hello, my iphnone 5s fell in water and now its try to turn on but keep rebooting. i have tried to put it in DFU mode but its not responding. what can i do please help me

ngekuh boniface - Reply

Have you ever tried any guide to recover your phone from getting water? If not, go for it. I suggest you using recover mode at first, as it has response on the screen. Turn on your phone, and when it shows Apple logo, release power button then long press the home button. If it works it will show "Connect to iTunse".

Hello,

I'm sorry but if your device is locked with an Apple ID, this guide will not help you. Only you can do is to login with the Apple-ID which is linked to your iPhone.
