Thnx for useful reply. I did the aforesaid above and my iphone is working now. The problem I am facing now is the short life time of battery. After full charging, my iphone battery life is around 4-5 hours only. Kindly suggest any useful way to enhance the battery life time.

ajay, the table lamp will not evaporate enough water. You will have ongoing corrosion damage. I suggest that you using the device, (remove the battery) and totally disassemble it. Then clean it with +90% isopropyl alcohol. This will displace the water and stop corrosion. It it okay to submerge a board in isopropyl alcohol. After that, air dry all the components. Do not forget to clean the connectors on the board as well as the cables. Then re-assemble with a new battery This is not optional but a must to avoid failure later on. " Check your board for any missing or damaged component. Water damage is the toughest to trouble shoot and to repair. Hope this helps, good luck.
