iPhone 6 water damaged data recovery

We get water damaged iPhones everyday, for data recovery. It is a shame Apple didn’t make it water proof and you would be surprised how many people do not backup their data, and only realise they need the photos on the phone after they drop it into water.

Lets get on it. Removed the chips that are damaged and cleaned, the pads on logic board.Yup, almost half of the chips are removed.

But how bad was the water damage? Let’s have a look at the underside of the chips.

Just for fun and test quality of the ICs Apple put in, lets clean them and put them back on

surprisingly, they still work fine!
