It can actually go deeper than advertised. I dropped mine at a marina and it was submerged 8 feet deep in a murky river for over 12 hours before a diver could come get it out. I honestly thought it was a lost cause but needed it because I had my IDs and debit and credit cards in my wallet case. As soon as the diver handed it to me, the screen lit up like nothing happened. The speakers were of course a little muffled for a few hours and I got an error that there was water detected in the lightening connector when I tried to plug it in, and to let it dry out first, but it was still at 72% battery life so no big deal!! The iPhone 13 is 100% waterproof!!!!
