if it was dropped in salt water than don't just dry out the phone
1.turn it off
2.unscrew the cover
3.take out the battery and put it in a bag of rice(airtight) for a day for so
4.if you know how to take it apart and have the correct tools (all screws sizes are also different in a apple phone) than take out the screen.
5.buy some isopropyl alcohol and fill a container enough to submerge the phone or its components.
6.place the phone in the container filled with alcohol, this should get rid of the corrosion if you leave it there for a while.
7.take it out, it should evaporate fast but put it on the airtight bag of rice for 1or2 days.
8.put it together, and get a new battery
NOTE: the screen will probably get some water in between the layers so replace it if possible.
FYI, alcohol will not get ride of the corrosion. It can stop it from getting worse because it displaces the salt water, but it won't get rid of it.
That sucks. first of all, DONT TURN IT ON. if u did, then ur screwed, it will fry the circuitry. Second, take the battery and sd card out. next, put the sd card and battery and the shell beside a sunny window and wait 2-3 weeks while the phone dries out. after that, you should be good to go.
