There are two main ways that water can damage your iPhone. They are:
1. When your iPhone comes into contact with water or another liquid, an electrical short circuit can occur. A short circuit is anything that lets electrical current to travel along a path that was not originally intended. An iPhone logic board has thousands of complex circuits. With thousands of possible short circuits, damages caused by water can be varied.
2. As the water in the iPhone begins to evaporate and it dries out, the small particles that were in the water remain behind. Then small deposits of residue begin to cause corrosion in your iPhone. The residue and corrosion block important connections and create new current paths. What is worse is that the corrosion can grow and affect other functions of the iPhone as time goes by. The result is iPhone damage.
Drinking water has acceptable amounts of contaminants such as lead, mercury, arsenic, various minerals, and others. The minerals and ions found in tap water can be corrosive to an iPhone. If an iPhone was exposed to purified water, there would not be a problem with water damage.This is because purified water is water that is mechanically filtered or processed to be cleaned for consumption. Distilled water and purified water have been the most common forms of purified water. Distilled water is water has many of its impurities removed through distillation. Deionized water is water that has the ions removed. Deionized water can be used for electronics to avoid the affect of contaminant ions on the electrical functions. It is also used by some to clean electronic components. Purified water(deionized water) does not conduct electricity. It is the contaminants in water that conduct electricity. These are referred to a ‘free electrons’ and are the minerals that conduct electricity through water. These minerals also cause corrosion on an iPhone’s logic board. This is why you have to purchase a ReviPhone Kit. It tells you how to fix a water damaged iPhone. Salt in water is the most common mineral that can cause corrosion to a dropped iPhone in water. The salt causes a white powder to form on your logic board.
I was walking along the beach and I accidentally dropped my iPhone in the surf. Oh no, an iPhone in water! I immediately picked it up. What do I do for a water damaged iPhone? Some people believe that you can put your wet iPhone in a container of rice to remove the moisture in it. The problem with that solution is that it does not take care of the corrosion that has spread onto the internal components of your iPhone. The erosion can bridge the connections between components of the logic board. This, in turn, causes temporary and often permanent damage to your iPhone. If using rice is not the solution, then what is? The solution is to use ReviPhone spray because it aids in cleaning all the terminals and components, and eliminate the corrosion on them. This corrosion is caused by the impurities found in the water that got into your iPhone. Salt water is especially harmful to an iPhone. Coffee, tea, milk, juice, soft drinks and other liquids spilled on your iPhone can be worrisome as well. Let us help you with your iPhone water damage repair. ORDER the ReviPhone Kit NOW! You will be pleased with the results.
Ever hear people say "If it gets wet, just put it in a bag of rice to suck out the moisture"? Well, even if you put your iPhone in a bag of rice for weeks (or even months... It won't get rid of the corrosion that has spread all over the internal parts of your iPhone. That's why even if it's completely dry, the corrosion can still bridge connections between components of the logic board causing temporary and often permanent damage to your iPhone 3, 4, 4s or 5.
Our REViPhone spray helps clean all the terminals/components and ensures that they are free of any corrosion. You can see the difference in the before and after images above.
The corrosion that you see in electronic components such as your iPhone 3, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s and iPhone 5 is caused by the impurities in the water that got inside your phone. This is why salt water is especially bad for your phone.. Even worse is soft drinks and coffee. But, I am guessing if you are on this site, there's a good chance your iPhone has taken a bath in your toilet (We find it's usually the case).
Basically 100% pure water (deionized water) is safe for electronics and is used by some to clean electronic components. Well enough with the talk of corrosion as I'm sure you're ready to repair your water damaged iPhone.
