  4. Some people think that the phone is saved by doing so. But the game only begins. The interior is dried but there still is moisture inside. Which is important to remove because it is a big threat to your phone. What you have to do it to take some rice (Rice Sucks Moisture), it is a slow process but it’s worth it. Dip the phone in rice in a closed vessel and keep it in a dry place. alt='rice trick'A lot of people gets confused about the time that the phone has to be kept in rice for the moisture to be totally removed. So the answer is for approximately 62 hours (Almost three days) if you have to remove the moisture totally.
  1. After three days take your phone out of the rice and turn it on. 80% of the chances are that it will work totally fine.alt-'iphone in water'
