Diagnosing iPhone water damage is easy. There is an indicator within the device that tests for moisture or water called a Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI), just behind the sim card. One can check the LCI for contact with water by removing your iPhone case and locate the SIM card tray. It is on the right side of the phone, just below the side button. Using a SIM tray removal tool or a straightened paper clip, press into the small hole at the bottom of the SIM tray and gently remove it. Shine a light into the empty SIM slot and look for a red color (this indicates damage). The slot is rather small, and you may need a magnification device. If you see white or silver your phone is not likely to have sustained damage from water. However, if you see red that means the phone’s LCI has been activated and that water or another liquid got into the phone, likely damaging it.
