[Solved]Anyway to Recover Data from Water Damaged iPhone.

The newly-revealed iPhone 7/7 Plus are rated at IP67 water-resistance (not waterproof actually),

which means they can resist water for 30 minutes maximum within a depth of 1 meter only if

submerged. However, for the previous models of iPhones, they are in fact not water resistant. Though

you might rescue it from water if it just drops into water for seconds, it cannot last even 30 seconds

longer and be ruined. Stories of this kind happened all the time as the following case tells.

"My iPhone 6 dropped into basin after I lost my grape while brushing my teeth. I got it out in a

second, but it works weird after that. Then, I rebooted it and found some of my contacts and photos

were gone somehow. Is there any way to get them back? Help! Thanks in advance. "

As a matter of fact, iPhone being water-damaged is already a bad news. It cannot be worse if it

furthermore causes data loss on iPhone. However, anxiety is no way to solve all the problems. Calm

down and read on. There are three feasible ways to help you get your lost data back on iPhone with

simple steps.


Facts: Normal Symptoms of a Water-damaged iPhone

Method 1: Restore Contents from iPhone without Backups

Method 2: Retrieve Data from iTunes Backup Files

Method 3: Get Files Back from iCloud Backup Files

Tips & Notes: What to Do if iPhone Fell into Water?

Facts: Normal Symptoms of a Water-damaged iPhone

Water damage of an iPhone can be caused by water and other liquids. Sadly and unfortunately, liquid

damage is not covered by Apple's warranty, which means that you have to be responsible for it on

your own. If you're not sure whether your iPhone is water-damaged or not, there are some common

things you can check for on your iPhone.

1. Buttons become less neat. Press and hold down "Power", "Home", "Volume Up" and "Volume

Down" buttons and check out whether they're working well. In some cases, users report that they are

unable to turn on or off their iPhone.

2. Hardware problems arise. Check for speaker, microphone and camera, see whether they're

working as usual. Moreover, if your iPhone is inclined to be overheated, it may be caused by some

hardware issues.

3. Screen tends to be less responsive or over-reactive. When using the iPhone, you may find it hard

to open an app or file. Swiping around is either not working sometimes. Or, apps/files might keep

opening or swinging as well as apps open without tapping.

3. You might be prompted by iPhone via warning messages like "This accessory is not made to

work with iPhone" or "Charging is not supported with this accessory." etc.

Method 1: Restore Contents from iPhone without Backups

There are two types of data available to directly restore from iOS device within 30 days, which

respectively are "Photos" and "Notes". If you've lost photos or notes on your iPhone, you can go to

"Recently Deleted" album/folders to check out whether they're there. If yes, you can select them and

tap "Recover". However, for other contents, iPhone doesn't support to restore without backups, so

you should try a powerful software to do so. Here let's try iPhone Data Recovery, which performs an

advanced scanning on iOS devices in order to access lost files.

Note that stop using your iPhone when it comes to data loss, for new data will overwrite old contents,

making them gone for ever.

Step 1. Connect iPhone to Software

Please download and install iPhone Data Recovery at first. Next, launch the program and connect

your water-damaged iPhone to it. The default feature is "Recover from iOS device", so you don't

have to change it.

Step 2. Scan and Recover Lost Data to Computer

After the connection, you'll be asked to choose certain items to scan. Choose the types of data that

you lost, for example, "Photos" and tap on "Start Scan".

Note that the more types of data you choose, the longer it takes to finish scanning.

When done scanning, you are allowed to check out the contents that are found via the software.

Deleted ones are marked in red with a small rubbish bin ahead. Then, decide which ones to restore

and tap on "Recover to Computer". Now, your files are saved and safe with the computer.

Note that you can use iPhone Transfer to transfer files to your new phone if necessary.

Method 2: Retrieve Data from iTunes Backup Files

iTunes, as the official software of Apple, enables users to make a backup or do a restoration. You can

connect your new iPhone to iTunes, go to the "Summary" page and click on "Restore from backup".

However, it will erase all the contents on your new iPhone. If your new iPhone has nothing stored on

it, it's okay to restore iTunes backup files to it. However, if not, let iPhone Data Recovery help you


Step 1. Scan iTunes Backup Files on Computer

Launch iPhone Data Recovery and select "Recover from iTunes Backup File". The program will

automatically scan out the iTunes backup files available on the computer. Then, those backups will

be displayed on the screen with detailed information like Model, Date, Size and Serial Number. Tap

one to "Start Scan".

Step 2. Choose Files and Restore to Computer

The software will scan out all the data included in iTunes backup. You can check out different item

from the left panel. Then, select desirable ones and click on "Recover to Computer".

Note that you can highlight all the files of the same type via double click > "Check All".

Method 3: Get Files Back from iCloud Backup Files

There is a possible way to get data back via iCloud. Once you bought a new iPhone, you will be

prompted whether to restore data from iCloud. However, if you already using the iPhone as a new

one and there are new contents stored on it, you might consider iPhone Data Recovery.

Step 1. Log in iCloudAccount

Open the software and click to choose "Recover from iCloud Backup File". You don't need to plug

your old/new iPhone to the computer. Now, type in your account and the software will be allowed to

get access to iCloud backup files.

Note that you need to download iCloud panel in order to download iCloud backups.

Step 2 Download and Retrieve Data from iCloud

Now, the iCloud backup files will be loaded on the program. Choose one and you will be prompted

to choose types of data to download from iCloud. Make your choices and tap on "Next".

When it finishes downloading files, you can preview them in detail. Check those you want to restore

and tap on "Recover to Computer". By the way, contacts, messages and notes are supported to

directly restore to device. You can connect your new iPhone and get files back to it.

Tips & Notes: What to Do if iPhone Fell into Water?

1. Get your iPhone out of water right at the second it drops into water. The longer the phone stays

in water, the greater damage it will cause to hardware. If you get it out of water in time, the damage

can be limited to the minimum. Even if you're using an iPhone 7/7 Plus, I bet you don't want to leave

it in water for long.

2. Do not restart the iPhone immediately. Most of the time, people would unconsciously try to turn

on their phones if off. However, don't rush to press down your "Power" button. Since reboot will start

up some programs on the background, it's possible to bring about the breakdown of the mainboard

with no luck.

3. Remove SIM card. This steps is to prevent your SIM card from further damage. You certainly

don't want your SIM card to be damaged along with your iPhone. Take it out of the slot and leave it

aside until it's dry and clean. Plug it in other devices and see whether is all right.

4. Dry your iPhone off via a hairdryer and a bowel of uncooked rice. You should rub your iPhone

with clothes in the first place. Next, shake it off (I don't mean the song of Taylor Swift) to get water

out as much as you can. Then, use a hairdryer to dry your iPhone off. However, don't let the hot wind

directly blow to your iPhone (especially the slots) for long due to the danger that it may melt the

circuit board and other parts. Lastly, put your iPhone into a bowel of uncooked rice, for rice is able to

absorb excessive water without damage.

After you get your lost data back on the computer, the next step for you is perhaps to consider

upgrading your iPhone to a new one. If you're planning to buy a new iPhone, you can resort to

iPhone Transfer to import the contents from your old iPhone to your new iPhone without a hitch.
