The local time was 3 am when the iPhone 12 Pro was pulled to the surface and not only was it working fine, the battery was almost fully charged despite it spending hours in the canal. The Nintendo Switch, on the other hand, was no longer functional although to be fair, we have no idea how long that device was underwater.
Back in March, we told you about an iPhone 11 that still turned on after spending six months at the bottom of a lake in British Columbia. A diver discovered the handset, retrieved it, and called the owner to tell her that her iPhone had been found. Fatemeh Ghodsi, who was reunited with her iPhone, said, “I was in complete shock, initially to start with…It was kind of like a zombie phone coming back to me, because I’d totally made peace with it being gone.”
