  • We know the iPhone 12 can handle spills and splashes, but Apple may be downplaying just how water-resistant this phone really is.
  • The drone can go as deep as 984 feet (300 meters) underwater; the pilot can see the view from Theseus’ camera, as well as monitoring depth and water temperature metrics from a computer on shore.
  • We recorded a voice memo before dunking the phone and could hear that after the first dive the speaker sounded a little muffled in comparison, but it’s hard to tell whether that would’ve improved after letting it dry out longer.
