    Unscrew the two screws in the bottom and push the backplate up. You should then be able to remove it. Check if there are any broken connectors, and reattach+rescrew. I'm guessing one of the connectors popped out somehow.

    Or, if possible, take it to an Apple store. They should be able to fix it in a jiffy.

    I had the exact same issue. I took it to Apple, and they replaced it on the spot. This is a manufacturing defect. Apple products are under warranty for 1 year, so why would you tear the phone apart.

    Of note, Apple replaced the phone (not repair), so ensure you have a good backup of you current iPhone before you walk in there.

    Thank you for the help but I just did that and there wasn't anything unhooked, when u press down the backplate you can actually see the part that clicks go down like it was deformed; none of the water indicators have been activated
