If rice or silica is not available to you at that moment then you can put the iPhone in a well-ventilated and dry place.

There is a Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI) in all iPhones. In case, when iPhone got wet and came in contact with the circuit board then this indicator is activated and glow bright red.

So when you take out your iPhone from rice then check the red indicator whether it glows red or not. If you see the white or silver color of the indicator, then there is no water damage to your iPhone. If it is blinking red, then you are out of luck and your iPhone is damaged with iPhone.

Recover Data via iTunes

A water damaged iPhone can be fixed, and data can be restored if you have synced the iPhone with iTunes. Just connect it to iTunes and you will recover the last backup that you had made on iTunes.

If your iPhone had iCloud backup enabled before dropping the iPhone in the water, then you can easily backup your lost data from iCloud. With iCloud, you can recover the data like notes, contacts, messages, photos, and calendars. All you need to click the restore button from iCloud backup.

There was a great risk of damage when you dropped iPhone in water that may lead to loss of your precious data. Therefore, backing up your data regularly is the best solution to keep iPhone data safe.
