Apple: Don't put your iPhone in rice when you drop it in water

There is a myth that rice helps dry a phone that has fallen in water.

But this has been refuted by Apple, which in its latest released guidance warns that a wet iPhone should never be placed in a bowl of rice

The company says that placing a wet device in a bowl of rice can cause additional damage if small particles of rice enter the phone.

The announcement states that you should not practice other tricks on the Internet such as using external heat sources, i.e. drying with a hair dryer, or cleaning with ear pins.

Experts say that letting the iPhone dry at room temperature is the single most effective method.
