iPhone Oops

Dripping Phone

You can always say you jumped into the pool with your smartphone in your pocket, but we know that is not only not smart, it is also not likely. What is far more likely is that you dropped your phone in the toilet!

It happened to a friend recently when we were together and I learned something new and possibly very helpful. I’ll share it with you. 

A Bowl of Rice 

It’s not a dish. It’s a recipe for rescuing your phone. You can read all the details here: https://www.macworld.co.uk/news/apple/iphone-water-damage-rescue-soaked-device-rice-trick-3455144/  but it is really quite simple. 

Turn your iPhone off and place it in a bowl of dry uncooked rice. The rice should completely cover the phone and should be in a covered plastic bowl. Seal the bowl and leave the phone for three days. When you take it out if it still is not functioning, return it to the rice and check it every twenty-four hours. 

Good luck!

  1. I have heard of this solution and my sister has used it but I have been fortunate enough not to need it. Thanks for the useful information— we learn something new everyday day.

  2. It hasn’t worked yet. I plugged it into the charger last night and nothing happened. I’ll try again Sat. or Sun. and see.
