- A Family has had their lost iPhone returned to them, two months after dropping the phone into a lake at Disney World.
- Lisa and Jacob Troyer were on a boat on the Seven Seas Lagoon when the iPhone fell out of her bag.
- A team of Disney scuba divers found the device and she got it back two months later, still working.
A family from Montana who dropped an iPhone in the Seven Seas Lagoon has had the device returned to them two months later, and in working condition.
As reported by MacRumors:
Lisa was contacted by Disney two months later, initially ignoring the calls because she thought they were from telemarketers. Eventually, her father-in-law got in touch to say that Disney had found her iPhone.
Even though it had been submerged for "quite some time", the device was "completely functional":
Lisa was so impressed she emailed Tim Cook to tell her about the story, he thanked her for sharing it. Apple's iPhone's are waterproof to a degree, but having one function after two months at the bottom of a lake is pretty impressive...
