Water damage is a simple way of saying liquid ingress. Water damage is the best way to get anything tech to stop working, and contrary to the rumors, putting it in rice does not help at all. When water gets into the device an makes contact with the mother or logic board, it causes electrical circuits to connect that otherwise wouldn't be which causes short circuits and premature failure. Water will also cause corrosion and other issues even if you could "dry out" the device - different liquids will have different effects, it's best to keep away from any kind of liquid.
