iPhone 6 died after I put it in rice or did a hard reset(?)
On Sunday I woke up and headed straight for a shower, and as usual I took my phone with me. I left it on the chair under my clothes where I always put it so it doesn't get wet. Anyways, after showering I check my phone the first time of the day and left part of the touch screen wasn't working. I restarted the phone and suddenly I couldn't type all of my pin code due to this. I panicked so I decided to hard reset it. I think I did it at least three-four times. It still wasn't working so I turned it off. Suddenly a static noise was coming from it. I got scared thinking I might have dropped it in water, so I went to the store room and left my phone in a bag of rice for what I remember probably 2 hours.
When I went to get it back it was very cold as the store room is usually cold in the winters. And it wouldn't turn on and the noise it was making was gone as well. Now it's been three days and it still won't work. It's complete black screen. I've tried hard reset, volume/home and DFU mode. Neither work. Phone doesn't respond to anything. It was working perfectly prior to Sunday so I'm hella confused.
Anyways I have pictures of my firstborn, being in labor, getting my make up done for my engagement party etc. in albums and I hadn't backed anything up since April. If the phone is dead is the data inside it secure? What could it be? Apple said the warranty is broken cause the phone is slightly bent on the top, and they'll give a new phone if I pay. I don't want a new phone. Not as long as I have all of my stuff saved on this dead one.
Is this a good question?
