Apple iPhones are rated IP67/IP68 and this means they can withstand being submerged in water at a maximum depth of around 1.5 meters. However it seems like Apple devices love water, we have seen how AirPods aced the water-resistance test and performed better than other devices with IP rating. Now an iPhone X has survived two days underwater after it was finally found, and the best part- it still works!
The Spring Lakes watersports is one of the top wakeboarding destinations in the U.K. The device was found by a team of professional divers. Apparently, a staff member of watersports park had dropped the device into the lake. The water was murky and this simply made it very difficult for the team to recover the device. However, the diver’s persistent efforts finally bore fruit.
Brad, the owner of the iPhone X was delighted when he got the device back. Thats not all, the iPhone X was switched on and worked perfectly fine even after two days in water. We have seen cases wherein iPhone X has survived more than 2 weeks in river water.

The divers run a YouTube channel by the name The Underwater Hunters. They go on exploring lake beds in search of stuff that other peoples have lost or dropped in the lake. Earlier, we have seen how well Apple devices hold when it comes to water. Gone are the days when a splash of water or immersion in the rain would destroy your iPhone.
