iPhone 5s Data Recovery

This was a case of a fully submerged iPhone 5s in the toilet. Toilet phones are something we deal with often. The customer had the iphone in rice for a few days which did not help remove water or corrosion. Data recovery on this device was important because of the value of the photos. Our soldering technician cleans the board with dedicated equipment and chemicals to remove any liquid or corrosion. Once clean the board components are inspected for damage. In this case after the cleaning the board did come on, but the image was blurry and the touch on the phone did not work. The digitizer FPC connector was replaced along with components on the back of the board that were also related to touch. Once repaired our technician was able to sync the phone to itunes and make a complete backup of the phone so that it could be loaded on to the customers new iphone.
