    Just how resistant to water are the new 6S's?

    I try not to use my phone in the rain, I don't use it in the bath or anything, so we're good there, however I got thinking.

    What about condensation?

    So on a typical British day, it's raining heavily so I put on my waterproof. I place my 6S in the pocket of my waterproof. I check it occasionally but try not to take it out fully. When I'm in somewhere dry to use my phone, it's damp due to condensation.

    How resistant are iPhones to that?

    My wife dropped mine in a lake the whole top half was completely submerged. No issues with it. This happened about a month ago.

    Very humid weather perhaps ? Course no one from the U.K has ever complained on MacRumor about your question

    Take care as more than likely the water sensors will have been activated and the warranty would be void.

    Understood, I've got insurance and am not looking to cheat Apple should something go wrong. I'll use it until it has issues and let Apple determine what caused it. If it was the water, I'll pay the deductible. I'm think it will last anyway. So far so good!

    I've always used all my iPhones to play music when I'm showering. I've never had a problem with condensation yet and I certainly don't have problems with the 6S Plus which has also proven splash resistant so far.
