iPod’s are a highly popular portable media player with many iterations, including the iPod Classic, iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, iPod Mini, and iPod Touch. They have the ability to store music, and in some cases photos and videos, on internal memory in the form of an internal hard drive or flash memory. In the event that your iPod gets wet, there is a good chance you can save your investment if you respond to the situation quickly.
Turn the iPod Off - Whether your iPod has had a little liquid spilled on it or has been completely submerged, the first step you should take is to power off the device if it is on. This will help protect the circuits inside. Most, but not all, electrical components won't be damaged by water if they do not have any power going through them. By turning the device off, you have the best chance of avoiding any real damage. In addition, do not attempt to charge the device at any point while trying to fix your wet iPod.
