Apple officially declares the iPhone 11 as IP68 rated meaning it is water-resistant in up to 6.5 feet of water for 30 minutes. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are also IP68 rated but can go deeper i.e. up to 13 feet for 30 minutes.
To find out how deep Apple’s latest flagship iPhones can be taken outside of the official ratings, the folks over at CNET have pushed these devices to extremes in an underwater drone test.
Here’s how they performed the test:
“Teaming up with Sofar Ocean Technologies (formerly known as OpenROV), we mounted a brand-new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro on its underwater drone, Trident. It can reach depths up to 328 feet and can be controlled from your phone. We sent the Trident deep down into Monterey Bay in California on a chilly fall day to see what would happen to the iPhones.”
