If you are unfortunate to ruin your iPhones or iPads with liquid, there are some things you can do, as well as some things you should not do, before taking it in for service that will help mitigate the damage therefore making the success rate of repairing it much higher.
Simple rules on do's and don'ts
(1) Do not panic
(2) Do not try to turn on your wet iPhone as this will cause more damage!
(3) Do not charge it as this will short out your iPhone's motheboard!
(4) Remove your SIM card and the SIM try
(5) Place your iPhone in a ZipLoc bag fill it with moisture absorbing material (the filler from the baby diapers would be ideal)
(6) Contact www.drmobiles.co.nz for advice on what to do
What are the chances of repair it?
The chance is 50/50 depends on how severe was the liquid damage, when it happened and what you do before sending it to www.drmobiles.co.nz for inspection.
It is wise to back up or synchronize your iPhone 5S or iPad Air with your computer/Apple iTune. There are times data could be lost as a result of liquid damage.
The longer you delay to get your liquid damage iPhone repair, the less chance you will have to get it repair (corrosion sets in, rust spreading, etc).
The Bottom Line
Whether you're mailing your device in or taking it some place local, if you perform all the steps above and stay away from the things you shouldn't do, the chances of successful liquid damage repair become much higher.
The last, and more important step, is to make sure that whoever you are entrusting to fix your iPhone, iPad, or iPod has experience handling water damage. Good signs are if the employees give you honest advice and an initial estimate after physically seeing it. I will typically do an initial diagnosis right in front a customer and point out problem areas that I can see off-hand. If I don't think the device can be saved or that a new one is a better option, I can typically tell the customer that right off the bat.
Any reputable company should be willing to help find the best option for you. If you don't feel they are providing you that service, walk away and try elsewhere.
