    I have just dropped my ipad into my bath, I got it out as quick as possible, will it be ok once it has dried out?

    Turn it completely off!!!! That means the red slider. And leave it al least for a couple days. But since the iPad is so closed up, I would leave it for at least a week. It should be fine but who knows with so much technology in such a compact device? If it were mine, I would leave it in a cool dry place for a couple weeks. Oh yeah, rice! (Why did you have it in the bathtub?)...

    Take a book next time lot cheaper to replace than an iPad. Unless it is a first edition or something.

    I've also heard, along with putting it in rice, that you should put it somewhere it is warm - like on the back of a tube TV. There is juuuust enough heat coming off of that kind of TV all of the time to keep it at a good temp. You don't want it too hot. Helps with drying the device out quicker.

    Actually if you look at the innards of an iPad (Google one of those iPad dismantling pages), you'll see that the electronic bits are quite small, with the twin batteries taking up most of the volume and weight.

    Been there, done that...

    @Sapper756:
    Me too, I did drop the iPad in the bath. :p

    So I placed it standing up and connector side down on a towel. Let it drip and after 3 hours I checked the results. Everything was OK, except the loudspeaker. Nothing, Nada.

    After a day I did heard the speaker very softly, so it was time to start using the iPad again. After 3 days the speaker had a healthy volume. No problems ever since.

    So Sapper756: you and I have the cleanest iPads on Earth! ;)

    Good Luck, keep us updated!
