In recent years, one of the changes that Apple has introduced in its iPhones has been the water and dust resistance. Although most of the time this feature goes unnoticed, we feel a great relief when, accidentally, we drop our phone into the water.
This is possibly what the owner of an iPhone X that has been rescued by some UK divers from the bottom of a lake in perfect condition.
Although the water resistance of the iPhone X and other high-end smartphones indicate that the device can withstand 30 minutes submerged at 1 meter deep, This iPhone X greatly exceeded this brand by being a couple of days at the bottom of the lake.
Divers discovered that the phone was in good condition and that the screen lit to show that the owner of the phone had a missed call from his grandfather.
According to the diver who found the phone, Anthony Hanstock, «We had made a small plan on this grid. But I got a little off track and when I hit the bottom, I noticed the phone. I grabbed it and pressed the button and it lit up. The screen lit up and he had a missed call from his grandfather ».
The phone belonged to Brad Beech, a staff member who worked at the lake and who dropped it a couple of days ago. According to Beech, this finding saved him around the 800 pounds that a new iPhone would have cost him.
