As many of you know, the original AW and Series 1 AW carry a water resistance rating of IPX7, which means resistant against water ingress to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes. However, Apple also has the following disclaimer: "(AW) has a water resistance rating of IPX7 under IEC standard 60529. (AW) is splash and water resistant, but submerging (AW) is not recommended." Despite this, Apple has been willing to swap out water-damaged AWs under the standard warranty, as evidenced by numerous MR members who have done this. The idea is if Apple advertises and sells the AW with an IPX7 rating, then they're legally obligated to replace any defective AWs (due to a manufacturing defect) that fail to perform within the scope of this rating. Surprisingly, the new IP67-rated iPhone 7/7+ carries the following disclaimer (emphasis in bold): "iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are splash, water, and dust resistant and were tested under controlled laboratory conditions with a rating of IP67 under IEC standard 60529. Splash, water, and dust resistance are not permanent conditions and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear. Do not attempt to charge a wet iPhone; refer to the user guide for cleaning and drying instructions. Liquid damage not covered under warranty." So why is Apple willing to replace water-damaged AWs under the standard warranty but is allegedly refusing to do the same with water-damaged iPhone 7/7+, despite the new iPhone's IP67 water resistance rating?
