iPhone and a bit of Rain

Filed under: Uncategorized — Davanum Srinivas @ 5:29 pm

Last week we were at the Animal Kingdom down in florida we ran into a bit of rain. I quickly wore a rain jacket and transferred the iPhone to the more drier pocket of the rain jacket, but the iPhone got a bit wet anyway. The iPhone shut off by itself and i could feel the battery draining. Back at the hotel, after a bit of research, found that thankfully the sensors had not tripped. I popped open the sim card and dried it with a hair dryer for about 5-10 mins and dropped it into a snack bag with rice. Left the iPhone alone for a couple of days with periodic drying with the hair dryer and it’s now working as well as it was. Whew!



  1. Wow super cool. The rice I take it helps to dry out.

  2. Glad you got it working, you’ve did the best thing you could of done!
    Usually cell phones shutoff automatically when wet, and what most people do wrong is try to turn it on right away to see if it works: but when they turn it on it fries the circuit.
    Always try to dry it out as much as possible before trying to turn it back on, even if it means not having a phone for a couple of days. No matter what, you don’t want any humidity entering in contact with electricity 🙂
