Gearheads get their spudgers into an iPhone 11 Pro Max: Bi-lateral charging, anyone?

Jess--

I once had a spare nokia that had been deep fried (literally in a chip fryer) for 10 minutes.

after opening it up and mopping up the oil it powered up and worked perfectly, the screen looked a bit odd thanks to the oil between it and the backlight but it was perfectly usable.

never did get rid of the smell though.
