Bricked my iPhone 7Plus in the pool. At least I got a great photo.

From Apple support site:
...iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus have a rating of IP67 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 1 meter up to 30 minutes).

The iPhone was in just over 12 inches in the water for under a minute.
I have a backup iPhone. Swapped the SIM card out. Synched from iCloud. And was back in business. Luckily I had texted the below image to someone so it was saved.

Pool Season PSA:
DO NOT TAKE UNDERWATER PHOTOS WITH YOUR IPHONE. You have been warned.

I'm surprised that Apple hasn't made iPhones to IPX7 standard. That means they could be submerged up to 1 meter in water for 30 minutes. The added bonus is that effectively makes any battery swap or repair impossible since everything is sealed. Apple could have a consumer selling point while gaining even more control over its hardware.

Have the battery or screen replaced? Sounds like a bad seal

3rd party work means ZERO water resistance afterward

Did you read OP’s quote? The device is IP67 rated.

A Glad sandwich bag would have worked well in that situation.

The visual acuity might not have been as great, but it is an unterwasserfoto.

The iPhone 11 and 11 Pro are rated IP68 (maximum depth of 2 meters up to 30 minutes).

why is it bricked, did you exceed max depth or time? or it simply did not live up to that standard?

When they are brand new, never been dropped, never been worked on, bent, etc. There are plenty of reasons why the water seal could have failed.

Yeah, swim instructor for a long time, the nose holding thing needs to go. Teach him the humming trick.

Here in NY, outdoor pool weather is maybe 3-4 months out of the year. Can't get much practice in. His older sister swims like a fish. He'll be alright. thumbs up
