I recently had my iPhone replaced due to a sticky power button but had a few problems when restoring from my iCloud backup.
The second problem was a little more fiddly, and I still don’t really understand what the problem is.
The result was that my apps would start downloading and as soon as the progress bar filled, the app icons would flash white and the app would disappear.
Some data was not restored, for instance, apps that were removed from the App Store for legal reasons. I tried the suggested, syncing the iTunes, but that just gave me a new copy of the apps with all my app data missing. Thanks great tip, I had to replace my iPhone 5 (volume up broke) and the iCloud restore gave me the incomplete error.
All Smack's greatest songs and 24 previously unreleased live tracks digitally re-mastered with tons of photos, Smack history and much more! Here is exactly what I did, and what I learned from the process of saving an iPhone from extensive water exposure with the good old rice bag trick.
Dry out the iPhone as best as you can using cloth (t-shirt, socks, whatever is readably available) or an absorbent material. Use a Q-Tip if possible to try and soak up extra water from the audio output jack and in small crevices. Now with all visible water removed, you’re ready to stuff the iPhone into a rice bag (or a bag of silica gel packets, if you happen to have a bunch of those). Fill a zipper locked bag fairly full of rice so that the entire iPhone will be covered like in the picture below, then place the iPhone into the bag and seal it shut with some air in the bag.
Any type of rice works, but try to avoid enriched rice, the reason being that whatever enriches it leaves a lot of white residual powder in the bag and it will also get into the ports and buttons on the iPhone. This should work for almost every instance of severe water contact with an iPhone, though obviously for situations where an iPhone is soaking in water while turned on for 15 minutes or longer your likelihood of recovery is going to diminish dramatically. If water damage has occurred, you can always try taking the iPhone into Apple to see if they’ll swap it out or repair it for you for free, but without AppleCare+ the odds are fairly slim since the standard warranty does not cover water damage and accidental damage in general. Thanks for this useless piece of information, yes it may dry out liquid, but it aint gonna fix the corrosion that will eventually kill the phone. I can tell you first hand that putting your phone in a bag of rice is going to lower your chances of having a working phone in the long run. OK well I can tell you first hand I have revived 3-4 different iPhones from submersion by putting them into a bag of rice and letting them dry out for 3 days+.
If you happen to own an iPhone repair shop and have all that is required to immediately disassemble and dry out a wet iPhone, along with the tiny tools, glue, suction cup, glass, replacements when you bend or break something, then be my guest and do that, but the average person does not have that ability. The fact is, drying out an iPhone when it’s turned off for several days in a bag of silica gel or rice WORKS. I too, dropped my iphone 6 in the toilet, it is currently sitting in a bowl of rice and has been for 74 hours. Could anyone give me some advice on if they think it will work, what I should do if it doesn’t etc?
Note to everyone, don’t put your phone in your back pocket, or at least, remove it before going to the bathroom.
I dropped my iPhone 6S into my dogs bowl of water but I immediately removed it, dried it off and removed the case. Rachel, the best way to preserve your iPhone 6S is to dry it out completely before using it again. You can also try placing it on a fan (not blowing heat, just blowing air) for 48 hours or so too to help circulate air around it. My phone got wet by the rain (it was in my jacket pocket while I was driving a bike) day before yesterday. Corrosion is not too likely if it is removed quickly, aside from salt water or unusually hard water at least. Even though I’d heard about this before it was great to hear from someone that had actually had to try it (sorry for your stress when your iPhone got dunked though). You need to wait longer than a few hours, all electrical components within the iphone have to completely dry out, and depending on the level of submersion it can take days. But would her iPhone have dried out just as quickly or quicker in the open air inside the house just as well? I dropped my phonne in some water, did the rice trick and it now seems to be working ok….
My iPhone 5s, yep, the one with the glass face that breaks if you look at it wrong, or drop it to the floor from a distance of 6 inches or more, was SAVED!!! The iPhone 5s, with its broken glass face, and i am not just talking about a crack the upper left corner is missing, and this is nearly the size of a US dime hole in the glass.
I took the phone into the house, opened a bag of rice in the kitchen, and poured approximaetly 2 cups of rice into a cake baking pan.
I turned on the kitchen oven, to WARM setting (lowest setting), and then put the baking pan now holding the iPhone, buried in the 2 cups of dry rice, into the oven.
SAVING YOUR SELF FROM HAVING TO BUY A NEW iPhone because you are too forgetful to remember your new slim iPhone in your pocket in your hiking shorts….
The killer(if that wasn’t enough for you)is that my phone is an iphone 5c and i just want to know if its the possibility of my phone being saved…?
Your best bet for 100% restoration and data recovery is a proper cleaning by someone that knows what they’re doing. You can also try this: turn off your iPhone (or Android) and then soak it in 99% pure Isopropyl Alcohol for about an hour or two, then dry it out for 36 hours before trying to use it.

Perhaps the rice takes out moisture from the concealed air, and then the air can absorb the moisture more easily. One thing to note is that if you drop your iPhone into chlorine-filled water (for example; a swimming pool), then it is very unlikely that the liquid contact indicators will trigger.
My advice: you know those silica gel packets that come with new shoes and so many other things? For what it’s worth, what is most likely to have problems longterm is the power port and battery due to electrochemical corrosion from iron and copper residue. Shortly after purchase a friend’s iPhone 4 was dropped into fresh water and quickly removed. I to dropped my iPhone 4 in water like 14 months ago put in rice for 3 days then turned on no go so plugged it in and it came on in a couple minutes so if yours doesnt come back on try plugging it in. As long as you have the right tools (do NOT strip the screws), take off the backplate after the phone has been in the rice for a few hours (only iPhone 4 and 4S). If it falls in anything sugary (including alcohol, black coffee, diet soda, juices) you’re pretty much done.
One last piece of advice, and please take this seriously, if you do take the liquid damaged device to Apple, don’t be a dick to your technician. Based on the model number of your iPhone, you will be able to identify which iOS firmware file you need to download.
Refer to the table below to find out the identifier for your iPhone so you can figure out which iOS firmware file to download.

If you want to use iFonebox to recover deleted WhatsApp messages, undoubtedly, the first thing is to download and install it. The above are three different methods to recover deleted WhatsApp messages with iFonebox, pretty convenient and functional. If iTunes automatically detect new update for your iPhone, you don’t need to do those steps. Semua kesalahan yang ada di blog ini datangnya dari kesalahan dan lalainya manusia (saya sendiri), mohon koreksinya kalau dirasa ada yang salah. I updated my iphone 3G 8Gb with the latest software because it was updated but no network is working. Hi,thanks for ur timely reply,but I cant check the settings on my iphone to know th Firmware version bcos its only showing me a screen dat says dat I should insert a Sim card to activate it(although I inserted dis code to check *3001#12345#* but notin happend).What will happen to my iphone if i use 3.0 firmware to jailbreak it and thats not the firmware on the iphone???
I have update to the latest version using itunes, the iphone just has a picture of the USB pointing to an iTunes icon. So i tried to do a restore, but my newly installed itunes does not show my device in the list.
He might claimed it as unlockable, but not yet unlocked, because your iPhone still stuck at Emergency call screen. Once you've activated it, you can jailbreak iPhone4 using jailbreakme and unlock it to use any micro-sim card (include vodafone). I managed to solve them all so I thought it might help a few others if I described my findings here.
Wait a few minutes and then attempt the restore again while connected to a reliable Wi-Fi network.
The standard advice is to dry it off and stuff it into some rice, then cross your fingers and wait. Likewise, you’ll have much better recovery odds with fresh water than you would with salt water, simply because salt water is more corrosive. Each iPhone is equipped with several water damage sensors that turn red if contact with any fluid is made, and if they are triggered than the likelihood of free repair service is fairly slim and your warranty may be toast. That said, there are always exceptions, and sometimes the repair cost is reasonable anyway, so it’s always worth a shot. Subscribe to the OSXDaily newsletter to get more of our great Apple tips, tricks, and important news delivered to your inbox! With water damage it’s best to open the device and inspect the components to determine if action is required. I dried it off, then I tried turning it off but there were lines that were changing colors. While I was drying it I kept on accidentally pressing the home button and it was working fine (or by the looks of it).
Put it in a bag of rice or silica gel (those little packets you get in boxes sometimes) for 48 hours to 72 hours, and let it completely dry out. The key is to make sure the internal components are completely dried out, including the headphone port and hardware buttons. I have saved many iPhones from water submersions by following these tips, I recommend you do the same!
Keep pressing the home button and power button at once (for 5-6 seconds, I guess), the phone will turn off.
If you’re worried about corrosion for something like this, dry it out, then open it up. Something we can actually use instead of the run of the mill rumors and thinly veiled advertisments called articles but some jerk needs to call it useless.
Think about how long water takes to evaporate if splashed on a counter, and then think about how long water takes to evaporate in a small space without adequate air flow.

24 hours later it’s still in the bag of rice and I tried turning it on tonight and nothing… Do you think I just need to wait longer? I realized the phone was in my pocket, and then took it from my pocket, and handed it to a friend who was not in the pool.
Will I be able to save all of my photos and such onto another phone if I can’t turn on the original source? It has been in a tub of rice since last night but im worried because i tried to switch it on a couple of times as soon as i dried it down.. I had a rum and coke too close to my Mac keyboard and turned my head with earphones on and the cable poured the liquid into the keyboard (waste of rum). Take it to the store ASAP before any indicators are obviously tripped or corrosion settles in. Obviously, this husband wants to recover and access those deleted messages from WhatsApp on his wife’s iPhone.
Today, I want to show you three different methods to help you recover deleted chat messages on WhatsApp.
After scanning, you have the chance to preview and pick out those deleted WhatsApp messages to recover.
Actually the process is quite the same as to recover from iOS device after installation of iFonebox. There is no way to activate it, unless new jailbreak tool released (with hacktivation support). In the end only about half of my apps were restored – the rest appeared to be deleted. If the data that was not restored also exists in your iTunes library, you can sync it back to your iOS device via USB┬ácable sync as a work around. Once the homescreen appeared again, I immediately tapped on one of the apps that previously failed to restore. The patience part is the hardest, and generally the longer you wait the better the likely outcome because you want all water inside the device to be completely absorbed by the rice before trying to power it on again.
Soft drinks and sticky beverages will be more challenging as well since they leave more residue around, but as long as it dries out it will probably survive even if you dump a coke or coffee onto an iPhone. The cost of repair is almost always cheaper than a new iPhone anyway, so unless you’re ripe for a new subsidized contract it may be the best thing to do. I quickly grabbed it out of the toilet and dried it of with my jacket that was lying on the floor. A few minutes later the screen was black so i hit the power button quick to see if it was off but I accidentally turned it back on (I shouldn’t have done that) turned back on to the lock screen but few seconds later went to the lines again and shut off. The iPhone should be OK once it completely dries out, but don’t use it until it is entirely dried out. That’s probably why yours thinks its in headphone mode rather than speaker mode, it is still wet in there would be my guess. If you see any tiny metallic deposits, rub it down with isopropyl alcohol, then dry it out again. Both take a while, just have patience if you want your iPhone to work again after getting wet. I did however leave it for about 3 weeks; it may have not needed that long, but I was too afraid to try turning it on.
Robert’s protest of the comment, the water WILL leave behind dissolved minerals and dirt washed into the phone. Fortunately, Apple built in a fail safe that prevents you from turning the phone on until you plug it in. Instead I opened up a couple of those little gel silica packets that come in electronics packaging and poured the contents into a plastic bag and sealed it with the phone inside NOT touching the silica. Corrosion doesn’t kill components when they are dry, which is what this article prevents.
I immediately rinsed it in tap water and then following the instructions, followed that with a distilled water rinse (I had it for the steam iron) and all was fine when it dried out.
After accidentally dropping my iPhone for a swim into a pool of water where it was fully submerged, I had the unfortunate opportunity to test out the iPhone-in-a-rice-bag hypothesis, and I have good news; it actually works! I left my iPhone in the air-tight rice bag for around 36 hours, but there’s no harm in leaving it in for 48 hours. If all goes well, it’ll power on as usual, and your iPhone will have survived the water encounter! All articles, images, logos and trademarks in this site are property of their respective owners.
Its been in there for about 36 hours but I’m going to let it sit in the rice for about another 36 hours. Works with game controllers, phones, just about anything so long as it’s not an extreme case. Once the first app had succeeded all the other apps followed without me needing to tap on them individually. This has been proven in several experiments when dry rice, and even instant rice were compared to real desiccants like silica gel. We took it to the Genius Bar and they said they would be right back and took it in the back room.
