IPhone 11 splash proof tested underwater for 8 months

CNET has done perhaps one of the most interesting iPhone experiments in recent

for several years - they tested the waterproofing of the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro underwater for 8 months.

For these purposes, the workers of the publication have teamed up withby Sofar Ocean Technologies - together they submerged two flagship Apple smartphones under water, attaching the devices to an underwater drone Trident. The experiment took place in several stages, the longest of which ended the day before. So, two smartphones of the apple company spent 8 months under water and, oddly enough, survived after all this! Both the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro turned on without any problems and continued their work as if nothing had happened.

Recall that Apple's official statement aboutThe water resistance of the iPhone is significantly different from the experimental results: according to the manufacturer, the iPhone 11 can withstand immersion to a depth of 2 meters for up to 30 minutes, and the iPhone 11 Pro is protected from water when submerged to a depth of 4 meters for 30 minutes.
