Neal told The Today Show audience that she always carries a “go bag” with her at all times, and the iPhones that belonged to her and her friends were stored inside it. Once they jumped overboard, they tried to call for help with their iPhones. Even though one phone was already damaged, Neal’s water-resistant iPhone was thankfully still working.When the coast guard came to rescue the group, Neal’s smartphone was used to record footage of them being pulled out of the water. No one knows exactly which iPhone model Neal had, however, all iPhone models from the iPhone 7 and up are water-resistant, so they could have worked in this situation.Following the incident, Neal wrote a note to Apple and thanked them for making the high-quality iPhone.
