I dropped my iPhone 4S in a puddle.

After a few days in rice everything was fine, except the battery life sucks and as soon as I power the phone off (completely) the apple logo appears and it turns on once again.

This means that I cannot replace the battery as the phone must be off to replace it.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

  • If memory serves, iPhone 4S opens from the back, so theoretically you could just take off the back cover and unplug the battery even with the phone on. Im pretty sure I've done this a few times in the past. – Vitalydotn Jul 17 '17 at 19:07

This happened to me once, after I got the charging port wet on my iPhone 4s.

I was able to power down my iPhone by having it connected to a power source while going through the shutdown sequence. It would then remain off even if I unplugged the cable.

Of course you could simply let it drain all the way down, especially if battery life is as awful as you say.
