It depends if it can be saved ...

  • Did it get dried out ASAP?
  • Was it rain water or sea water?
  • Was it something other than water?
  • Did it get submerged or just splashed?

As to attempting to fix it:

You'll need to open it up and clean out any wetness and depending on what was spilled clean out the corrosion and if needed replace any damaged components.

Follow the IFIXIT guide to open it. Good Luck!

Forget the "Silica Gel Packets, Dry Rice or Other Water Absorbing Substance" these only work with humidity in the air not dunked phones!

You need to keep the phone fully off until you can remove the battery. Keep the phone as cool as you can just above freezing to slow down corrosion.

The important thing here is open and dry out the internals ASAP!
