iPhone X Survived Underwater for Over 2 Weeks

When Apple launched the iPhone X last year, the premium smartphone arrived with an IP67 rating that makes it dust and water-resistant. This essentially means that the handset is capable of withstanding immersion in up to 1 metre of water for 30 minutes. Interestingly, last year's flagship apparently has much better water resistance capabilities, so much so, that it can withstand being underwater for more than two weeks. A river diver seems to have discovered the extreme levels that the smartphone can possibly withstand.

A YouTuber named Dallas, who runs a channel by the name of Man + River, in a video claims to have found an iPhone X in a river. In his 'River treasure dives' videos, Dallas returns lost and misplaced items to their rightful owners. Usually, he claims to find wearables like silver rings, expensive sunglasses, masks, and more, but this time around, he discovered an iPhone X.

On his recent dive, Dallas found several objects ranging from Porsche sunglasses to a 10K gold ring. But finally, he came across a submerged iPhone X Silver coloured variant, that too without a waterproof case on. While many would expect the smartphone found at the bottom of a river to be damaged, Dallas tried to get the handset working.

The most important element is she said that she lost photos of her newborn baby. The big question is why? Does she not have iCloud activated?

Spotty coverage on the bottom of a river?

Does data travel through water?

Water blocks WiFi signals very effectively so it's reasonable to think it also does a good job of blocking cell signal.
