Since iPhones are not covered under any warranty for water damage, the only thing you can really try is submerging the iPhone in white rice for 24-48 hours.

During that period please do not take the phone out or try to use it. (Make sure it is powered off) Once the time has elapsed, turn the iPhone on and see if it is any better.

If you have any questions, please let me know otherwise if you can take a minute and use the rating system to rate our session as 5 stars and press Submit so I am credited with helping you.

What about warranty? How about waterproof phone cover don't they share responsibility?
Technician: Josh, Technician replied 11 months ago

No, the waterproof case company will replace the case itself but not the phone.
