So FaceID is great in the shower (and other times when your finger is wet)

    So I text people a lot. And sometimes I take the phone into the shower with me so I can continue a conversation (Hey, the phone is water resistant anyway... don’t judge me)

    But TouchID was super annoying because it rarely worked with wet fingers, so I’d have to enter my passcode all the time, which was also a pain with wet fingers.

    FaceID works flawlessly even with a wet face and wet hair.

    You do know that water “resistant” isn’t the same as water “proof”, right? And that water damage is not covered by your phone’s warranty.

    Every time you use your phone in the shower you’re running the risk of damaging it.

    It is more susceptible to water damage from steam than direct water, just a fair warning.

    I am well aware, but I could drop my phone as i hold it and reply to you. If I wanted to avoid every risk then I would just lock my phone in a safe and never use it.

    Do what you want, it’s your phone, but that is awful logic/rationalizing.
    That’s like saying, “I could die crossing the street anyway, so I might as well play a round or two of Russian Roulette.”

    showered with my 7+ since day one. never had an issue. great for podcasts, music, youtube... and the occasional early morning conference call where i just need to say ‘hi’ and listen for the remainder

    I’m just saying that it’s an acceptable risk for me. I get that you don’t think it is and that’s fine too

    Now I am forever going to wonder about the rest of the people on conference calls when they're quiet the entire time.

    i think i have heard (or known) about everything imaginable that goes on behind ‘mute’

    most memorable was a person taking the call while in the bathroom, forgot to mute, full sound effects, labored grunts, the whole shebang. seemed that lunch was not agreeable...

    there was a follow up email sent out reminder everyone of phone conference etiquette and always check you are on mute during ‘stall calls’
