iPhone 6 stuck in boot loop after replacing battery

I recently replaced my battery as my phone got a little damp I immediately powered the phone off once it got wet to safe it. When I came home I popped it open and dryer it off with a paper towel. The Apple logo appeared but then immediately shut off and the phone was unresponsive.

I bought a battery replacement off eBay and installed it. The phone now is stuck in a continuous boot loop. The Apple logo will appear for about 5 seconds and shut off and then appear again and immediately shuts off when taken off the charger. Is it a bad battery or do I need to restore my phone? Thanks

Because your phone came in contact with water, you really should properly decontaminate the logic board before doing anything else, otherwise there will be latent issues down the road.

The water is inside the phone, on the logic board and under the shields, even under the IC's. The real problem is the mineral deposits that can cause short circuits or the corrosion that is taking place as the water evaporates. Leaving the power on the device accelerates the process. The longer you let a phone sit, the more time you are giving corrosion to damage your logic board. The saltier or harder the water is, the more damage will occur. The water needs to be displaced, not evaporated.

  • Open your phone and remove the logic board (follow this guide)
  • Inspect the logic board, especially around the connectors and look for corrosion.
  • Inspect both sides of the board. Unfortunately, most of the board is covered in shields. That's usually where the damage is occurring.
  • Put your board in a container with >90% isopropyl alcohol and let it sit for a while.
  • Use a soft brush, like a toothbrush and lightly brush away any corrosion you see.
  • Rinse in alcohol and repeat.
  • Let it air dry for a day.
  • Re-assemble and hope for the best.

You have already tried a replacement battery. While it is possible that it is not good, the chances are much higher that this is related to the water.

A professional repair shop that does water damage repair may be able to recover your phone or the data because they have access to pro-level ultrasonic baths and specialized cleaners as well as the skills to troubleshoot your board. Many shops have a no fix/no fee policy so you don't have to spend money to find out if the phone is fixable or not.
