Water Damaged Phone When Charging Stays On White Screen w/ Apple Logo

I dropped the bottom half of my phone in tea last night, it charged fine for about an hour and then wouldn’t charge, so I left it in rice overnight. This morning it was dead, but this time when I plugged it in it showed it was charging and then the white screen with an apple logo showed up. However, it has been stuck on the white screen for 3-4 hours and will not turn on. Is this fixable or due to the water damage should I look into purchasing a new phone?

Thanks!

It’s never a good idea to charge a water damaged device, nor is it a good idea to leave it in rice, as rice does nothing to help your phone.

The proper way treat a wet phone is to do the following:

  • Open your phone and remove the logic board (follow this guide)
  • Inspect the logic board, especially around the connectors and look for corrosion.
  • Inspect both sides of the board. Unfortunately, most of the board is covered in shields. That's usually where the damage is occurring.
  • Put your board in a container with >90% isopropyl alcohol and let it sit for a while.
  • Use a soft brush, like a toothbrush and lightly brush away any corrosion you see.
  • Rinse in alcohol and repeat.
  • Let it air dry for a day.
  • Re-assemble and hope for the best.

You should also replace the battery if it has swollen. Resist the temptation to pop it to let the gas out. A compromised Li-ion battery is a fire hazard. If the device appears to power up but behaves erratically, then use a tool like 3uTools to flash the firmware as it may be corrupted.

A professional repair shop that does water damage repair may be able to recover your data because they have access to pro-level ultrasonic baths and specialized cleaners as well as the skills to troubleshoot your board. Many shops have a no data/no fee policy so you don't have to spend money to find out if the data is recoverable or not.
