I dropped my iPhone in the lake. It was in four feet of water for maybe 10 minutes. I got it out. Dried it out in a baggie with some silica packs I had laying around. It worked briefly. Then went black and now lights up and shows me my lock screen. The dialogue box showing in the lock screen says it needs updated before it can make or receive calls or use data. If I plug anything into it, it says "unlock phone to use accessories." When I use a search box on my Apple TV it tries to bring up the keyboard on the phone (but the screen is locked). The touch screen is fried, doesn't work at all. I can get it to the lock keypad with the button but the screen doesn't work like I said. The back on the phone had some cracks in it so I'm sure it wasn't water resistant. I suspect it's shot, and I think it was backed up the night before I dropped it. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this sort of thing. What's the likelihood of being able to get into it simply to salvage pictures if they weren't backed up. I'll get a new phone. That doesn't bother me but if it turns out not to be backed up wondering how much effort to put into recovering pictures etc.
