Are iPhones waterproof? A few years ago companies like Apple started advertising their phones as being "water resistant." They also started including an "IP rating" in many of their devices' specifications. But what does any of that actually mean, and most importantly, can you trust your phone in the water?

I most definitely expect a $15,000 watch to be more water resistant than a $300 watch. So please don’t try and downplay the integrity of the iwatch. What do you expect ?? Tell me?? Is what you want, is for a $300 dollar watch to be up to par with a $25000 watch. I’ll say this nicely (get out of here). Ps I don’t own iwatch or Rolex. Just stating factual opinion.

New iPhone Xs (2 months old) failed because of ambient humidity. According to the Apple store I dropped the phone (never did) they scratched it when examining it. After it was dropped there was some sort of “gap” between the display and the body where humidity entered. Never submerged it, never even held it with wet hands. Done with Apple.

You also remove your oliophobic coating making it more prone to fingerprints.

Thia is not true. In the most big company the water resiatant is renewd aftrr were open your dwvice (im a technition in a big comoany) we actually get the adhisive from the compamy that manufacture thw phone. Thw way its work is that you connect the phone to a apeical testing softwer and close with glue all the holls and put 500 grams weight on the phone and the pressure create is massured by the software

Lemme say wat I know before I watch the video.....my assumption is that waterproofing means that water can enter into a gadget but the gadget is unharmed and water resistant means the gadget tries by all means to you know “resist” the water from getting inside because it can be damaged if water gets in ......🤩am I rt?
Isaac Kim (19 days ago)
Don't wet your phone even if it has an IP rating. It will still get water damage (somehow) and as the video describes, the manufacturer will not fix it for free. The waterproof? ads are very misleading...do not swim with it, do not soak it, do not dunk it, etc...always have waterproofing case over it to make it extra safe.

So basically, the water resistance thing makes the customer think, it can bath and survive and that pushes up the sales, 'cause everybody believes the ad and won't look up those numbers ... what they don't tell you, is what Kyle said... if the battery is dead and won't recharge, you eather now how to open and close the phone correctly and then replace the battery or you can buy a new phone every 3 years...

4:05 BS, the Samsung Galaxy S5 had a removable back, so you can swap out the battery if it was wearing out, or if you had a second one to avoid waiting for it to recharge. That phone is water resistant.

Really disappointed in Kyle women’s. Water resistance started on the 6s not the 6. The adhesive is mostly the 3D Touch sensor, the Bluetooth antenna is an after thought.
