Cool thread on magnet fishing to recover an iPhone and, as a bonus, a Nintendo Switch.
Something happened tonight. A friend of mine dropped his iPhone 12 Pro in the canal in Berlin. It disappeared in the mud. He waded through the 3ft deep water. No way to find it. But he found a Nintendo Switch instead.— Frederik Riedel 🐻❄️ (@frederikRiedel) May 29, 2021
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.
