EverythingApplePro has put Apple’s newest iPhone 12 to an underwater test, while also putting the iPhone 11 to the same test.
The underwater stress test sees both iPhones submerged into a lake in the Pacific Northwest.
The iPhone 12 has an IP68 rating of being able to survive to a maximum depth of 6 metres (19.6 feet) for 30 minutes. The iPhone 11’s IP68 rating says it can survive up to 30 minutes when submerged for 2 metres (6.5 feet).
Bottom line: both iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 remained unfazed from being submerged to 9.1 metres (at least 25 feet) for 21-ish minutes. Everything worked fine and there were no issues, even after drying off. Very impressive.
“iPhones now, you do not need to worry about fresh water. IP68 at 6 metres is no joke,” says the YouTube channel. “The iPhone 12 truly is the most waterproof iPhone yet,” said EAP.
