It went far beyond Apple’s declared resistance with IP68 certification: an iPhone 11 Pro survived for 30 days on the bottom of a frozen lake in Canada

A couple of weeks ago we told you about an iPhone that survived after being at the bottom of a lake for 6 months. Today, however, the news concerns an iPhone 11 Pro that fell into a frozen lake in Canada and was recovered, still working, after 30 days in freezing water.

The service was broadcast on TV on CTV News and features Angie Carriere as the protagonist. The woman was celebrating her 50th birthday on Lake Waskesiu when her iPhone slipped from her pocket and ended up directly in a fishing spot.

Thanks to a magnet it was recovered a month later and when it was connected to the charger it was still fully functional: “There is nothing wrong with this iPhone,” says the woman. “Retrieving the phone was important not so much for the smartphone itself but for the photos that were contained within it.”

Officially, the iPhone 11 Pro is IP68, which means it can resist immersed in a liquid for 30 minutes and up to 2 meters deep but the test to which Angie’s device was subjected goes far beyond these results. Here is the news report:
