    I am thinking if I should get a iPhone 6 plus or 7 plus

    in fact 6plus is far enough for me because I don't play games or even watch videos

    However, the feature in iPhone 7 that attracts me is anti-moisture

    what does that mean? I don't think it will still survive if I drop the iPhone 7 into water

    does it only mean it will work under rainy day

    in that case, I've used my current iPhone 4S many times in the rain but never have any issue.

    Any advice

    The m iPhone 7 is rated IP67X water resistance. It can get wet to a degree, however submerging in water or having it constantly saturated in water would not be something I would try.

    Hi, any degree of water-resistance of iPhone 6/6+?

    Needless to consider dropping into water,but I will want to use the phone in the rainy day without condom to the phone, will iPhone 6/6+ survive??

    Nothing official or even unofficial really. There are some anecdotal stories about the iPhone 6s/6s+ being able to withstand liquid exposure a bit more than the models that came before it, but not really much as far as 6/6+ go.

    Personally I don't recommend the 6+ phone. Go for the 6s+ or the 7+. I would even recommend the 5s over the 6+

    There is no ratings qualified for the 6/6 Plus. I would not subject either device to water if you plan on using it regularly.

    The 6S and 6S plus have an adhesive gasket around the entire edge of the LCD assembly joining input to the frame and each connector inside has a rubber gasket around it p, but offering SOME waterproofing, but I certainly wouldn't rely on that.

    Officially, the IP rating the iphone 7 has means that it can be submerged in standing water up to one meter for up to 30 minutes, but apple only say it's water resistant to cover their backsides
