MagSafe fishing finds and recovers an iPhone 12 Pro from a canal

Cool thread on magnet fishing to recover an iPhone and, as a bonus, a Nintendo Switch.

There’s an emerging hobby called magnet fishing. Yes, it’s a real thing. Here’s a link to a beginner’s kit. There are tons of these.

Kind of want to give this a try, but I’m worried about hurting someone (the magnets can be very powerful) and also worried about erasing things like SD/credit cards and magnetic drives/devices.
