Last year Apple introduced the first device with the standard IP67 water resistance. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus can be used in the rain without any fear. Also, the smartphone can withstand immersion in water to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes. When creating the Apple Watch Series 2 the developers have gone further — the device is able to push the water, numb in the inside of the case during swimming or in the shower.
Before the official presentation of the iPhone and iPhone Plus 8/8 X in the network appeared the news that the new Apple smartphones will receive the standard waterproof IP 68, on which now there is only one gadget — Samsung Galaxy S8. However, after the presentation dispelled all doubts and assumptions — new iPhone created by the standard of IP 67, as last year’s model. With the new iPhone is also not much to worry about, caught in the rain, however, Apple warns that a wet iPhone can not charge. Moreover, the ingress of water into the inside of the case is not covered by warranty, and the smartphone is not subject to free repair, or replacement.
