    Here it is, I have seen nothing about it! it'll be interesting to see if it is indicated as being damaged by liquid.

    First off, no one should be intentionally submerging their phones in water. Yeah it's safe to use in the rain but that's about as far as I would take it. I see the IP67 rating as a safety feature - my car has airbags but I'm not going to go driving into walls to make sure they work.

    With that being said, I doubt you'll see anyone with a pink water indicator as there is a rubber gasket/seal around the SIM card tray. It's a pretty decent guarantee that no water will enter the tray when using the iPhone in the rain. It would take a relatively decent amount of water pressure (i.e. being submerged more than 3 feet) for water to enter the tray. With that being said, always make sure your SIM tray is seated very well into its slot!

    Agree with the poster above, it took some extra pressure to remove the SIM card from my new 7Plus. The rubber gasket seems to fit pretty tight.

    That's a fair answer, I was just wondering as people are huge on how good it deals with water, just nothng about the LDI itself. I'm still waiting for 7+ but not wanting to use it ever in water but using it with wet hands/in the rain is more what I'm thinking about.

    I did the same thing. I accidentally removed the sim and it's harder to poke it out with the seal.
