Can you tie fishing line on them and sink it to the bottom while taking video?

To up the ante, we wanted to take the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro to greater depths. Teaming up with Sofar Ocean Technologies (formerly known as OpenROV), we mounted a brand-new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro on its underwater drone, Trident. It can reach depths up to 328 feet (100 meters) and can be controlled from your phone. We sent the Trident deep down into Monterey Bay in California to see what would happen to the iPhones.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

This reminds me of the old Timex "Keeps on Ticking" ads! I wonder if an iPhone strapped to a boats propeller blade will still work? [icon_lol2.gif]

Yup. If you'll recall - at the time Apple was trying to justify the removal of the headphone jack by saying it would let water into the phone. That was nothing more than a lame excuse but I remember the debate well.
