    Last night I dropped my iPhone in the bath. I had just started to run the water so it was very shallow and the phone was not submerged- it was in the water for about 1 second.

    After I dried it everything worked well. However the sound did not work and when I tried to turn it off, it kept turning back on again.

    I left it overnight in a bag of rice and luckily it charges properly, the sound is back and it seems that everything works well.
    However I'm really paranoid that it will just suddenly explode or die without warning! My other iPhone also suffered the same circumstance but it died instantly.
    Help!

    There's nothing really we can do to help, you've done the best thing by leaving it in rice overnight but beyond that it's going to come down to luck. Leave it turned off whenever possible and put it in a fresh bowl of rice tonight, and start praying that you've avoided any permanent damage.

    If it does die, a waterproof phone sounds like a worthwhile purchase if you've bricked two iPhones in the bath already.

    Thank you for the advice!

    Put it in a bowl of rice and completely cover it. It should absorb up all the water and it may still work. It sounds stupid but it works in some cases
