iPhone 5s Water Damage Repair Service

iphone-5s-water-damageSplash! Of all the sounds that might be associated with iPhone mishaps, perhaps one of the most unnerving is splash. Mobile devices do not agree with liquids of any kind, and the iPhone 5s is no exception. If it gets wet, either from being spilled on, dropped in a pool, or flushed down the toilet, you can have some serious water damage on your hands. If this happens, take the following precautions:

  • Turn the device off: As quickly as possible, power your iPhone 5s down. As long as it is wet, there is a chance that it can short circuit, so leave it off.
  • Wipe it dry: Using a soft piece of cloth or a towel, remove excess liquid from the exterior. Do not use a hairdryer or oven, since those can damage your smartphone.
  • Take it in for repairs: Skilled repair technicians have the tools and know-how to properly clean your device and diagnose needed repairs. NYC Mobile Device Doctors can provide reliable diagnostics and water damage repair service at an affordable price.
  • Dry the inside: If you’re not able to get it to a repair center right away, storing your phone in a plastic bag with rice or silica gel packets can dry it out. The process usually takes 24 to 48 hours, so do not turn it on again until you are sure that it’s dry (and even after that it’s a bit risky). If you don’t have rice or silica packets, store it in a dry place with plenty of ventilation.

As soon as you are able, take your iPhone 5s to our professionals at NYC Mobile Device Doctors. The time and pricing of the repairs depends on the extent of the damage, but we do our very best to provide the most efficient service possible at affordable rates. If your smartphone was unfortunate enough to suffer water damage, do not hesitate to take it to our repair center as soon as possible.
