Well, the first question would be did you submerge your phone in rice for a couple days and does the phone still function?

If the phone does not turn on, then you most likely have a display problem if the screen is bubbling. If I were you, I would replace the screen display. Here is the link to that page: iPhone 5s LCD Screen and Digitizer Full Assembly

I also use this guy on eBay for a lot of my parts. He is very reputable and trusted:

I have completely submerged my iphone 5s in water, was working for about 1/2, then switched off, will not turn on only shows a low battery, then the apple logo appears with a white background. The screen goes black with white lines. Can this be fixed?


Do not try to turn it on again. Take the screen off the iPhone and Immediately submerge the iPhone in 70-90% isopropyl alcohol for a good hour. Then take the iPhone out of the alcohol and let it air dry for a good 1-3 days. Once you do this, then you need to replace the screen and the battery. This has a success rate of 70-80% so if it doesn't work, then don't be discouraged.
