If you dropped an iPhone 11 Pro deep in an icy lake, would you consider getting it back? Probably a lot of people wouldn’t dare. Or he’ll back off thinking the phone’s going to be broken. But a woman named Angie Carriere never gave up to save her device for a month. The determined woman’s attempt to recover the phone and the final version of the device stunned everyone who saw it.
A similar incident has occurred in Canada in recent weeks. Diving enthusiast Clayton Helkenberg and his wife Heather found an iPhone 11 at the bottom of Lake Harrison. The smartphone, which had been waiting deep in the water for six months, had started to work almost completely smoothly. Now a similar story has come from another lake in the country.
The iPhone 11 Pro, which had been waiting in the lake for a month, shocked onlookers
Canada’s Angie Carriere went fishing in Lake Waskesiu with friends to celebrate her 50th birthday. At one point in the ride, a strong wind blew his tent, which was waiting on the sidelines. At the time, the iPhone 11 Pro device was on Angie’s knee. The woman stood up to fix the wind-damaged tent. Meanwhile, the phone slipped off his knee and into the lake.
Angie Carriere didn’t dare rescue her from the lake when her Apple phone fell into the water. But then he changed his mind and twice came back to get the device out of the lake. In both, however, the result was frustration. He couldn’t find the phone. But on the third visit, with the help of her friends, she finally found her device trapped deep in the lake and brought it to the surface.
They put a magnet on the end of the fishing line and lowered it into the lake to bring the phone ashore. Carriere’s plan worked, and the iPhone 11 Pro reached its owner again. What about the device? He’s safe! “There’s nothing on my phone that doesn’t work, it’s completely seamless,” Angie said. The lucky woman was a guest on a YouTube channel called CTV News and described her experiences.
The iPhone 11 Pro phone, released in 2019, is IP68 certified. In this way, it manages not to pass water to a depth of 4 meters for 30 minutes. But Apple never commits more to its users. It’s almost a miracle the phone got stuck at the bottom of a lake in Canada for a month and then surfaced intact. That’s why it’s advisable not to do crazy tests like this.
