Be aware that the iPhone is not “waterproof”. Apple does not guarantee warranty if the device does not work properly after being immersed in water. Recently, one of the Weibo users posted a video showing that the iPhone XS Max was damaged after being left under 10 cm of water for 2 minutes.
Another case occurred in January
The owner of the iPhone XS said that his phone was purchased in October 2018. “When I bought the phone, there was an advertisement that said it had an IP68 rating and could be placed under 2 meters of water for 30 minutes.” He always believed that Apple iPhones could easily work in water.
What really happened to the iPhone XS submerged in water?
“I did a simple 2 minute take in the water and then the phone suddenly warmed up, very, very hot and stopped turning on. The Apple repair shop said water should have entered and the motherboard may have burned out. The other party stated that the repair cost was 4,600 yuan ($ 659) and that the damaged phone was not guaranteed. “
The Apple retail store said that in the experimental environment, seawater can certainly enter because the density is too high.
But the user is sure that Apple has advertised a feature that does not have the iPhone XS.
Apple Customer Service said that the use of Apple devices in water is not recommended and there is no guarantee that liquids will not enter the body.
Is the iPhone water resistant?
In fact, Apple’s official website has a clear description of the iPhone’s water resistance. The waterproof effect of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max reaches the IP68 level according to the IEC 60529 standard. This means that it supports a maximum depth of 4 meters in water for a maximum of 30 minutes.
The waterproof effect of the iPhone 11 reaches the IP68 level according to the IEC 60529 standard. Thus, it supports the maximum depth of 2 meters in water for up to 30 minutes. The waterproof effect of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max reaches the IP68 level according to the IEC 60529 standard (maximum depth of 2 meters in water for up to 30 minutes). IPhone SE (2nd generation), iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have the IP67 level according to the standard IEC 60529 (the longest stay is up to 1 meter underwater for 30 minutes ).
Immersion damage is not covered by the warranty.
