How to Recover Data from a Water Damaged iPhone

Water damaged iPhone 5S! How to get data from it?
I dropped my iPhone 5S into water. I left it for two days to dry out but it still couldn’t turn on. I have over 500 photos on it, though I have backed up my photos with iTunes, I can’t restore data back to my iPhone. I am wonder if there is a way to recover photos from water damaged iPhone?

Maybe you would be flustered when you are in such trouble. Please calm down and learn these three things firstly:

  • Don’t build on Apple Store. Apple Store probably won’t offer you any help with it.
  • Don’t believe it if someone tell you there’s no way to retrieve your data from water damaged iPhone.
  • Don’t sync your iPhone with iTunes even the water damaged iPhone can turn on. Remember it!

I can assure you iPhone data still can be retrieved after water damaged! Then how to do it? I don’t recommend recovering data with the solutions provided by Apple. Firstly, if your iPhone won’t turn on, it is impossible to restore data back to iPhone. Secondly, the restore data will cover all the current files on iPhone. Moreover, Apple doesn’t offer any way to recover iPhone data without backup. Therefore, it is highly recommend using Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery program to retrieve data from water damaged iPhone.
