When Jonathan Ordman went that day to fetch the Bondi Icebergs club, located on the southern edge of Bondi Beach in Sydney, last December he couldn't imagine what would happen with his iPhone. Australia has been facing terrible fires in recent months and that day it was there "very unusual ship" as the story's protagonist tells us from News.com.au.
For that reason it was decided that make some sunshine photos over the ocean with your iPhone XR, for this he drew near the rocks a little, to get a better view, and it was there that an unexpected big wave brought him down and his device, he fell into the water.
The iPhone lost all its photos
Due to the weather and the danger of the rocks, Jonathan didn't get his iPhone back then and we decided to wait that the wave was good, but there was no luck either.
"I went back to look for him, but I gave up because I had been in the water for five hours."
Jonathan stopped buying the new iPhone the next day, but the problem was much bigger: I had no backup. What I had on that device 10 years of photography, which is very important to him.
“I realized I didn't have a backup because my computer was infected, deleted it completely and forgot to backup. Having 10 years of photos, it was a great experience. ”
However, the news of his iPhone XR was endless and 5 days after Jonathan received some great news, his wife told him that a man contacted him because he found an iPhone. Thanks to the iPhone's emergency contacts, which had to be well organized, the man, a beach swimming teacher, was able to contact Jonathan to return the call.
However, if you were able to see the iPhone emergency contacts, that would mean that His iPhone XR had survived all this time underwater
"For some of the most advanced kids we do an awareness class on open water and beaches. One of the tasks is to descend a large rock shelf near the Bondi Icebergs, covered with fluffy moss. I haven't seen her in a long time, but down there, on one of the holes in the rock, a brunette sits, so I put my head up to see if it was inside and what I found was a phone in the hole
Peter had no apparent way to unlock the iPhone as he had no code, however he learned IPhone emergency contacts from medical data, and thanks to them he was able to contact Jonathan's wife and return the phone to them. What we are confident of is that Jonathan will now back up his photos to iCloud.
