Rain damaged my phone
My iPhone got damaged after being left outside in the garden during an overnight storm. Its screen is totally black now. Can I at least recover photos? Gary Smith The prognosis depends a lot on how badly it got soaked. First to go is usually the battery, shorting out when its contacts are immersed in water. This doesn’t necessarily kill the whole phone. After a week in an airing cupboard, with its back off, connect the iPhone to your Mac over USB; OS X’s Image Capture app may be able to import your photos.
