iPhone taken down to 100 feet for 1 hour. Salvageable?

So I may of accidentally brought my iPhone scuba diving with me.


I was under the sea for approximately 60 minutes, with a max depth of 100 feet for a good portion of that.

Any chance the extended full submersion, short circuiting and pressure (4 atmospheres, approximately 60 PSi) didn't completely fry the phone and render it 100% useless?

Diver Dave, I would definitely give it a try. Do not try to sync, charge or to turn your phone on. I suggest you totally disassemble your phone by using [iPhone 5 Repair|these guides. Remove the EMI shields as well. Then clean everything with a high grade (90%+) isopropyl alcohol. Carefully inspect your logic board for any missing, charred or otherwise damaged components. Once done, replace the battery, the lightning connector and most likely your display assembly as well. Then re-evaluate. Let us know how it is going and post some images to see what it all looks like.
