The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are the first two models to be listed as “splash-and water-resistant” by Apple. Both phones carry an IP67 rating, which means they can handle being underwater for up 1meter for 30 minutes before their screens start displaying errors or becoming unresponsive; however, it is ill-advised to take these devices swimming in ocean settings where saltwater may corrupt them further than just making contact with skin (which would cause burns).
The iPhone 7’s durability has been called into question after it was discovered that the phone is only “water-resistant,” not waterproof. Liquid damage isn’t covered under Apple’s warranty and users run risk of purposefully submerging their device in water or getting stuck paying more for a new one if they decide to do so on purpose rather than by accident as soon as their old contract expires!
The iPhone is a high-tech wonder that can withstand accidental water incidents for up to 30 minutes. However, we don’t recommend taking photos in shallow waters, and at no point should you use your phone underwater or take it scuba diving for any length of time as the exterior may become damaged due its lightness which makes it susceptible when in contact with saltwater elements such as corrosion.
There are a variety of waterproof cases that promise to keep your device safe from water damage, but most are designed for older models that are not water-resistant.
