iPhone models have been rated at least IP67 since the release of iPhone 7. This includes Apple’s entry level second-generation SE, which can withstand water exposure under controlled laboratory conditions up to 6 meters deep for 30 minutes before its battery dies or data becomes inaccessible due to damage from common liquids like spilled coffee you might accidentally drop on your smartphone while it is resting atop one side (the screen doesn’t always protect against liquid Immersing). All current devices are listed as “ splash resistant”.
- The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, and the new pro-sized model are all IP68 certified which means they can withstand being underwater up to 6 meters or 22 feet before damage occurs.
- The iPhone SE is designed to be water-resistant up to 1 meter deep and 30 minutes in length.
- iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, and pro are all water resistant up to 30 minutes in depth. The higher end model is even able to withstand a maximum of 6 meters without any damage!
- The iPhone 11 Pro and Max are designed to be water-resistant up until 30 minutes of exposure at a maximum depth.
- iPhone 11 is designed to be used in water up until 1 meter deep for 30 minutes before it becomes damaged.
- The iPhone XS and its bigger brother, the iPhone XSMax are both water resistant up to 2 meters deep in fresh or saltwater conditions. They can withstand being exposed for 30 minutes at maximum before they become damaged so long as you don’t go any deeper than that!
- The iPhone X and its successor, the XR are designed for people who demand high-quality Apple products in tough situations. The phone’s water resistant design makes it perfect to use when you’re out on an adventure or just need your device with you wherever life takes us.
- iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are IP67 rated, meaning they can withstand a 30 minute maximum depth in IEC standard 60529.
- The iPhone 7 is designed to withstand water and dust up until 1 meter deep, while the Plus model can go 30 minutes before problems arise.
The iPhone is a great device for keeping in touch with the world, but it’s important to be mindful of how you use your phone. Avoiding certain activities like swimming or bathing will help avoid damage and ensure that nothing gets wet.
