Unfortunately, the vacation period has ended and it was at the end of summer. the beginning of September in the service centers that the number of calls with the devices inside of which the water got increased. And even the presence of moisture protection according to the IP67 standard does not greatly change the situation. The Apple website on this issue is very vague in wording, but the main message is this: if the liquid nevertheless gets inside, then of course there will be no guarantee. Therefore, we strongly do not recommend going to the bathroom with the phone, taking underwater pictures, and especially dipping the device in the sea or ocean, since the process of recovering the phone after water, especially salt water, is extremely complicated and often lengthy, and repair costs can be equal to the cost of the device.
What to do if iPhone falls into water?
If nevertheless there was a nuisance and your device fell into the water, then in no case should you continue to use the phone. First, turn it off. Also, you can not charge the device. in this case, you can cause irreparable harm. If the phone has fallen into salt water, it is better to rinse it in ordinary water, since salt is a very good conductor of electricity, and as we said above, it is extremely difficult to repair such devices. Even if you have a seventh or older iPhone in water, we still advise you to contact a service center for diagnosis. Devices with protection according to IP67 standards are in no way immune to water ingress. There are frequent cases when the phone begins to behave malfunctioning only a month after contact with the liquid.

Features repair iPhone X after water.
Recently, we encountered such a problem: in the iPhone X in 99% of cases after getting inside the liquid, the Face ID sensor stops working. This is due to the fact that the camera module itself and the top speaker cable are tied to the processor of the board, which is responsible for the correct operation of the sensor. Under the number “1” you can see the loop of the auditory speaker, and under the number “2”. the front camera module.
Unfortunately, when flooding, one of these components is almost always damaged, and because of this, Face ID stops working forever. In official service centers do not repair devices after water. They suggest replacing your device with a new one for 45,000 rubles. But often this price is too high, and the real cost of replacing the device with a new one can amount to 10,000 rubles, which is not so expensive for a completely new device.
What is more profitable: change the iPhone or make repairs after water?
It all depends on the model. As we wrote above, repairing the iPhone X after water is not always possible, and exchanging for a new one will cost about 10,000 rubles. Repair of iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models after water starts from 990 rubles, the average cost is usually around 4000 rubles, exchange. 8000 rubles. The same amount will cost the repair and exchange of iPhone SE and models 6 and 6 Plus. You can exchange the seventh and eighth generation iPhone for 10,000 rubles, but the repair costs are different: iPhone 7 and 7 Plus from 990 rubles (an average of around 5,000 rubles), iPhone 8 and 8 Plus from 1,490 rubles (an average of 7,000 rubles) )
