Recommended Posts


"An iPhone lost in a South Carolina river was found underwater 15 months later and still functions thanks to a waterproof case.

"Erica Bennett said she and her family were on a river float tour with Edisto River Adventures in June 2018 when her phone fell overboard. "

Even if they're not officially "waterproof", most modern electronic devices can be rescued after being flooded, because they don't have so many 'discrete components' these days.

The mistake that people make is to leave it for just a few hours, then think  "Ooh..... I'll just try it".


Leave it in a warm room for a week before you turn it on, and you probably won't need to buy a replacement.
