iPhone 12 tested for water resistance and left on the bottom of Lake Tahoe for 72 hours

CNET employees checked the level of waterproofing of the new iPhone 12, but decided to do it not in the usual and trivial way, but added a little creativity. The fact is that they plunged the device into the bottom of the lake.

The results looked pretty promising at first, but after a few days … not very much. Yes, Apple has assured that the iPhone 12 can only withstand splashes and a small amount of moisture. The officially confirmed protection rating is IP68, which means that the iPhone 12 can withstand submersion up to 6 meters of water for 30 minutes. This applies to all iPhone 12 models.

“Crash tests” showed that the new device from Apple has much more potential. By the way, the iPhone 11 has withstood a 39-foot immersion in salt water in Monterey Bay, which is located in California.

In the case of Lake Tahoe, the situation repeated itself, but the enthusiasts decided not to limit themselves to a half-hour immersion of the gadget. What happened to the device three days later? Nothing good, moisture got under the screen. But whether it was possible to work with the device further, history is silent.
