don't think that's necessary - there's no reason the connectors can't be made waterproof without port covers - i'd be more worried about microphone/speakers quality if they were waterproof.Ugh, just no.
Have you seen the Xperia? With all those fragile flappy port covers? Do you really want to have to pull a flap open with your nail every time you need to charge your phone? And then watch the flap deteriorate over a few months because it's a 5c piece of plastic attached to the phone by a 1c plastic hinge? :-/
You heard of wireless charging?Nobody likes saggy flaps
Doubt it would be salt water proof anywayIf there were an iPhone I could take underwater pictures in the ocean with I'd pay an extra 100 bucks for that without question!
Don't they do that by just spraying It with some sh**theres a company called underwater audio who take iPod shuffles and are able to make them waterproof without changing the device itself. perhaps this process could be applied to iPhones.
