YouTuber:EverthingApplePro has released a new video where a brand-new iPhone X is put through an extreme water test.
The first test conducted sees the iPhone X sitting in 1 metre of water for 30 minutes, which is Apple’s rating for the device. As expected, the device does survive and it remains fully functional.
Next, the iPhone X is placed in a basket and thrown 20 feet (6.1 metres) into a river. The device stays at this depth for a total of 5 minutes and survives.
Finally, Apple’s latest flagship smartphone was thrown into a washing machine for a full rinse cycle. This acted as a durability test as much as a water test. To the YouTuber’s surprise, the device came out fully functional after all of these tests.
Apple’s iPhone X clearly is the best iPhone the company has ever built. Owners of the device can be reassured that even if your device falls into a pool or gets wet, everything will most likely be fine.

***Edited to add labels***
While the extreme water test is impressive, it should be noted that the iPhone X is only water resistant and not waterproof. Liquid damage is not covered under warranty (see here).
Hope this helps
These tests are great and they only show what happens when you conduct the test using a new phone. What about a phone that had been put in service for 1 year? What about 2 years?
Furthremore, the tests are not really representative of typical real life situations.
Example 1: What happens when someone drops an iphone into the toilet containing contaminated water and soils?
Example 2: What happens when you drop the phone into a puddle of dirty water in a pothole?
Will the phone survive the above testing after it has been in service for 1 year? That's the question many wants to konw.
