The iPhone 13 has arrived, and as usual, there is a lot of excitement surrounding Apple’s latest smartphone. For years, Apple has been waterproofing the iPhone, improving its durability with each new release. The new iPhone 13 has an IP68 rating, which is the highest for any electronic device. But with this there also comes a big question if the iPhone 13 is provided with IP68, does that mean that it is waterproof? In this article we will see if the iPhone 13 is waterproof or not but before that let us know what IP is.
What exactly is an IP rating?
An IP rating is a globally recognized rating system that protects electronic devices from water and dust particles. IP ratings can be found on headphones, smartwatches, and a variety of other personal electronics. IP addresses are divided into two parts:
Dust protection: The first number measures dust protection on a scale of zero to completely sealed off (six).
Moisture resistance: The second number ranges from zero to complete protection against water pressure from all angles—including hot water (nine).
What is the IP rating of iPhone 13?
all iPhone 13 models, including the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max, have an IP68 rating. The IP68 rating on the iPhone 13 indicates that it is well protected against dust and water, but it is not fully waterproof.
Is iPhone 13 waterproof?
iPhone 13 models are resistance to dust, splashing, and immersion in water but within its limits. The iPhone 13 is not entirely waterproof. However, when you drop your phone in a pool by accident or take it into the water on purpose, your iPhone 13 should be fine. This simply means that the iPhone 13 is water- resistant but not waterproof.
Can iPhone 13 be used underwater?
The iPhone 13 can be submerged for up to 30 minutes in up to six meters of water, which is quite impressive. Although it is not a good idea to use your iPhone underwater. Most people want to use her iPhone as an underwater camera, but it wasn’t designed for that purpose. To use your iPhone underwater, I strongly advise you to use a standard waterproof case for iPhone 13 or 13 Pro Max or any other iPhone.
That’s it folks! Make sure to protect your iPhone around water as it is not waterproof. If your iPhone is down in water for more than 30 minutes below 6 meters, then I would suggest you to immediately contact Apple care support.
