bill just like any other device start off by turning it off. do not try to turn it on, to charge or to sync is. This could potentially make a bad situation worse since it could shorten more components on the logic board out. Disassemble your phone by using this guide. Clean your phone with 90%+ (or better) isopropyl alcohol. Use this guide to clean your phone. It was written for a 3G but all the steps are pertinent to your phone as well. Inspect your board for any missing or damaged components. Remove all the EMI shields to clean the board. Once properly cleaned, replace the battery and Lightning connector. After that reassemble and re-evaluate. Water damage is the hardest to diagnose and to repair since almost any part can have failed.

The best way to fix it is to open it up and dry out the liquid damage and clean the contacts and components on the logic board with 99% isophryl alcohol. Ribbon cables / connectors for example (look for white / green corrosion spots and burn marks).
