A few days back, we reported about an iPhone that worked perfectly well after being bitten by a shark.
Now, in a similar albeit extremely weird case, an AirPod was found to be working after being swallowed by a man in Taiwan.
He claims he ate the device 'accidentally' but it worked even in his stomach.
Here are the details.
According to a Daily Mail report, the man, Ben Hsu, slept with a pair of AirPods still in his ears but found only one of them after waking up.
He looked up for the device everywhere and then used an AirPod tracking feature of the iPhone to find the device.
It showed that the bud was still somewhere in the same room.
After looking around, Hsu noticed the beeping sound of the AirPod, triggered by the iPhone tracker, was following him around.
This led him to believe that the earbud was sitting in his stomach and working well.
"I checked under my blanket and looked around but couldn't find it - then I realized the sound was coming from my stomach," he told Daily Mail.
With his presumption, Hsu reached out to a doctor and took an X-ray to see if the AirPod was really in his stomach.
And, it was; the scan confirmed the device's location but doctors said he wouldn't have to go for surgery to get it removed.
They claimed it should come out through feces, failing which they'd go for the surgery.
Just as the doctors expected, the AirPod came out.
However, as surprising as it may sound, that thing still worked, even after recovery and all the washing and drying that followed.
"The battery was still at 41 percent! It was incredible," Hsu said, calling his experience of Apple AirPods purely 'magical'.
With this, now we know how good the waterproofing is on the AirPods!
While we are not sure if Hsu would want to use that AirPod going forward, the case certainly reaffirms the quality of the device.
And, naturally, when a top-tier wireless earbud could withstand so much, there would be a huge demand for it.
However, Apple is still struggling to catch up with the demand for the product, 9To5Mac reports.
