How Long Can the iPhone 11 Last in Water

Chilliwack free divers Clayton Helkenberg and wife Heather told CBC that after they went into the bottom of a lake to look for lost items, they came across an iPhone 11. They also found a flip phone, but that was severely damaged, unfortunately. The iPhone 11, on the other hand, was in exceptional working condition, save for a broken microphone and some speaker issues.

“I took it home, cleaned the dirt off of it, and it just turned right on, so it was pretty amazing.”
