Anyone want to verify this?
Try it and let us know.
Yeah, let's see those phones in a week or two. Just because they are able to withstand a dunk, doesn't mean they will last forever as the damage sets in. I know from experience unfortunately.
I'm betting that the lightning port, the receiver, the speaker, and the microphones no longer function.
Sure it is. Absolutely it's waterproof. What, would I lie to you?
Actually I seem to remember one of the things about the Lightning port is that it has been waterproof since the beginning. Don't know about any other parts.
Where did you get this from?
Probably referring to the connector, which makes sense since we have open air pins. Don't want to be able to just stick that thing in a kids mouth and give them a zap lol.
I wouldn't doubt that they quietly made them more water resistant- not water proof by any means.
After all, it only reduces the Applecare claims for swaps of wet dead phones and saves Apple money in the long run keeping phones in working condition from the start.
And Applecare user who paid $129 and never uses it is MUCH more profitable to someone who pays the $129 and $99 incident fee but Apple has to swap them a new device.
Lmao, yeah, waterproof, try it, report back
The connector(usb wire) is not the thing dunked in water though. It's the whole phone.
And the port that the connector goes inside or any other part of the iPhone is not waterproof.
I realize that. The poster who said he seems to remember from somewhere probably just read about the cable itself. That's what my guess is.
Either way I wouldn't stick anything like that in water
as long as you microwave it to dry it out it is fine.
Lol. Right. Anyway, was just sharing the article since I remember reading that too. Maybe the poster will chime in about what he meant.
This should go without saying but. "Kids, don't try this at home"
Yea I think I was just referring to what you said. A quick Google search seemed to bring up random people saying stuff similar to what I was saying. I am probably not the only person confused by the waterproof connector thing.
That being said I did find an article that after the 6s was in a bowl of water for an hour the Lightning port worked fine when the phone was dried.
I recall that the connector was waterproof as well, and frankly it makes a lot of sense to me. Remember that the 30 pin connector lasted for 10 years before lightning came along. Even if apple isn’t producing waterproof phones now, they want to make the lighting connector as futureproof as possible and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see waterproof iPhones 7 or 8 years from now.
absolute DUMBEST thing I've ever seen someone do
