Does your friend know what electronics are? Cause that's a very stupid thing to do. Surround it in rice I heard to do that with phones when they get wet. Otherwise, make her pay for a new one.

Actually the sugar in the juice is the real killer, and most electronics can survive more water than you can imagine, especially if it's turned off. What should be done is to turn the IPad off, then slightly rinse it with water, and then put it in a bag with rice, to absorb the water again. My cousin dropped her IPhone in the river at night, went back in the morning to find it again, fished it up, dried it, and now it's fully functioning again.

In iPhones and probably iPads too, they have something inside them that can tell if water has touched it. It changes colour or something , and when they check it ( incase it was covered by warranty ) they would see that and the warranty would be void.

If the orange juice had seeped through to the display, then keeping it in rice will work but may leave bright stains on the screen. Lightly rinsing with water and then placing it in rice helps remove orange juice.

40, they don't need to open the device, there are small white stickers which turn red on contact with water. iPhone has one inside the headphone jack and one at the 30 pin adapter. now all iPhone users are checking for it i guess :)

It can be done no problem. You can put said iPhone in 2 layers of plastic bags and still use the touchscreen no problem. I personally have a LifeProof case (one of its 4 "proofs" is being waterproof) and I just put that in a small plastic bag to use if I want to listen to music while showering or taking a bath ;)

Usually, and correct me if I'm wrong, by the time OP posts their FML the deed is already done and therefore I don't think OP can take the iPad back at this point.
