That poor iPhone.
Strange banging from the bathroom pipes led a Maryland resident to find her lost 2012 iPhone clogging her toilet.
Toilets and iPhones have gone together right from the start, with all users getting that sinking feeling as their phone goes underwater. Or almost all users.
According to the US edition of The Sun newspaper, Maryland resident Becki Beckmann did not notice when it happened to her. On the night of Halloween, 2012, Beckmann's iPhone just seemed to go missing.
"It was mysterious, but it was gone." Ultimately, she said she'd had no choice and had, "replaced it, moved on, whatever."
But it wasn't gone.
Instead, it was subjected to a decade of everything flushing down that toilet.
Ten years later, Beckmann and her husband began hearing a "banging sound" when they would flush the toilet. "Initially we blamed it on the toilet being old," she said, "or the house construction being terrible."
Beckmann's husband took a plunger to the toilet - and out came the iPhone. It's not reported what model the phone was, but images appear to show an iPhone 4s.
I gotta say, for 10 years in a toilet pipe, the iPhone held up pretty dang well, especially since the 4S was before the newer water-resistant models (that can still only survive 30 minutes under a few feet of water).
Please don't subject your technology to such cruelty, folks!
