About iPad Water Damage:

Water damage in iPad is rare when compared to iPhones. However, with the aluminum body and glass screen, there are still some gaps where the liquid can get in and cause significant damage. Also, unlike iPhones, the iPad has no water resistance features. Therefore, if your iPad is exposed to water, you should turn it off immediately and dry it out externally as much as possible. It is always best to approach our repair center for a water damage service.

What happens when water covers your device’s motherboard? Why does liquid cause such problems for your device?

Electronics and water do not go well together. Components begin to fail; things stop functioning correctly, and eventually, your device will stop working if the necessary steps are not taken.

Liquid on circuit boards causes corrosion and oxidation resulting in the degradation of metals. Nothing good ever really comes of this. A circuit board corrodes just like a car rusts and eventually dies. Electronic devices suffer from various problems when liquid is introduced into their environment. The resistance between the components drops, metals break down, and solder joints deteriorate as corrosion spreads.

Corrosion causes pits and cracks in areas where electricity once freely flowed. In addition, the formation of metal fibers/clusters tends to occur, which bridges oppositely charged leads and causes arcing, or them to short out and fail.

The type of liquid significantly affects how quickly corrosion will spread. Fresh water is your friend when it comes to liquid damage; this is because they contain the least amount of corrosion accelerators compared to other liquids.

Salt water and chlorine are two of the worst types of liquid you can drop your device in. They contain elements that are heavy corrosion accelerators, which rapidly increase the spread of corrosion and kill your circuits. In addition, when salt water/chlorine drys up, they will leave minerals and deposits on the circuit board. These minerals will eat up the circuit board in a matter of hours.

With all our experience, the devices that have had the greatest success rate of surviving liquid exposure are those whose last contact was with fresh water.

A few tips if your iPad gets exposed to water:

FAQ's

Here are some of the most common questions customers ask about iPad water damage.

The chances of getting your water-damaged iPad repaired depend on several factors:

What kind of liquid was it exposed to?
The chances of getting it repaired are more significant if it is exposed to fresh water.

How long its been since it was exposed to water?
The level of damage to the motherboard increases by the minute. Hence, skipping the rice trick and approaching your nearest iPad repair center is recommended.

Did you try to charge your iPad after it was exposed to water?
Charging your iPad after it is exposed to water increases the chances of the motherboard getting damaged.

How soon can you bring your iPad for service?
The sooner you bring your iPad to a repair center, the greater the chances are of getting it repaired and limiting the damage.

The iPad 2 and later models have no water damage indicators on the device. The easiest way to check for water damage is to look for corrosion in the SIM card tray, moisture under the back camera glass, or any corrosion in the charging connector.

Unlike iPhones, iPads have no water resistance features.
