    If you’ve let your iPhone get wet, bring it to our repair shop! Our experts will skillfully repair your device, dealing with any damage caused by moisture getting into the casing.


    So you let your device get wet? Water can potentially damage the iPhone, and the extent of the damage depends on various factors such as the duration of exposure, the type of water, and the specific model. iPhones are not completely waterproof, but many newer ones have water-resistant features.

    Water damage can lead to various issues such as malfunctioning of the device, damage to the internal components, and, in some cases, permanent damage. Water damage may not always be immediately apparent, and problems may surface over time.


    If you are not sure about the water resistance of your smartphone, take a few important steps.

    1. Remove your iPhone from the water and turn it off immediately to prevent a short circuit.
    2. Try to dry the gadget with a towel to eliminate the risk of moisture getting inside the case again.

    And now urgently bring the gadget to the repair shop for diagnosis and possible repair!


    If your iPhone has been exposed to water, it’s essential to take immediate steps to minimize potential damage:

    • Turn off the device as quickly as possible to prevent short circuits.
    • Do not use a hairdryer or heat source – excessive heat can cause further damage. It’s generally better to let the device air-dry.
    • Remove the SIM card.
    • Gently pat the iPhone dry with a soft, lint-free cloth. You can also use compressed air to blow out water from ports.
    • Wait before turning it on. Allow the iPhone to dry thoroughly before attempting to turn it back on – this may take at least 24 to 48 hours.

    Can water permanently damage an iPhone?

    Yes, water can potentially cause permanent damage to an iPhone. The consequences of water exposure may include various issues, such as:

    • Functional failures: issues with buttons, touchscreens, and other hardware components.
    • Internal component damage.
    • Corrosion of the internal circuits and connectors over time impacts the overall performance and reliability.
    • The battery may start to drain quickly or not hold a charge.
    • Display issues such as discoloration, lines, or a completely non-functional screen.
    • Audio and speaker problems.

    Can an iPhone dry out on its own?

    The extent of damage to a smartphone after it has fallen into water depends on many factors. For example, the iPhone model, its tightness, the amount of liquid that got inside, and whether there were other types of physical damage during the incident.
    If you have a new iPhone model with a high level of water resistance, you can take a chance and leave the phone to dry on its own. But the longer the water stays inside the case, the more likely it is to rust. Water can remain in hard-to-reach places and destroy the gadget from the inside. Your smartphone may turn on, but it will work unstably, and in the future, it will break down completely. Are you ready to take that risk?

    What is the iPhone water damage repair cost I have to expect?

    A lot depends on the extent of the damage. For water damage, Apple doesn’t typically cover it under warranty, even if you have AppleCare+. The Repairs Bay team offers prices within the range of $200 for iPhone { lineup to $275-300 for iPhone 13.

    Can I dry my phone with a hair dryer?

    Using a hair dryer to dry a wet phone is generally not recommended. While it may seem like a quick solution, the heat from a hair dryer can potentially cause more harm than good. Here’s why:

    1. Excessive heat. Hair dryers can produce intense heat, which may lead to further damage to the internal components of your phone. The heat can cause delicate circuits to malfunction or even melt.
    2. Pushing water deeper. The forced air from a hair dryer might push water deeper into the device, reaching areas that were initially unaffected. This can exacerbate the damage.
