iPhone 5 coffee spill. Will it survive?So — This just happened. It was a full cup. Which I spilled right over my one week old phone. Stupid, I know. Is this a sign I made the wrong choice?
Anyway: I got it out real quick and wiped it dry. But I haven’t done any tricks with rice or anything. Everything seems to work just fine for now, but that doesn’t mean I’m over the bridge. Liquid often screws up electronic devices over time. I’ll update this post in a week. Insert strong word here.
Update, 1 week after the incident: Everything is still fine.
