do not expose the device to any direct heat sources such as sunlight, blow dryers or other types of heat.
Turn the iPhone 4 on
After the device has dried completely, and you have reassembled the phone, try to turn it on. If it turns on without any problems, there is a high probability your device does not have water damage. However, if the device does not power on, more than likely there is damage to the cell phone and you will need to take it to a repair shop to have it restored.
If you want to be absolutely positive water has damaged your cell phone, check the moisture indicator near your battery. If the indicator is red, pink or any color other than white, your iPhone 4 needs to be repaired immediately.
iPhone 4 water damage is common, but it can still frustrate the user. A reputable repair shop can diagnose the problem and fix it for you in a short amount of time.
