IPhone 8, which fell into the River Thames in England, was found 2 months after it fell into the river and was removed from the river. The phone with IP67 certification continued to work after being removed from the water.
When you drop your smartphone into water, you probably think it will no longer work. However, this is not always the case. An iPhone that fell into the river in a case in England continued to work after being submerged for 2 months.
The woman named Thayse Bussolo-Vieira, who fed the swans by the River Thames in London last February, dropped her phone to the river. Of course, the woman, who could not follow the phone in the river, returned to her home sadly. Bussolo-Vieira, walking with his fiancee on the banks of the River Thames 2 months later, found the iPhone 8, which he dropped in the river two months ago, lying under the water.
As the phone stood at about 2 meters from the water, the couple went home and prepared an amateur rescue equipment by installing a strainer on the end of a bar. The couple, who used another support stick besides the equipment they created due to the strong current in the river, managed to get the iPhone 8 out of the water. Trying to open the iPhone 8 they removed from the water, the couple was very surprised to see that the phone was working.
It is a known fact that iPhone 8 is IP67 certified. This certificate shows that on the paper, iPhone 8 will withstand water at a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes. Despite this certification, Apple underlines that their phones do not provide 100% protection against water. Despite this, the iPhone 8, which has been dragged for 2 months in the 346-kilometer-long River Thames, is still working, no matter where you look.
