During a sailing trip last week, my iPhone got wet and...well…it is no longer of this earth. It was just a few drops of water, I thought. But by the time I got home, it was acting up.
The iPhone front display had all these strange images in the background. It looked like a black and white version of a tie-dye t-shirt. The charge life went from zero to 100 and then back to zero.
