Those condensation wallpapers are everywhere these days. But when you wake up to see that life has imitated art—yep, there's a bit of water underneath your screen—don't panic.
There's an easy fix for killing the condensation without taking apart your phone (and voiding your warranty!). Just ask blogger Darian Cabot, whose iPhone woke up with a steamy camera lens.
It turns out that you can use the same process to zap away the condensation as you would to dry out drowned gadgets:
Leave it in a bowl or baggie of rice overnight.
If your phone takes a deep dunk into water (or worse!), we've shown you that you can leave it overnight in a bowl of dry, uncooked white rice to hopefully save its life.
But even if your mobile isn't on its deathbed, you can use that rescue trick to quickly suck up any condensation. The rice acts as a desiccant, a substance that induces a state of dryness in the nearby vicinity. A packet of silica gel (like the ones you throw out of new running shoes) should also work well.
