Wonderful! iPhone 12 Still Alive After 3 Months Drowning in River

A diver in California, United States found an iPhone 12 that had sunk while cleaning in a river. Miraculously the iPhone 12 was still alive after spending three months at the bottom of the river.

The diver named Lee found the iPhone 12 while cleaning the Stanislaus River on November 10. The iPhone 12 was found among rocks and was covered in algae

Lee took the iPhone 12 home to be cleaned, and he left it to dry for several days. On November 16, Lee managed to activate the iPhone after connecting it to a charger.

The iPhone apparently did not have a passcode, and Lee was able to unlock it to see information such as the last photo taken and contacts. The last content in the Photos application is a video taken at the river where the cellphone was found.

The video was taken on September 4, which indicates that the iPhone 12 had been submerged in the river for three months, as quoted by Apple Insider, Monday (25/12/2023).

Lee has not succeeded in finding the owner of the iPhone . However, he had planned to contact several numbers on the cellphone’s contact list.

The iPhone 12 itself has IP68 certification, which means this cellphone can be immersed under water to a depth of six meters for 30 minutes. However, in some cases iPhones and other waterproof cellphones can last longer in water due to several factors.

Water and dust can be prevented from entering the internal parts of the iPhone with the help of gaskets. So as long as the gasket is not damaged, the iPhone will not be seriously damaged even if it is submerged under water for a long time.

The gasket on an iPhone can be damaged by dropping it, being repeatedly submerged in water, or being exposed to steam. So it’s best not to drown the cellphone on purpose because it’s not certain that the gasket is still in perfect condition.

iPhone 17 Pro Max will be equipped with a 48 MP telephoto camera

The new iPhone 17 series will be launched in 2025, but leaks regarding this cellphone are already starting to emerge. The latest rumors reveal that the iPhone 17 Pro Max will bring a quite significant camera upgrade.

Jeff Pu, an analyst who often covers companies in Apple’s supply chain, said the iPhone 17 Pro Max will likely feature a 48 MP telephoto camera, as quoted from MacRumors, Monday (18/12/2023).

He added that the 48 MP telephoto camera on the iPhone 17 Pro Max will be optimized for use in conjunction with the Apple Vision Pro headset which will be launched in the United States in early 2024. However, Pu did not explain the form of optimization or the lens that will be used.

Currently the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have a 48 MP main camera, a 12 MP ultrawide camera and a 12 MP telephoto camera. Thanks to the iOS 17.2 update, these two cellphones can record spatial video with 3D depth which can be played on Vision Pro.

Pu previously said that the iPhone 16 Pro will be equipped with a 48 MP ultrawide camera and the iPhone 15 Pro already has a 48 MP main camera. If this rumor is accurate, the iPhone 17 Pro Max will be the first iPhone to have all rear cameras with a resolution of 48 MP.

Apart from the telephoto camera update, Pu also claims that the iPhone 17 Pro and iPhone 17 Pro Max will be equipped with a Wi-Fi 7 chip made by Apple. This new chip is predicted to threaten Broadcom, which currently supplies Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chips for iPhones.

Pu believes that Apple will present its Wi-Fi chip for all iPhone 18 variants in 2026. However, he did not share additional information about the chip.

Of course, the new iPhone 17 series will be launched in the fall of 2025, which is still two years away. Apple’s plans are still not final and may change in the future.
