Everybody knows that if you accidentally tip water all over your MacBook Pro or drop your iPhone in a pond, the best way to rescue it is to cover it in rice and let nature take its course, right? But according to a new viral video from an Apple Store employee, that's precisely what you shouldn't do. Colour me astonished.

TikTok user Karleigh has been working in an Apple Store for three years and, doubtless after seeing the state of Apple gear brought to the Genius Bar for rescuing, she made a short video, inspired by a doctor's "things I won't do any more after working in the ER” videos, pointing out the things she'll never do with her tech.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
