If you have unfortunately left your valued iPhone 6 Plus within reach of a toddler, you might tragically to find your iPhone in toilet because your toddler may think it a good idea to bath your treasured smart phone which you keep it handy all the time. Or it is yourself to blame because of your carelessness. Anyway various story in short, your iPhone dropped into toilet. What should you do?

Firstly, get your iPhone out of toilet right away. There is one thing that is terribly important which you have to keep in mind, never ever be tempted to have your iPhone turned on and check for damages. This will cause short circuit which will lead to long term and irretrievable damage. If the wet iPhone has a case, remove it; if the iPhone has been plugged, unplug it with carefulness.

To minimize the potential for short circuits, you’d better take the battery out.

Secondly, wipe the excess and exterior liquid off everything you can reach. Turn the iPhone upside down and give it a gentle shake to clear the ports and sockets.

Thirdly, try to draw as much water or liquid as possible from the drained iPhone. Never try to choose the hair dryer to dry the iPhone for this will probably cause the damage of iPhone’s internal components. Many people choose to bury the iPhone into uncooked rice, but it may get dust or even entire grains into the ports. Also here is better alternative which performs better in draining the moisture out of the iPhone than rice, silica gel. It is always packed with some electronic components, especially when it shipped from somewhere with humid climate. You need to collect enough silica gel so that they cover the soaked iPhone completely. Or you can buy it from craft shop. Silica gel sachets should dry a wet iPhone out more efficiently and less messily than rice. You should still give the iPhone at least 48 hours to dry out completely, no matter you are using rice or silica gel.

Fourthly, you can try dismantling the iPhone by unscrewing the bottom screws and accessing the interior. Unless you are confidently enough about your repair knowledge, never try it easily, since this will cause invalidation of any warranty coverage you've got.

Fifthly, after a couple of days you can try switching it on. If it still doesn't work, or if you want to get the internals checked out, you can ask Apple to take a look.

Finally, if you are lucky enough to have your iPhone came alive, you are strongly advised to backup all important data and files to your computer. If you are not that lucky, it is also necessary to extract important data and transfer to computer. You can achieve this by applying to third party iOS data recovery software, iFonebox, which can recover Contacts, Notes, Call History, Bookmarks, Reminders, Calendars, Photos and Voice Memos etc from iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as well as iTunes/iCloud backup file.
