Well it seems there are waterproof.
You got any proof?
just check the video. He puts it in water for more than an hour.
They said the Moto X was waterproof too after someone boiled one for over 30 minutes and it didn't shut off, but mine died after 20 minutes after being in the water for 20 seconds.
Don't submerge your iPhone.
whow. Definitely didn't expect that when he put them in the bowls of water.
Wow. That was unexpected.
Wow! Sorry, I didn't see the video link when I responded. Thats pretty awesome.
Yowza! Pretty impressed they are still working, but I suspect that won't be the case in a few hours or a few days.
I'm thinking that they opened them and had them treated to be waterproof. There is a company that will do that. Of course, you lose your warranty... And in any respect, they can put THEIR phone underwater. I won't.
That's crazy. Not sure what motivates people to do such things to brand new iPhones right out of the box but I'm glad they do.
Anyone feel like actually seeing if this works? haha
So Apple made them water proof just like the Apple watch but never announced it.
I'm pretty sure that Apple included the waterproof rating in the manual for the watch though.
They are not waterproof. Teardowns revealed Apple is starting to use rubber seals, but the only accurate statement that can be made is: The new iPhones appear to be more water resistant than previous iPhones when gently placed in a shallow bowl of water.
nice to know.
I don't plan going to the deep end with the iphone.
Go deep sea diving with it then let us know how "waterproof" they are.
The Watch is rated and advertised as IPx7 and could easily have been rated ATM5.
This is insane about the iPhone and coming completely out of left field. Is this real? Need to see more test of this before I can accept it.
iFixit doesn't say anything about the case being sealed from water ingress. The Lightning and headphone ports would have to have a obvios internal seal to keep water out. There would also have to be gaskets around all the switches and the Home button.
Someone will see this and want to shower with the phone and Apple Watch.
Yes, I'd say that the more accurate assessment would be increased water *resistance* to spray and small spills.
IFixit's tear down showed rubber gaskets around the power button, and adhesive strips that appear to seal the gap between the display and body, but I did not see evidence of full sealing.
Speakers, microphones, headphone jack, and lightning port can still let water in.
Home buttons have had gaskets for at least the past several generations. I checked the iFixit tear downs and looked at spare parts.
The "button" is glued to a gasket which is sealed against the back of the display plate. A stainless steel back plate is screwed in behind this to make sure it doesn't move.
OK, but the Lightning port and headphone jack would need to have gaskets behind them. Water doesn't discriminate and will find a way unless ALL possible entrances are sealed.
I'm about to hit the pacific ocean tomorrow and check
I think that is just one of those waterproof coatings they put on. At the end you can see the water just disappear off the phone almost.
