Computer Science: iPhone + H2O

It's a funny thing. We've created some of the most advanced technology in the world. Get packages sent to your door. Find out who won the baseball game last night. Even find some interesting facts. However, there one deadly threat to your computer in your very household. No, not your cat. Water. H2O. Why is this simple necessity to life so bad for electronics? Well, it's because water is a very good conductor. Now take the humble iPhone. What could water ever do to this electronic? Everything! There are some parts of the phone that can't take too much electricity, let alone any electricity. When this happens, the phone is electrocuted. If you do get your device wet, turn it off (hold the power button for five seconds). Take out the SIM Card. Put the phone in a bag of rice (uncooked) for 2 days. When done, turn it back on and see if it works. I hope this helps! Tomorrow: How to Pull Out A SIM Card.
