Can I retrieve iPhone photos from a water spill – iPhone data recovery in NYC

iPhone data recovery service in NYC

Have you made an oopsy with your iPhone?  Spilled a bottle or glass of water on it? Maybe it took a dump in a toilet or pool.  Whatever the case, we have the skills to recover your photos along with other files from your iPhone.

How do we recover iPhone photos and files from your water spill damaged iPhone?

We use component level logic board repair techniques to repair your iPhone to recover the files.  With iPhones, your data and all the information is stored on the logic board of the iPhone.  As such, with water and liquid damage, it is not possible like laptops to simply remove the hard drive to extract the files.  With files being integrated on the logic board chipset, we actually repair the liquid damage on the components of the logic board.  Once the logic board is repaired, we are able to recover the files from your iPhone.

Can’t Apple just recover your iPhone files after a spill?

That’s a big N-O.  Once the Apple Genius techs hear water or liquid, they are quick to not help.  Instead, they are ready to give you a replacement phone at a cost of several hundred dollars.  Don’t have an iCloud backup, too bad.  Apple does not perform iPhone data recovery nor will they fix your iPhone from a liquid spill.  Instead, you are quickly deemed out of warranty and out of the realm of being helped directly with your iPhone issue.

Will your iPhone work after our iPhone spill issue?

Well, in order to recover your iPhone, we do have to repair the iPhone logic board to recover your files.  However, our main goal is to retrieve your files so that we are temporarily fixing your iPhone to attain the files.  What does this mean?  This means that the repair on your iPhone is usually temporary at best and you should plan for this.  Yes, it’s possible that the repair will last and in some cases it does.  But, to manage your iPhone spill repair recovery expectations properly, you should plan on just a sole file recovery here.  Anyway, if you spilled liquid on your iPhone, there’s no telling what parts may fail next.

How much is the iPhone spill data recovery service?

We charge $200 for our iPhone spill data recovery NYC service.  That’s it.  If your iPhone is dead or not and you have water or liquid damage, that’s what the cost is to recover your files.  You may bring in an external hard drive or flash drive to recover the files or you pay buy one from us.

In some cases, the only part damaged is the screen.  If that’s the case, we would just replace your screen which would be cheaper than the data recovery service charge.  We always look for the most reasonable iPhone repair charge and if there’s a cheaper option, we’ll gladly make it happen for you!

What if we can’t recover your iPhone files?

Very easy answer, there’s no charge.  That’s right, we will perform the same work no matter what, but at the end of the day, we are performance-based like you.  We are on the same team.  If you’re not happy, neither are we.  We’re in this together!

  1. Hi !
    is it possible to perform this surgery on my old iPhone 3GS that I’ve kept in the drawer since I lost it when I plugged it in the iPod charger ?
    since I’m not from NYC, can I ship you the logic board from abroad ?

      Hi there, I’m sorry to say that we no longer support iPhone 3GS. I certainly recommend moving on and upgrading your iPhone. Sorry we can’t help on this one.
