The not-so-water-proof iPhone X - Liquid Damage repairAs the photo shows, this phone came in with no other damage, and having never been opened or repaired before. The customer said that the device was merely splashed with some water.
Luckily, we were able to get this one back up and running with a full strip down and thorough cleaning.
The iPhone X and proceeding models, are water-resistant, not waterproof. Its important to consider that these phones can probably be submerged in water when they're straight out the box, but over time as they wear and bend, they can lose their water tight seal.
We always re-apply new adhesive to iPhone X's when we repair them, but it's important to note that they will never again be fully water-resistant once they've been damaged and/or repaired.
