My iPhone 5 got submerged in water. I put it rice for a few days to let it dry out in hopes I could get it to power back on at least long enough to copy my camera roll to my computer because I didn't already have it backed up. When I plugged the phone into the computer the battery light came on and showed it was charging. After about thirty minutes of charging the phone appeared to be powering on. The light came on and the apple logo appeared on the screen. An hour later the apple logo was still on the screen and it wouldn't power on further. So I tried holding the home button and the power on button at the same time for a few seconds to do a hard reset in hopes it would power on fully after that. But instead it went off completely and will do nothing. The charge light won't even come on anymore. I even bought a new battery and installed it thinking it would work but no such luck. It appears the phone is completely dead now. I was wondering if there is any possible way to recover my data from the phone? Thanks for your help.
