    Ok I did a very very very stupid thing and accidently put my ipad in the washing machine!
    Luckily it was only in there about 30 seconds before I realised and tried to rescue it.

    Obviously its filled with water. I turned it off straight away and its currently submerged in a big bowl of rice in attempts to dry it out.

    I know its probably a lost cause and expect I will have to either try and get it fixed or replace it.

    My main problem is that Im currently living in Wuxi, China. There is not an official Apple shop literally for miles (the nearest is Shanghai, and hour away) with my work schedule Im not sure Ill be able to get there anytime soon.

    Does anyone know if it will be ok to take to an unofficial Apple retailer? Or will I really need an Apple "genius" to help me?

    Any thoughts?

    Sorry that happened. I just want to add you may want to rinse the soap out of it before drying it out.
    It will leaving a film all over everything and could cause problems.
