A Waterproof iPhone 7S and 7S Plus could actually make its way to shelves in 2017. Whilst Apple hasn’t confirmed this themselves, there have been a lot of rumors circulating that suggest that waterproof capabilities could be the next thing added to Apple’s next iPhone lineup. This has been a long time coming, and something that consumers have been asking for, for a very long time.
Find out more on the capabilities of finally seeing a waterproof iPhone that’s expected to make its way to the concept of both the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus when it debuts during the summer of 2017.
iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 Nearly Waterproof Already
This may come as a surprise to you, but Apple actually made some sneaky changes earlier in the iPhone history that hinted at a full waterproof device. The iPhone 6S has been teared down to show that the device has a lot of waterproof wiring on the interior. Many iPhone 6S owners have also exclaimed that their devices have withstood more water damage than previous iPhones.
Interestingly, Apple hasn’t spoken out about the new waterproof capabilities of the iPhone 6S but there is no doubt that the device is slightly waterproof, even if it’s just a little bit. This reason alone suggests that a waterproof iPhone 7S could be a possibility.
One Step Away From Full Waterproof Capabilities
Whilst the iPhone 6S does have some waterproof capability, we don’t know the true IP rating and Apple has shied away from announcing the device as being waterproof. We’d like to think that Apple is just one step away from turning the iPhone 6S into a fully waterproof device and once the iPhone 7S is released, we think it’d be very likely that Apple makes the device at least IP67 certified.
Dust Resistant and Submersible in Water
We expect a waterproof iPhone 7S is very likely and we do think Apple will be confident enough with the waterproof capabilities that they will market it as a new feature. This isn’t 100% guaranteed information, but judging from the iPhone 6S build quality, we do believe it could be quite likely.
