Question: My iPhone X is water damaged.. what can I do?

I used my iPhone X for pictures in a pool below 3 ft. I've used my iPhone 7 Plus in the past, even SUBMERGED and it was fine.. but iPhone X which is a lot more expensive is also a lot more sensitive. Lesson learned...

What are your suggestions? Do I just need to buy another phone? Or can I be covered under any form of replacement or warranty?

I am also in vacation right now, I bought my iPhone in Canada and I am currently in the USA. Does the place/country I purchased the phone from matter, when it comes to replacement/warranty?

Thank you.

iPhone X, iOS 11.3

You warranty does not cover water damage. The claim is that iPhone is water resistant, not waterproof.

You need to have bought Apple care + to cover up to two incidents of water damage.

But as an extention to the Warranty, it must still be activated in the country from where it was first purchased.

It is far to late to consider anything that nature, if it should be considered at all.

The corrosion will have begun to take effect though the extent and timing of the effects is unpredictable.

Rice leaves dust and debris and only the small packets of silicon may have some benefit.
