Step 1: Act fast, remove your iPhone from water or liquid immediately.
Step 2: Power down. Turn off the device if possible.
Step 3: Remove excess water, wipe down with a cloth to remove visible water/liquid.
Step 4: Eject Liquids. Gently tap the charging port and speakers with the phone in an upright position.
Step 5: Air it out. Let it dry in a well-ventilated and dry place for 48-72 hours. Do not attempt to charge it until completely dry.
