iPhone 5 Meets Puddle

December 3, 2012

One downside of our recent relocation to Oregon: rain. And the other day the disadvantages of wet weather hit all too close to home, as my precious iPhone 5 fell into a puddle as I was exiting the car. Completely submerged.

Apple electronics meeting water is something I’ve dealt with before, and so this time around I employed the tip of burying a wet iPhone overnight, in a bowl of rice. The Speck case proved to be good protection. And so about twelve hours later, the iPhone powered on fine.

So far, so good. Good thing I had that bag of rice handy.
