After salvaging the white iPhone 11, he put it in a desiccant containing silica to dry it and clean up dirt. Since then, the phone can be turned on successfully, but the receiver and speaker are damaged, and the battery life is still 96. He pulled out the SIM card and read the contact in the SIM card with another phone, and successfully found the owner.

The iPhone 11 has IP68 waterproof certification, which is designed to keep water free for 30 minutes at 2m water depth.
